Atlas 2024

April 4, 2024 at 6:39 pm

Wednesday Now in Rabat having crossed to Tangier this morning and planning an evening meander around the city whilst trying to find a working ATM, a local SIM card and supper. Uneventful day with a lot of motorway just to get the miles out of the way. A number of long standing rally friends on More Atlas 2024 →

Ireland 2023

September 17, 2023 at 6:09 pm

September 2023 and, having taken the Porsche to France, it was now for the yellow Elan to take a trip. Our first destination was the Elan Valley, which we failed to visit in 2020. Our journey was marked by heavy rain and thunder storms an the western end of the A14 but we made Rhayader More Ireland 2023 →

Sri Lanka 2023

January 14, 2023 at 11:23 am

We start at Waikkal and go clockwise round the island. Allison’s father served with the RAF at Batticaloa during WW2 and she has been in touch with a very friendly tourist office there and exchanged emails and photos – a deviation from the route so we’ll see if we can trace any connections there. Now More Sri Lanka 2023 →

South by Southwest

September 15, 2020 at 8:10 pm

South by Southwest 2020 was not a good year for Rallies. We had planned to go to China, Tibet and Nepal in April but that got cancelled in late January so we booked a trip to Italy which was also cancelled. Then the Tibet organisers cancelled a 2021 rally to Mongolia and announced they were More South by Southwest →

New Zealand January 2019

January 2, 2019 at 10:52 am

Our first trip in 2019 has started badly – the yellow Elan, making its first trip abroad since Tunisia in 2003 has been delayed in transit and will not arrive until a week after the trip starts. Great! And of course its no-one’s fault, everyone in shipping denies any wrong doing but they gave a More New Zealand January 2019 →

The Atlas Rally 2018

March 22, 2018 at 10:28 pm

8 April to Seville and the end. We left the hotel after a late breakfast for a wander round the town of Ronda (last visited in 2009) before a long Final Rally lunch at a small but noisy cafe just outside the town. I found that I had lost my driving licence to the last More The Atlas Rally 2018 →

Route 66

June 3, 2017 at 3:55 pm

2 November, the day started chilly then it rained – not a good day to visit Newport CA and Balboa! We walked on Balboa Peninsula beach and it gradually stopped raining and got passably warm. Then up Highway 1 to Huntingdon Marina for lunch, a stroll on the beach and then to Los Angeles Airport More Route 66 →

Classic Persia

September 26, 2016 at 8:21 pm

October 21st – tourist day! We took the bus again and really the only times we got off were to change busses or to go on boat trips – and both boats we only made by the skin of our teeth, one had already cast off but as there were only 8 other passengers it More Classic Persia →

Arctic Highway Challenge

June 15, 2016 at 4:02 pm

12 July – we arrive in Travemunde at around 9pm after about 30 hours on a very calm ferry crossing from Helsinki (about 1150 km). Yesterday was the 300 mile drive to Helsinki, which started on glorious roads – wit no speed cameras! We had some confusion as Allison was adamant that we should be More Arctic Highway Challenge →
