Gotta love the French and Spandiards

Its looking like the toughest part of our journey might be the mad dash across Europe. Those pesky Europeans are doing what they do best and kicking up a fuss

Spanish hauliers began an indefinite strike

Main routes to France through Catalonia and the Basque country were blocked, with reports that lorries crossing picket lines were stoned and their windscreens smashed.

Jérôme Cordier of Unostra, the French union of small and medium haulage companies, said yesterday’s protests marked a new phase to coordinate strikes across Europe for maximum impact, a development that could threaten widespread disruption during the holiday season

Perhaps it mgith just give us a chance to try out the bull bars on the fiesta early. 

In other news, Africa is looking remarkably quiet at the moment, just as long as they stay that way for a couple of months.
