Who would have thought they would change the name “Waldo” to “Wally” for the benefit of the Brits? I thought he was a true American icon all dressed in red and white stripes. Wrong-o!

The things to search for are a little different, too, kicking a football through a caravan translates as a  soccer ball kicked through a tow-behind camper/RV (see photo below). Caravans are quite popular for camping here, but again, my concept of the word cozy keeps shrinking. I understand that they can’t be much bigger than the cars that tow them or they would wipe out all oncoming traffic on the country roads, but in all honesty, most of the ones I’ve seen would fit inside our tent. Granted we can have six boys sleep in our tent, but the smaller scale of everything here never ceases to amaze me.
