Free wi-fi has been very lacking since we crossed in the Netherlands (very few McDonalds!) and when I tried to buy a Dutch SIM card for my wi-fi dongle I got told a load of old rubbish by the salesman, so declined to purchase!
So, a bit of an update on where we've been and what we've been doing. It feels like we've mostly been getting rained on!
I'd do a couple of postings with the most interesting bits and hopefully get the blog up to date!
We crossed the Schelde from Termeuzen to Vlissingen back on 5 July. Stephen did a really great job of plotting the route and getting us across without incident or seasickness! The Schelde is a really major shipping route and there are some massive ships on it, like the Maerske Singapore, below.
