“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 1 – 5th May 2009 - Newhaven, to Dieppe, to Fecamp – northern Normandy.

Boarded the ferry at 9am after a tearful goodbye to Mum and Jon.
Ant slept most of the journey, whilst I invested in a new road map of Europe and we decided on heading along the coast towards Fecamp.
We set up at a lovely campsite, some clever hillside driving by Ant placed us on a small spot overlooking the sea. We walked into the harbour town/village to find somewhere to eat and watch the Champions League game (typical!!!) but ended up in a pasta place, drinking Italian vino and watched only the first 20 minutes of the game (Man U were up 2-0 – so Ant got down heartened with it - hehe!), before heading back to bed. Lets hope it doesn’t take too much longer to recover from the WOWO weekend, else we will see only eyelids through most of France!


  1. Whats the vino like? Glad to hear you are still recovering from WOWO I'm knackered.

  2. think Ants liver is still suffering. The vino was lovely - going to give tonight a break though!

  3. I need to know - have you used the new shoes!!!!
