Rain and Highways

Posted by on 8 December 2012

The weather is somewhat working against me. It is snowing in parts of France I wanted to pass through. So I changed my route to avoid the snow but that mend I had to make a lot more km’s to get to the north. But I did get to spend a day with my sister in law and nephew in Perpignan.

The route from Nice to Perpignan:

It was great to spent a day there, but the weather in France turned from bad to worse. I had my doubt if I would make it back due to the snow everywhere and now it was even snowing in Holland. I bought some extra thermal underwear and took my change and left the next day towards Bordeaux. It was raining most of the way.

The route:

Due to the distances I would have to travel each day I took the highways this time. I really want to get home now.

Today I made my way to Le Mans. Again only highways but today I had to take my tools out during my lunch stop. My TomTom and my MP3 player were not being charged anymore. The Relays I installed stopped working. I bypassed it and off we went.

The route:

Tomorrow I will make my way back to Dunkerque and I will have made it full circle. Then depending on the weather conditions in Belgium and Holland I should be back home on Monday the 10th of December.

    Hallo Steven,
    Welkom thuis, dat laatste stukje zal ook wel lukken, als het goed is, is de laatste sneeuw dit weekend wel
    weggesmolten. We hebben genoten van je belevenissen en hebben bewondering voor wat je (hoofdzakelijk) in je eentje hebt volbracht en de creativiteit om de moeilijkheden onderweg op te lossen. Het is een avontuur waar je je hele leven met voldoening op kan terugkijken en zo te lezen heb je vele nieuwe vrienden gemaakt waar je misschien nog veel plezier mee kan hebben.
    Thuis zal wel even omschakelen zijn, maar daar zal Sarah je wel mee helpen.
    Groeten Lida en Joost Bolwidt
