My overland trip to Greece is now under way with the first leg – the first 300 miles – done.
After a 7 hour drive from Fairford on Friday night, I arrived savely in Bruges a few minutes before midnight local time (23:00 UK time).
It’s arrived! The time has come for my visit to the German capital, Berlin. As I write, I am sitting in a hotel room near London’s Gatwick Airport, having eaten in the hotel’s restaurant following the drive down from Fairford.
I’ve had a car of my own for about 2 months now. It’s quite nice not having to use public transport everywhere I go. I can take whichever route I want to wherever I want.
I’m writing this evening a few hours after returning home from family parties/gatherings for the second time in a week.
