    kleiner Grenzverkehr

    jetzt sind es nur noch wenige Meter nach Schottland und noch etwa 30 Meilen bis zum ersten Campingplatz. Eingekauft habe ich bereits, kann also nicht mehr allzuviel schiefgehen.

    Leaving England

    August 4, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Letzte Stadt in England war Berwick-upon-Tweed. Morgen gehts dauerhaft für den Rest der Reise nach Schottland. Nette kleine Stadt direkt am Meer und bei Ebbe kann man schön an den Klippen langlaufen oder man läuft auf der Stadtmauer einmal um die Stadt. Ansonsten ist dies eher ein Erholungsort. England und Wales hatten die wesentlich besseren Straßen. War nicht immer optimal und manchmal hätte ich am liebsten hingeschmissen wegen der bescheuerten Streckenführung und dem endlosen auf und ab. Dennoch hat es sich gelohnt, denn diese vielen Eindrücke von den Landschaften und Menschen hier, werden mich wohl lange begleiten. Das Linksfahren ist inzwischen in Mark und Bein übergegangen und ich orientiere mich schon automatisch nach Links. Sollte ich zuhause aber lassen, könnte unglücklich enden. Morgen weiter an der Küste bis Dunbar.Read more

    Berwick upon Tweed

    May 8, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    We arrived in Berwick mid afternoon and found a pitch with wonderful sea views. We soon made the van cosy with heating on full. Our first full day in Berwick we spent in the van - Alan working on his final job before full retirement kicks in and Karen sewing Kirsty's quilt (a long overdue project!!!!). The next day we walked from the site into Berwick - in glorious sunshine!!! Still chilly outside, but it does make a difference when the sun comes out! What a beautiful place Berwick is - a walled city next to the sea. We walked the walls of the city and walked along the pier. Also looked at the shops on the High St. All very nice. Back to the van for lunch. Alan spent the afternoon working (a tight deadline on this job means it has to be tied up soon) and Karen sewing again. The campsite is filling up, and is apparently full on Sunday. A very nice site that we would like to return to sometime, as there is so much to see in this area. Sadly we have to move on, as we are starting the North Coast 500 tour on Wednesday and need to get up to Inverness where this trip starts.Read more

    Day 4

    August 26, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Only 16 miles today! And a gorgeous road from Wooler to Tweed mouth, but slight slower than usual as Judith came with us to see Eleanor for the day.
    We took a picnic with us, and Eleanor and John took us took us to an amazing spot on the river Whiteadder for a swim and to jump in off the rocks. Near the rocks the water was so deep we never managed to touch the bottom.

    Judith headed home after we had finished our lunch and the rest of us went on to Chain Bridge Honey Farm so Jamie could visit Scotland for the first time, and we could have a cup of tea.

    We had a good walk around the town walls of Berwick, all the way down to the lighthouse and then stopped in a cute little bar for a quick pint before dinner.
