Wilfried, if you are rash enough not to take Andreas' sound advice, a poor second would be shinning up the mooring ropes of the Pride of Rotterdam.

Flying is a cheap option, but sadly the nearest airport that offers runway space to budget airlines is Leeds/Bradford, and you will then be involved with expensive and time consuming rail journeys. We do have a perfectly suitable international airport on our doorstep, at Kirmington (Humberside Airport), but only sheiks and lottery winners are able to afford to use it.

I would suggest booking P&O Ferries out of Rotterdam Europoort, as a foot passenger, on the night of Thursday 29th April 2004, disembarking in Hull on the morning of Friday 30th April, spend the day probing the soft underbelly of Hull, after which I will collect you and drive you over the water to Barrow. Likewise, I will return you to the ferry terminal in Hull to catch the evening boat on Monday 3rd May. Change any of the dates above to suit your itinerary (i.e. I can have one of my people meet the Saturday morning boat, and/or deliver you back on Sunday night)

Andy and Wilfried, we should be able to run to floorspace for both of you, so consider yourselves housed, however Spartan the truckle

So that's sorted.
