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.

Stinking hot again today after a pleasantly cool night last night (thanks to the altitude).

Steady drive on quite roads where possible and passed through some pleasant scenery. Took diesel on which proved, as has been the case so far, to be relatively easy. Credit cards working OK.

Seen a few wooden churches and quaint villages but there's a slight sense of tat and many tourist traps seem a bit dog-endy.

Overnighting spots seem a bit tough to score but we are managing.

Emma biked and I managed a swim in a lake that was used by locals and holiday makers. Emma didn't go in as she thought it a bit mucky. I put a brave man face on but she was right,, it was.
