It's the end of the month (what? already?) - and of course that means it's time for a Month in Numbers, with our Numero Uno Julie Kirk.
Some months, the numbers I want to remember lodge themselves easily in my brain. other months, I'm not sure what to count because mostly, to be honest, I retain colours and textures and words better than numbers. That's why I find the challenge of this so enjoyable!
But for Jluy I knew exactly what to count:
How far we travelled.
We drove 450 miles to Southampton. And then we sailed
- 216 nautical miles to Zeebrugge
- another 707 nautical miles to Copenhagen
- another 20 to Helsingborg
and then 254 to Oslo
with a further 765 nautical miles back to our starting point. But that wasn't our trip finished! Oh, no. We then took in
- 5 university towns
- in 2 countries
travelling a further 1000 miles by car until we reached home.

The nautical miles slipped by easily (no, I didn't count the number of times we went to the buffet..). The miles in the car?
We did our best. I haven't decided yet whether to go ahead with a layout called "Contentious Car Music". But if I do, you'll be the first to know..
