So the journey begins. Setting of to Hull from Salford, Lancashire the first leg of the journey is relatively easy - a 90 mile drive to the Port of Hull to board the Pride of Rotterdam Ferry.

Once on board I had 14 hours to relax and enjoy the scenery!

And for those who know me all too well I did manage to get in a little crochet action to pass the time..(6.10.09)
Then an overnight sail across the North Sea into the Port of Rotterdam gets me safely onto the continent.
Good morning Rotterdam! (7.10.09)

A little weary and tired I set of driving again - 219 miles through The Netherlands and over into Germany straight to Bielefeld, my new home for the next three months.

As each week passes by I will continue to share with you my experiences of living and making new art works at Artists Unlimited.
