Next morning we caught the bus back to Chepstow and had a hearty breakfast and I also had a pint of Doombar bitter for only 2 pounds six pence. You would pay 5 Euros fifty at least for a pint here in Ireland. Good old Wetherspoon's yet again!
We caught the train to Gloucester and had to wait for a bus to take us to our next destination due to essential bridge repairs.
The bus eventually arrived and we caught the bus to Stroud. My feet were killing me and blisters had popped on the soles. I was walking very slowly, in a lot of pain and very tired having little sleep for the last few days. I needed much needed rest but there was no chance of that.
We decided to find a Premier Inn and book a room for the night. After many wrong directions we eventually found the Reception. A young lady with blonde hair looking at a computer monitor said that they only took card payments, you had to book online and the room would be 190 Pounds for one night.
Talk about day light robbery and a cashless society? Only last week in Ireland a court awarded a family 500 Euros each from an hotel because they refused to let them pay cash. True story. I told her it had cost me a lot of money to get here from Ireland. She tried not to laugh and we exited the building
We walked out the door and looked for a campsite we had seen advertised online with basic facilities and compost toilets. Google Maps sent us walking along the road to Bristol. We eventually walked back to town and a very kind man in a Tourist Information office drew monius a arrow to follow on a guide of the town.
We walked 3 miles uphill and found the campsite. It was picturesque looking over the Gloucester countryside and old houses and a church. The campsite owner was really friendly and said the land and his house dated back to the English Civil War. His house and landowners support the Cromwell side.
We booked the campsite for two nights and he only charged us ten Pounds each per night. It was so peaceful and full of wildlife.
Tomorrow I will tell and show you some photos about visiting Slad and Seeing John Cale in Concert. Hope you're enjoying my road trip?
