Today, Friday November 9th was our first travel day. After a ‘bit of a hiccup’ getting a visa for Paraguay, (which is enough fodder for a blog post similar to the cup of tea story) we drove out of the garage at the London Palace Hotel, Montevideo some time between 2.30-3.00pm.
We’re overnighting just 80km east of Montevideo in a camp ground hosted by a Swiss couple, with about 8 other vehicles from all over the world. We arrived at 4.40-ish ‘Uruguay time’ and were greeted by many well wishers. Hot showers, a pristine Atlantic beach and offers of freshly baked ciabatta in the morning, made to order… a lovely first day out.
After 9 days in Montevideo we’re very pleased to be on the road and out of the city, lovely as it was.
That sounds great
Now the adventure begins
Hi there Ailsa & Stewart .i am very excited to see you are now having an opportunity to move forward. Beth called in this morning ( Saturday) on arrival from Roxby. No doubt you know the details.

Hoping to have good Testra reception and not mis your posts. It was very pleasing to know that everything worked out car wise. Safe travelling you two love mumxxx
Freshly baked ciabatta in the morning for Stewart on his birthday. Very nice. Hope the rest of the day was a winner.
