We finally received our International Driving Permits from the RAC on Friday, after finding out that our original applications were “lost” in the post, or system or some other imaginary place that exists only on the minds of the RAC. So it was agreed that if we scanned the documents and emailed them, they would process the IDP’s straight away. True to their words they were delivered the next day.
Once we checked them, it was straight on to the web and booked a ferry to France. So yup, we are off tomorrow, Monday 23rd March 2015!
It still seems a bit surreal, that after all this planning we are finally setting off for Africa.
While talking about planning, we still don’t have a route sorted out, even down to whether or not we go Right or Left out of Calais! But this is the essence of the Lorrywaydown, it’s all a very loose plan.
