Crapmas in La La Land

115 miles, 2 and 3/4 hours, 1 cup of black coffee and half a bag of aniseed balls (mostly eaten by Izzy) and here I am in London – Crystal Palace to be exact. I have 17 nights here to get me through the dreaded festive season. Yes it’s a crazy place to be and a bloody awful journey – M1 a breeze, 16 miles through central London at a snail’s pace (horrendous), but I figure I’m better off here than back at Claybrooke where it is guaranteed I would hardly see a soul for the remainder of December and most certainly would feel lonely and cut off. So I may as well be here in the midst of the city madness with fantastic transport links, loads to do and lovely clean and heated showers and loo’s. It’s costing me £12.94 a night so I’m getting a hell of a lot for that extra £2.94. Shame I can’t stay for ever really. The lovely Assistant Wardens who were here in March have gone which is a shame as they were a blast. I actually followed the Caravan Club’s directions this time so I was spared having to do 3 point turns down roads that narrowed to 6 foot wide. I kind of cheated and followed the motorhome in front of me for most of the journey down the A205. I figured that no one in their right mind drives one of these through London without good reason. Luckily for me he pulled in here or I could have ended up in the Thames (I did assure him that I wasn’t following him in a stalker way) 🙂

About travellingninjas3

Scarlet haired veggie/coeliac/tattooed/charity shop loving rebel sold everything to take to the road with 3 Yorkies in a campervan to discover the meaning of life & blog about it. It all went well for 18 months but then a flippin bloke walked into my life and turned it upside down so now the travelling has come to a halt but I still live in the van but in a field - marvellous :o)
