Hello All

               On boat back to Blighty now 2000 miles at Roscoff !(1 lt of oil used so I have done something wrong on new engine! And puffs of blue smoke!!!)

Will investigate when Memsahib let's me in the garage!

A few last photos last digs and lunch stop in Roscoff I Will work out total cost when home and if I do not have a heart attack I will tell you but it has been a fantastic trip over the 3 and a half weeks seen some sights downed some vino (for medicinal reasons!) And meet some nice people !

The booking of the hotels / B&B's must have been a nightmare, and how did you manage the underground parking  as well.

I think you had a fantastic trip, and only one litre of oil for 2200 miles i reckon thats brilliant, thanks for sharing it all
