    I can go all over Europe and get Wifi and fast 4g.

    Come home to Scotland and what is there....fuck all. Router stopped working while I was away and insufficient g's to use the phone. Pathetic. Fucking 3rd world country up here.

    You'll need to wait to hear about our shoddy treatment by DFDS and my appointment and discussion with the Chief Officer of the Princess Seaways.

    Walter Scott didnae need 4G! Man the feck up!

    Oh Caledonia, stern and wild,
    Meet nurse for a poetic child!
    Land of brown heath and shaggy wood,
    Land of the mountain and the flood,
    Land of my sires! What mortal hand
    Can e'er untie the filial band
    That knits me to thy rugged strand?
    Still as I view each well-known scene,
    Think what is now, and what hath been,
    Seems as, to me, of all bereft,
    Sole friends, thy woods and streams were left;
    And thus I love them better still,
    Even in extremity of ill.
    By Yarrow's stream still let me stray,
    Though none should guide my feeble way;
    Still feel the breeze down Ettrick break
    Although it chill my withered cheek;
    Though there, forgotten and alone,
    The bard may draw his parting groan

    (Copied and.pasted via 4g!)
    Start every day with a smile ... Get it over with!

    If you want to take Scotland back to the 17/1800's that's fine....I'd prefer it if I can get the same service from modern technology here as I can in the rest of Europe.

    Any how....

    Our final night was in this quirky but fun place at Mettmann....excellent grub and terrific breakfast. Ideally situated to stop over on the way to the ferry...just under 3 hr run to Ijmuiden. I'd prefer being early at the ferry to panicking if the very busy motorway system in this area of Germany and Holland falls over....and it can.

    So a lunch in the restaurant at the end of the harbour.....excellent fish, and then round to check in.

    We joined the end of a fairly large gaggle of bikers and waited our turn, eventually up into the bowels of the ship.
    They crammed in far too many bikes far too closely. So tight that there wasn't room to squeeze between the panniers of adjoing bikes in many cases. In their efforts to get as many bikes as possible, we were put where ther were no tie down wires or cables to properly anchor the bikes.

    They should have reduced the number of bikes across by one, and ensured there were adequate tie down points....there was a cable to the rear of my bike, but to the left, the only hook was just by the front wheel.
