WELCOME TO OUR BLOGSITE. IT'S MAINLY ABOUT OUR TRIPS - IN A TRUCK.

WHILST TRAVELLING OVERSEAS WE USE THE TRAVELOGUES SECTION OF THE SITE TO DOCUMENT OUR LOCATION, RELAY SOME EXPERIENCES, AND TO TAKE THE OCCASIONAL WITHERING STAB AT TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF THE WORLD.

BY DEFAULT, POSTS APPEAR IN DATE ORDER WITH THE MOST RECENT FIRST BUT NAVIGATING TO THE START OF EACH TRIP IS EASILY ACHIEVED BY FOLLOWING THE 'OLDER POSTS' LINKS.

AS WELL AS MEMORIALISING TRIPS, THE SITE ALSO OFFERS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO US, OUR TRUCK, AND A FEW USEFUL RESOURCES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

Ukraine trip - Day 3 - France


My Location: N 49.00407°, E 05.63086°

Unfeasibly hot today, 40° showed on one pharmacy thermometer. 32° inside truck with everything open.

Impressed once again by French civic pride. Every town and village neat and tidy in exactly the way GB isn't.

Overnighting in a clearing in woodland in a 'natural park', the glade is teeming with insects. Incredible numbers of grasshoppers and butterflies as well as all manner of flies / hornets and other winged beasts that I have little clue about.

We used this spot 4 years ago and found shoes nailed to a tree. They are still here. Weird, as the area is really desolate and not the usual kind of place to nail shoes to trees.
