It took a while but the insurance was arranged; customs, MOTs and the DVLA could wait. We left Dover at 5pm and drove the short four hour hop through the grey drizzle that enveloped southern England and arrived in Devon at Laura’s home at a quarter past nine on a still light evening. Balloons lined the way to a huge banner on which lay a map of Africa and our red line home; in front of the banner stood the Family Somers, Mum, Dad, Ben, Vix, Meg, Flo and Millie, all with smiles on faces and champagne in hand. We had arrived, it felt great to be back.
