The Isle of Wight

Yesterday, very early yesterday, we took our last family holday this year to the Isle of Wight. Well, I say holiday, but it was actually a day trip thanks to a burning need to sleep in our own good bed.
When I can get a hotel room with a memory foam bed things might change, but until then we're taking day trips.
We plan carefully and manage to fit a weeks worth of holiday into 24 hours.

Starting at 1.30am we got the in the car and drove steadily down from Stoke to Southampton. Over 214 miles each way. I spent the last two weeks fixing the car and we saw good results. The whole trip cost 40 pounds in petrol. Total trip distance was 450 miles.

We were on the early ferry at 6am and arrived just after 7am. We drove from the ferry terminal to a town called Sandown.
We played crazy golf, enjoyed the sandy beach, visited the zoo and then a roman villa. Finally, very tired, we made for home and got back without incident after 2am. So...erm over 25 hours without sleep. Fun fun fun, but I wouldn't recommend it without the regular rest stops we took.....and all the energy drinks.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

You're a braver man than me, I would NOT be able to function after that long without sleep. Especially wouldn't be able to drive 200 miles home!

Smithy.....thanks mate. I have to say I don't make a practice of staying awake that long. It's something I can't do unless I'm having fun.
