Chatting to another driver. The last day had started, and with a fully charged battery I checked out and continued on my way. The route was standard upto Mulhouse, although I did leave the Autoroute to go shopping at Belfort. At Belfort I didn’t connect to the charger as I was still at 60 %… Continue reading Day 27. The journey ends.
Day 26. Beaune again.
Heading back, again. It was time for me to head back to home. Chantal is staying with her father for a few months, so now I was traveling solo. I chose a totally different route to that I usually take to return to Beaune. This time I headed south of Tours over Vierzon and the… Continue reading Day 26. Beaune again.
Days 23 to 25. Relaxing.
Lazy days. Days 23 to 25 were lazy days staying with family. Apart from driving to the car wash and shopping we didn’t go anywhere, which must be said was a good change. Not that were were not busy. At the house there is so much that needs to be sorted out. Years of “stuff”… Continue reading Days 23 to 25. Relaxing.
Day 22, Back to the pond
Last day of this stage. Today we will return to Chantal’s Fathers home where I will spend a few days, and Chantal will remain for a few months. The journeys end is near and that is always a day I don’t like. After leaving Boulogne we took the departmental roads for a while before going… Continue reading Day 22, Back to the pond
Day 21, Its not Holland
But we were in Holland After spending a very enjoyable evening in Utrecht, a town to revisit, we headed west towards France. I hate driving in or around Paris, so we decided to head towards Calais, but first we had to cross The Netherlands and Belgium. Our route took us past Rotterdam, which does not… Continue reading Day 21, Its not Holland
Day 20. Frisia.
Black and white Cows. The night in the hotel was not very good, my mattress having about as much support as a sheet of paper. I wanted to avoid driving through or around Hamburg. Unfortunately, Hamburg has the first road crossing over the river Elbe, and it always very busy. So after checking the map,… Continue reading Day 20. Frisia.
Day 19, Denmark
In search of piggies. Today we left Stockholm and made our way over to the east coast of Denmark, the land of bacon and lots more. We looked a lot but didn’t see a single piggy. We saw loads of cows, and so many sheep. On reaching the east coast we followed it south and… Continue reading Day 19, Denmark
Day 18, Off to Malmö
Metallica accident. The road out of Stockholm was quiet busy. Again we were more or less forced onto the motorway, and had little chance to see much. However, we left it after an hour or two and went a bit across country and down the side of a very long lake. There were a few… Continue reading Day 18, Off to Malmö
Day 17, Stockholm
It will be nice when it is finished. Spent the day walking around the old row. Of Stockholm. It’s a nice place with lot and lots of roadworks and building site. We had temperatures up to 28c today.
Day 16, Off to Stockholm
Danger of turning lobster! Today just a short drive of 100km through the countyside. Stopped at a couple of lakes, nothing exciting, and a quaint protected village. We arrived in Stockholm around 3pm so we could check in as soon as possible. The area around d the hotel was full of roadworks, and no where… Continue reading Day 16, Off to Stockholm
