UK to Malta 2014

Postby lancepar » 26 Jun 2014, 18:35

Trip starts 1st July, the day I after retire from work :| Dover to Dunkirk into Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy, Sicily then Malta and back, approx. 4,000 miles.
Wives won't come because it will be 'oooh scorchio' (was originally going to be our spring or autumn)
I'm just tagging along with a mate (another OAP) on his triumph who will be fulfilling his pledge to visiting the peeps he has meet at the IOM TT over the past umpty-two years and live on route.
No rush, 3 weeks to play with, staying with his friends where we have been invited to.

Wish us bon voyage.

There are lots of things I am hoping to record/do like piccy's, fuel used, ferry's used, costs, sites visited (one rally) etc.
Never posted messages whilst travelling before, will need to find out how :idea: .

Take a look at Tapatalk. Assuming you have a smartphone, that's by far the easiest way.
