Visiting the Swedish chef. Today was another long drive, 830Km, from Münster to just north of Malmö in Sweden. We left at 8am, the day started very wet, more like a November day, with ground rain and drizzle, but strangely with 22c, it was very heavy & humid. As the drive progressed the heavens opened… Continue reading Day 5, It stopped raining!
Yes it was stormy. Today is the day we started heading north. At around 8am we left my father-in-law and set of to our overnight stop not far from Münster in Germany. The total distance was circa 860km, so quiet a long day, when taking into account the Paris Périférique, which is one of the… Continue reading Day 4, I hate Paris…
Family time and gravestones. The last time we were in France, my mother-in-law died and we had to bury her. That was 6 months ago, so now its time to arrange the gravestone. I don’t really understand why we couldn’t have arranged that back when she was buried, but that’s how it works in France.… Continue reading Day 3, Calm before the storm?
Beaune to Chateau Du Loir Today was a fairly gentle days trip of only 473Km. We left the hotel about 9:00 and arrived at my father-in-laws at about 15:00. We made 2 short supercharger stops, one at Auxerre and then the second at Blois where we charged to 80%. We charged fairly high at Blois… Continue reading Day 2, 2021 Vacation

Spring is here, and hopefully summer is coming, so its time to remove the winter tyres and put on the summer ones. When I ordered my Model 3, I didn’t order any winter tyres so in October I bought 18″ winter tyres and had them mounted on the standard Aero rims from Tesla. The original… Continue reading The New Aero
After collecting our Model 3 from the ceramic coating company, we named the car Trillian, so rather than saying Model 3 overtime I will say Trillian. Our first trip was to got West France, between Le Mans and Tours where my inlays live. This was a follow on to our trip in June as my… Continue reading First long trip in the Model 3
It’s been a long time since the last update and a lot has happened. However due to the pandemic and lockdown, nothing has also happened…. So where to start ? Back in June we had to goto France in the Ioniq Electric. I detailed the trip a couple of post ago, so I won’t repeat… Continue reading EV Upgrade
We are trying to sell our Ioniq Electric. After our last trip to France, and the issues with CCS charging, we decided we had had enough of looking for a charging place every 150 km or so. So it has to go. In a way I will be sad to see it go. It’s a… Continue reading Time to say goodbye
Due to family illness we need to goto France to sort out some health related issues with my wife mother. The trip has taken a month to arrange after we were told by the social services that we had to go for a meeting, most of that time was to get permissions sorted out. At… Continue reading France trip during Covid-19
