Beijing Biddies – the first few days!
Day1. Exciting departure day for the BBs in Cumbria and lots of media interest (you can see the ITV coverage here) in Beijing Biddies charity challenge. After several hiccups with BB2 and vehicle, on to Yorkshire and at Garrowby Hall – home of Lord and Lady Halifax. It was the birthday of BB 1 – Edwina so the BBs felt obliged to have a few drinks in the bar on board the ferry. BB1 then had to help BB2 up the stairs to the restaurant due to the rolling boat!
Day 2 BBs were the centre of attention on disembarking particularly with the male fraternity as they all homed in to our vehicle. Then long hard driving day through and in to Germany. Concentration levels had to remain high due to the speeding German drivers. Temporarily lost our camera men but all well in the end.
Day 3 Warsaw – Here we come watch this space!
