Woke up this morning to the sound of rain drops on the tent, I love that sound when you are all cosy in your sleeping bag, apart from when you have to get out to go to the toilet....
The previous night I had met Per a doctor from Sweden who was camping next to me and we got chatting as you do when camping and we found we had so much in common. Similar age and outlook on life.
So whilst having breakfast, meat pastie and a Danish.. yummmy and as it was chucking it down and I needed some supplies, he offered o give me a lift in his car.
We went to he supermarket and I found "rolling tobacco" and then we went off tto the old town where the American Car show was setting up, some very cool cars and bikes, shame about the weather with all that shiny chrome.
After a spot of lunch at a very cool Pizza restuarant we went and played 10 pin bowling. Now I haven't been bowling for years and it showed, several misses and a penalty for crossing the line (what is it with me and crossing lines?, I must have an addiction...)
Needless to say I lost all 3 games but I am sure Per threw a few "no balls" just to make the score seem closer than it should have been.
When we got back to the campsite it finally stopped raining and it was time to chill.
I am convinced that sometimes in life the road that you thought you were taking turns out to be a totally different one to the one you planned..
Take mine for example, I was going to Mongolia, researched and planned it all but then it all changed.
At first I was upset and felt that I had failed but then, I would never had met Marrianna and her family and friend and Per.. I think everyone should take a long road trip at least once in their lives...
Well the sun is shining, life is good and I am going to "go with the flow"...
