Where the wild things are

The rest is simple. Channel Tunnel, France, brief flirtation with the Netherlands, speedy run through Germany, overnight in Berlin. Sudden cold-sweat when remembering the danger to others should our roofrack part company at 130mph, but the mobile camping shop above our heads stays limpet-like. Though one has to say, it's pretty destructive to the fuel economy: we read just 18mpg on the blasty bit. Next day and it's an early start, and an introduction to Poland. We hit the border after the glorious unfettered speed of the Autobahn and then nearly hit a lorry as Poland swaps motorway for decrepit A-road.
