One of the joys of writing your own blog is that you are free to express your thoughts (within reason and decency) after trawling through a plethora of websites and numerous pages. Which is why I like to read the travel section of some of the “main stream” sources – eg some of the mainline news publications (I quote frequently from the Singapore Straits time being Singaporean) both local and international.
The UK Telegraph has to be one of my favourites which I come back time and again. I feel so motivated again to plan for these trips after reading the article.
We have long been fancy to road trips. During the 3 years we lived in Holland, we drove all across France, Germany, northern Italy, the Benelux and the UK of course! A road is a wonderful way of taking the time to soak in the places you want to stay longer and moving on when no longer motivated. Better photos are taken too when you have time on your hands.
The longest and most memorable was our 18-day drive all along the “fringes” of France during the early summer. It was a time of relocation for us and July of 2005 was our move home. Taking “flight” from Amsterdam, our road trip proper commenced from the time we crossed into the northeast Picardie region of France.
Well, together with the other road trips made (eg to Champagne, Alsace etc), the bucket list has Cote D’Azur, the Pyrenees and Central Massif remaining as untouched by our flag.
Very soon some day we will be doing the same all over the UK, starting with the southwest.
