No - Libby is as strong as an Ox and they have wheels on anyway.

neither do I require any help in getting down the wine and spirits.

But it is very kind of you to offer. 2017 will be our last splurge on regular holidays - the travel insurance is already crippling but I am 80 next month and Libby will soon be 75 and the cost of insurance with our menu of ailments will kill it off.

It will be more of the UK in future - which will cost less in petrol after next month when my new hybrid KIA Niro arrives. I have followed the ship it is on from Korea, to China then across the pacific and through the Panama Canal to a port in Venezuela which it departed bound for Brunswick USA where it will arrive on 15th Feb. It will drop off more cars there and collect others before making for Bristol UK where it is scheduled to arrive on 25/26 February.

The Marine tracking website is fascinating - it's amazing what it tracks and the info on each ship.

My ship the TORTUGAS is a dedicated car carrier and can carry 6,500 cars. It left Korea on 31st December loaded with approx. 6,300 KIA cars bound for China, South and North America the UK and then Germany where it will load up with VW, BMW and Mercedes cars for the USA and far east on the return trip to Korea.
