Since it started to rain a lot in France the decision was made to drive home. It was a very long drive, but nicely broken up by a day in font and an exciting moment in the ferry port, where I made an ‘accidental’ but successful attempt to breach port security.

Excited as I was to be at home the weather forecast was not very inspiring, so we spent only a few days in Bristol before booking flights to Morocco!

In those few days, apart from battling with Mr Taxman at HMRC, I had a day of UK tradding, which was strangely my first since doing ‘Once Upon a time in the Southwest’ in June and Alex’s first time using the infamous ‘double rope technique’.

Whilst I was on the phone to Mr HMRC Alex climbed with Dave at Cheddar in the rain, a crag that he deemed to be ‘the most disgusting cliff he’d ever seen’ and Swanage which he quite liked. Off to Morocco then…
