Christmas and New Year

Happy New Year everyone!
Nought as happened really. Poor Irene has been parked up and not been used due to various reasons, too cold for Daisy and besides, we haven't been anywhere!

She had a good service, all bits and bobs checked, we just have to sort out a few wee paint blemishes on her so she is sparkly for the summer, although, Denni will be taking her to North Wales at the start of Feb so he can get in some hill time and ice climbing, good times :0)

Last one of the trip.....

Treat for the poorly girl in hospital in Portsmouth

Align Left
Salzburg was beautiful!!! Unfortunately Daisy became quite feverish when she should have been shaking her off her cold. We took her to hospital in Salzburg where the health care was impeccable. She developed a swelling on her face which they thought was mumps and did some tests. We returned the following day for further blood tests. The Doc said she was on the mend and we could probably continue but we had already decided to come home. We left last Thursday and arrived in Portsmouth Friday morning. She has been in hospital since Friday night and is having IV antibiotics for an infected lymph gland (happens spontaneously sometimes after a cold). She is still smiling and is quite chipper in herself.
We had a brilliant time and will continue the trip one this space!
Thanks for following xxxx

Loving Vienna. Daisy is getting over her cold and is cheering up. She was belly lauging loads tonight when I was tickling her. We have had a lazy Sunday with a late morning snooze, nice walk and food. Daisy also has her appetite back. Last day tomorrow before we are off to Saltzburg Tuesday. Oh, and the yeti beard has gone!


Keep the comments coming x

Good old Mozart

Gruss Gott aus Wien.

Hi folks, in Vienna now, apartment, cheaper all in than the campsite and 20 mins from the town centre.
Had a walk into town today, fesh but nice and sunny. Daisy seems to be getting over her cold we think, well she is certainly better. More city stuff tomorrow, then maybe head out on a tour of something or other. Heaps to see in Vienna, 5 days wouldn't be enough but recommended to you all for a wee break!
Anyway, just a quick post. Will catch up with you all again soon.
Love us xx

Innsbruck Photos


Photo 1- Daisy the happy hippy. We took the belt off her trousers then just as Denni put it away we both had the same thought of the ninja headband. Does that make us cruel parents?

2- Us with colds

3- Daisy standing up in her car seat, having a stetch.

4- On the road with toy socks to entertain her

Hiyee our nearest and dearest, the blog folllowers!

We have just arrived in Vienna (Aaaaaaaaaaah, Vienna). Check out our gaff-

Net access at the last couple of stops rubbish so a few phots to catch up on. Who would have thunk it in this day and age!!!

Innsbruck was lovely, quite chilly, very green and lush and you could see the snowy topped mountains from the campsite! The cows actually did have bells on too. We all have had colds and Daisy has a special massive spot with hers for extra sympathy.

Irene and Daisy continue to attract alot of attention and generate lots of chats with strangers which is fab.We were let off a toll fee in Italy as the guy in the booth was so excited about the bus! Woo!

Computer misbehaving so will add phots tomorrow.

Biyeeeeeee! Miss you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Just to let you know what we have been up to this week....

Greetings blog followers,

Well, since the last blog posting, we have been to Lake Garda and stayed at the La Rocca campsite which is halfway between Bardolino and Garda town, and it is fab! Great location at the edge of the lake, a lot of people about but you don’t feel too overwhelmed with it. A short lakeside walk to both Bardolino or Garda and 4 nights here costs a measly £65 (ish), bargain. Highly recommended to you all for a holiday.

Weather was 28- 32 degrees. Went into Garda and Bardolina on Wednesday for a womble and it was nice and warm at night for Daisy. We sat and had a brew/ Soave at the lakeside and people watched; some good mullets and glam about. We saw another bay window parked up, so have posted a pic (haven‘t seen that many since starting the trip). Anna did her bit for the budget by drinking lots of Soave as it was the local veno and cheaper than coke!

We have started buying cheesy stickers which are currently all going onto our mobile coolbox, looks well chavvy so far. Will post a pic as it becomes more chavmeister. (Denni gets very excited about the stickers!).

Went to Sermione on Thursday, a lake side village on the south side, very hot and touristy but again very nice. Then we went to Verona on Friday and had a wee look round, lovely place. Honestly, It’s a hectic life!

We then drove up through Northern Italy on Saturday, up through the wine/castle regions and then through part of the Dolomite mountain range, through the Stubai Alps and we are now sat in a wee holiday flat at the Natterersee campsite just outside Innsbruck. We did hire a holiday caravan on Saturday night, but it is quite cold here and Daisy has a cold and the caravan is really only built for summer use so we traded up for the apartment. They had snow here last week and it went down to about minus 2 already and will only get colder. Bit overcast which was a shame as we are surrounded by the Stubai Alps, just can’t see them!

Will try and post more video’s of Daisy as it is a better representation of her being feisty/happy/grumpy/chunky//cute/tired (or all of those at the same time) than a photo. She has been enjoying herself, coping well with the heat and generally being on the move most of the time, she is just a wee bit down in the dumps at the mo and under the weather with a cold.

Anyway, hope all is good with everyone, and will catch up with you all again soon.
Love Den, Anna, Daisy and Irene xx

PS: A wee special hello to Capt Mcstickio. Hope all is good and you’re not too tired/bored/overworked already. J

PPS: We have just arrived in Vienna (Thursday 30th) and will post another catch up with fots from Innsbruck as we have t’internet.
