The good news was that despite having 25,000 miles under her belt, the van came back with no issues! Bearing in mind that we have lived in her for 12 months, I was very pleased with the ‘clean bill of health’.
We spent just over 3 weeks on holiday in the UK visiting family and friends and renewing insurances etc., before departing for the next 12-month European leg recently.
Bound for Sweden and the Scandinavian countries, we travelled through Belgium and into the Netherlands to meet up with two fellow Bailey Owners Club members, Angie and Tony Ancliffe.
Owners of a very smart Unicorn Vigo, it was fantastic to spend a few nights catching up on all the news (we had just missed a BOC rally, which I’m told, was well attended with beautiful weather).
One of the benefits of joining the Bailey Owners Club is that you can get great holidays both home and abroad, normally cheaper than the brochure price and (an added bonus) meet people with similar interests.
Following our few days’ rest, it was time to head for Flensburg on the German/Danish border – an ideal spot to stock up on essential supplies including alcohol as Denmark (along with all Scandinavian countries) is notoriously expensive. After a good night’s rest at the Citte shopping park’s free aire, it was time to head for Copenhagen and eventually Malmo in Sweden.
We opted to go all the way by road rather than the other option of the ferry. Part of this decision was so we could go over the Little Belt Bridge to Copenhagen and then the impressive 5-mile Oresund Bridge that took us to Malmo in Sweden.
