Road Trip!

The Centus this week is all about travel. As usual we have been given a prompt by Jenny Matlock & we have 100 words to create an interesting piece of writing. The prompt is in blue


It was never going to work.

Things had gone wrong from the start – the rush for the passports which were long out of date, the scrabble for driving licences, checking all those visas & documents giving permission to go.

‘Sorry, what did you say?’

‘What did that road sign say?’

‘Exit 181, ½ mile ahead….’

‘What! We’re supposed to be at the beginning not the end!’
