Good news yesterday - Bernie's x-ray was clear. The pesky pneumonia has gone. We celebrated in style with cake in the garden followed by a beautiful walk on Trebarwith Strand with Jeffers. It is such a relief for both of us. Bernie has been worrying and I have obviously been concerned too. Now the preparations start to get ready for the trip. The plan is to leave on Wednesday and travel to Harwich over two days. We will stop in the ferry port overnight before catching the early morning ferry and arriving in Holland on Friday late afternoon. The only fixed item on the agenda is Stockholm - we are booked in at a campsite from Wednesday 30th May to Sunday 3rd June. Stockholm marathon is on Saturday 2nd June so all the training will hopefully pay off. We haven't done lots of jobs as I think we both didn't want to tempt fate so now we have a long list of things to do in the next five days both to sort out things for the trip and the house for our first visitors who arrive next Friday.
Both retired this year and decided to embark on a long trip in our camper van Mack to Scandinavia. We intended to go for three months but Bernie having pneumonia put matters on hold. Now the plan has scaled back and we hope to travel around Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We will have to save Finland for another time.... full info
