Its our turn
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:52:07 AM »
So as the title says "its our turn" its something I never thought I would do but on the 15th of October my wife and I will be (oh and the dog) getting in our car and heading off to Newcastle to get the overnight ferry to Amsterdam then onward to Calis. Due to unforeseen circumstances some good and some bad it has given me the opportunity while I am still relatively young (54) to give it a go, its all happened really quickly and its most likely the only chance we would get but who cares life's short  :D

Ah Serbia. The last time I went through there I almost got a free prostate examination at the border. They checked the vehicle and trailer inside and out, including X-raying them. Took my passport away for inspection. Strip searched and X-rayed me. Finally let me go after about an hour and a half.

When I asked one of the border guards why they had paid me and the vehicle so much attention he just replied 'It was your turn'.

Be wary of people offering to 'look after' your vehicle or 'wash the windscreen' at small service areas when travelling through Hungary, Serbia and Bulgaria.

Great stuff, it's a good time to arrive, as you'll be able to get everything sorted out this end in cooler weather & minimal distractions   :)

Good luck with the drive over
