Ull & Umber

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.

I know a very different Hull. Sailed there in November '06 (well, maybe we motored more than sailed) and spent two days happily wandering around it's historic district...home of William Wilberforce and such...before sailing/motoring back to Gosport. It's all what you get to see, I suppose.
