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 5 - Germany

My Location: N 49.23357°, E 10.15714°

Mainly a day of covering ground. Passed through more achingly clean and tidy picture postcard Alsace villages (pic from cab is woefully inadequate) before hitting the bigger roads and the joy of the new German 'umweltzone' restrictions. Basically, without the latest clean-burn engines, many town and city areas are off limits. There is no warning or alternative route, you are suddenly just police bait.

Tough to find a camp but eventually found a very quite nature reserve car park after about an hour and a half of biking. Good nature trail from here so will hopefully do that in the morning.
