Another long flight via Singapore behind us, we are through customs and immigration in record time thanks to Australians now being able use the biometric passport system at Heathrow. What took nearly 2 hours last year, today we were through in 30 minutes.
Our driver Paul is waiting at the gate and 90 minutes later we arrive in Bosham to be re-united with the Hymer. We are soon unpacking and re-packing, the fridge is started, water tank filled and the hot water heater is fired up.
We lunch with Terry and Lelia at the Berkeley Arms, catching up on each other’s family news and travel plans. We point the Hymer at the gate and our next adventure gets underway in earnest. As usual we have a couple of maintenance issues to sort, the first being the alarm system. A company in Taunton specialise in motorhome alarms and I have the Hymer booked in tomorrow. They also run a motorhome campsite adjoining the workshop, it’s free if your a client.

Next morning we take the Hymer over to the workshop, discuss our options. It was a bit like going to Maccas, lots of up-selling. Anyway we came to an arrangement and they offered us a lift into Taunton for some sightseeing.
As a light drizzle sets in we retreat from the church to the pub next door for lunch.
After a long lunch of beef and ale pie and a couple of pints, we opt for the bus and make our way back to the Hymer.
