Although the convoy starts in Holland, where several of those coming to Poland are meeting on Monday 28th July, several of us will be on the continent prior to this.

One van is travelling via Norfolk Line on Sunday 27th to Dunkerque, arriving at 18:45 (local time). They are happy to wait, or meet people in Dunkerque and travel with them to meet with us in an Aire in Belguim for an overnight stop on Sunday, prior to an hours drive to Oesebos on Monday morning.

Another van will be in Paris over the weekend of 26/27th July for the final stage of the Tour De France on the Sunday, then meeting up in Belguim on Sunday evening.

If either of these arrangements assist more in signing up, you're more than welcome to join us.

To assist others who may be concerned about finding their way around Europe, especially coming home, we have a Sat Nav they can borrow for their trip. Just return it to us after you get home!!

Come on Bongoliers, join us for a memorable trip.

You may even get to swap or obtain some bling off the Russians :) :)
Do Russians do bling?? Don't tell him Pike..

If you are making a firm booking this week, Bongo Towers will be shut from Thursday lunch time as we are off to the McBongo Bash :D

In a bongo its not difficult. You can see over all those continental cars.

We agree with the last posts and call for all 'crumblies' to come to my birthday in Sczezin (I've spelt it wrong). :(

Not a difficult trip - great fun. We are going via Holland, Germany, Denmark. Norway and Sweden. :D

I'd really love to, but other than the cost, I've got to be around for my Dad ( who's not very well) for the next few months, definitely interested in future missions though :D Very jealous of you guys that are going :mrgreen:
