Today, after a little bit of Scottish city sightseeing, I made it back to England and after a drive of 238 miles I’ve arrived in Preston, Lancashire, to grab a few hours rest before I drive to work.

Back on the Mainland

Icon Written by Fred Hart on September 1, 2019 – 10:08

The best part of 120 miles without much in the way of traffic and I did the whole journey from Strathpeffer to Perth without stopping. Would have been quite a scenic drive had it not been dark…

Scenic Drive Through Harris & Lewis

This morning I am in my final Hebridean destination before I return to the mainland and start driving back down South. Yesterday after a 135 mile drive and a ferry journey I reached Stornoway.

Mixed Weather, Mixed Traffic

My first full day in Germany started with the realisation that I am more than half way to Itzehoe. Approx 500 miles down – just over 400 to go.

Just One Big International Traffic Jam

Icon Written by Fred Hart on May 23, 2018 – 21:50

German holiday traffic all the way from De Panne, countless lorries, the first traffic jam was before I even made it to the motorway!

Safely Over the Channel

Tuesday was one of those days on the motorway where one minute you’re doing 70, the next you’re down to 20. Stupid M25!

Dashcam – M4 junction 1 to Central London (Oxford Street Car Park)

Icon Written by Fred Hart on April 24, 2018 – 19:13

On Saturday I drove in to, and parked in, Central London (W1). It worked out cheaper than going on public transport, and saved having to negotiate the tube on a busy, Sunny Saturday afternoon.

Planning My Next European Road Trip

Icon Written by Fred Hart on April 8, 2018 – 22:41

I normally find that by mid-late May the weather in Germany is warm and Sunny – perhaps the odd thunderstorm. I was lucky last year to get temperatures of 30°c down in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. This year I won’t be that far South so I don’t think I’ll get quite that! But I hope that, in travelling the last weekend in May, I will get some decent weather.
