@Marino ohhhh sex.

Yes it does have a strange effect on our directions, I think we are planning a trip to Croatia next year, just your standard tourist type but I will be contacting you for advice.
Yes, anything to help, just ask
I hope I will be next summer at home to go to Croatia as well
It must be something in the water :shock:

Return back home from Cro, same way, but this time very wet, lot of rain. It was good all the way to Munich, cloudy but dry.
Austria didn’t promise a lot but no rain at the end

Than lunch near Rosenheim and quick nap as it was sunny and warm

Look like I killed all Austrian fly’s

As I had plenty of time, managed to travel on relaxing speeds, averaging 70 mph, and consumption 51mpg.
Usually I don’t care about it as I do it for pleasure, but computer is there so why not.

After nap, continued towards Munich where started to rain and didn’t stop all the way to Frankfurt, proper downpour for over 4 hours. As I was not in hurry to arrive to tunnel, I decided to stop overnight in my half tent. It is a beach tent so no proper stuff but better than nothing. I called it half camping because of half tent

At least I covered half way, 1000km, 620 miles


2nd day, woke up at 5 as all truckers stared to move and make lot of noise. Road traffic didn’t bother me but those mofos couldn’t wait for some decent time.
It was wet and nasty all the way to Brussels where sun came out and change my mud to “life is beautiful”.

Last bit about half hour through the France rain started again, just to remind me how nasty it can be.
UK border control reminded me about 14 quarantine days, you have to submit online form and save it in your phone as proof.
First time in my life they asked me to open my luggage and check, fortunately didn’t find cheese, sausages, Dry meat and rest of Croatian delicatessen. Canister on top of the top case was full of red wine, 12 litres, I told them it’s spare fuel. They didn’t check, thank haven.
Up on crossing, weather in Folkestone was nice, sunny and warm and stayed all the way to Peterborough where started to rain. And gradually as I approached closer to home it turn into the misery, wet, cold, shit.
I was not happy at all so no pics as well, just couldn’t wait to arrive home and lay in a hot bath, cold went into my bones.
I managed to cover another 1000 km in a day
Last pics, is just total journey with some miles in Croatia, total 2978 miles, in 58 hrs, average speed 59mi/h, consumption 5.4 lit on 100 km, what is 52 mpg

Even if return wasn’t brilliant as the way down south, I would do it again any time.
