Hey Chilli, you forgot to post a picture of Jose!
Why do I give people the impression of being obsessed by VWs??
We actually drove to Manchester in Karen's car rather than the camper. A 5 hour drive in her car would be more like a 7 hour drive in Jose.....and would probably cost more in fuel as well. As we only had 4 days including travelling time, we wanted to have as much time actually with my sister as possible - rather than chugging along in the camper.
Mind you, I would have prefered driving Jose - no stress about changing lanes on the motorway.....because that's sooooooo unlikely!
When you have a car that can go over 55 mph easily, you tend to end up going faster and being in the middle or outside lane. Too stressful for me - take away the ability to go fast and you just chill in the inside lane
In case you really wanted a pic of Jose
here's one taken at Dubs at the Park 2011
