Today we start our epic adventure.
It's sort of a Planes, Trains and Automobiles adventure but with a boat and without the planes.
I'm apprehensive. Do you get nervous before a holiday?
Have we got all of the tickets and documentation?
There is one thing that could go wrong. Dave's car has a chip in the windscreen. If it were my car it would have been sorted within the week but Dave's been driving around with this for months, and I only found out a few days ago.
Calling Autoglass in the UK is nice and easy and simple. Fixing a windscreen in Italy when the train journey has rattled the windscreen into smithereens, will not be as simple. Dave says it will be fine. I am not as confident.
I could have insisted he fix it or I could have said "If he thinks it'll be OK, then I'll trust him." It was tough call but I'm going with trust.
