Arrived in Europe a week ago today. After some final preparations for the drive from UK to Italy, we pulled out of Liverpool Wednesday afternoon. Instead of the usual Dover-Calais ferry, this time it was a more relaxed (but expensive) trip from Hull to Zeebrugge, Netherlands. It's an overnight ferry with bad food and cheesy night club shows. It was fun ;-) Only two hours of driving across UK and a nice easy 12 hour ferry trip, most of which was spent sleeping.
Hull isn't a particularly nice city....very industrial, makes me think of Oakland, California. Much more interesting sky in Hull though.
