United Kingdom 2011 Freelander 2 SD4 HSE Auto Firenze Red
2017 Holiday 1

First towing holiday of the year. Only a 600kg trailer tent so hardly noticeable and minimal difference on mpg figures. Hardest part was remembering not to go in lane 3 of M5 and also watch the speed limit.

Stayed at Mill Park near Ilfracombe but wont bother again ! LR Freelander 2 2011 facelift HSE SD4 auto in Firenze Red + Premium pack & cold weather pack (affectionately known as Eve).
Vauxhall Astra 67 plate
Subaru Impreza 2008 (Sold 2016)
Vauxhall Adam 1.4 Glam 2015 (sold 2017) (affectionately known as Adam)

Nice list Iain.

I'm just starting on my 2018 itinerary & Kenya is pencilled in for November but before then will be as many trips towing the trailer tent as my works holidays will allow. Cant wait until I retire ! LR Freelander 2 2011 facelift HSE SD4 auto in Firenze Red + Premium pack & cold weather pack (affectionately known as Eve).

Holiday 3 2018
Bardolino. Italy

Lovely place to visit. If you get a chance, get the ferry to Sirmione, I think it’s only one stop. We’ve been to Sirmione 3 times now, always stay at the hotel Eden right by the ferry stop and we always fit in a trip to Bardolino. Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto
Present: Evoque SD4 Dynamic Lux Auto

thanks Steve, we've been to Bardolino before and love it.

think we've visited Sirmione before and I bought a leather bag, which I just couldn't resist Very Happy

looking forward to seeing it again.

ps just checked the map and I bought the bag in Limone, which was a short ferry trip from Malcesine, but we did take the ferry to Sirmione one day, remember the ice cream shops !!

The massed tourists only go to the Fairy Pools and a couple of other spots. Plenty of nice quiet bits left for the locals...

Not aware of a Kit Cobra living on Skye - but a lot of tucked-away farmsteads may house interesting pieces of auto history. There's barn-finds to be found here I suspect. Currently enjoying:

Limone is very nice too - right up the other end of the lake. We drove round there as the ferry from Sirmione was about 3 hours. For some reason, I always get the wife and her mates to pose outside this shop in Sirmione. Laughing

Well as my title states i am now well and truly lost thanks to the good lady,

Option 1 ferry to Rotterdam and go east to Slovakia she suggests
Option 2 ferry to Santander so Spain,Andorra,Pyrenees and coastal drive through France to Calais
Option 3 ferry to Rotterdam and go north to Sweden and possibly Norway

I am still determined to get to Scotland this year, well at least once Rolling Eyes
