MY TRAVELS

5500kilometres on the road on the last 3 weekends! People often ask why I´m not in the shop on the weekends! I simply can´t!

But sometimes this job has something cool! You see a lot of different countries and meet so many people!

Weekend 1:

Down to the bavarian sea! The Chiemsee!

It´s one of my favourite places to be on this planet! What a view from your breakfeast table!

The reason to go was to pick up this 62 SAMBA!

It´s been sold the same day I bought it!

 

Weekend 2:

Going down to the beautiful italian island of Albarella to relax for "1" day before going back over the amazing the Lago di Garda! Two places not very typical for Italy and that´s the reason why I like them! Clean and piecefull!

Weekend 3:

That´s me waiting to catch the train through the channel tunnel to get to England on friday noon! It was already a 9,5hour drive to get to Calais!

After another 4 hours through rain and traffic a met up with James from the Greenharts who got me a Nissan Pao. We drove to Portsmouth to attend the Greenharts monthly club night at the Funkenblitz shop!

I dropped off the Razor that I brought for Alex Taylor and decided to go to bed early after beeing on my feet for about 22 hours!

DSCF0348

 

Was very nice seeing you guys again! Can´t wait til Drag Day!

DSCF0361

 

The next mornig, with the PAO already on the trailer, I decided to go down to Portsmouth again to take the coastal road to Brighton and then go up direction London and Cambridge!

Before Brighton I went into a supermarket to fuel my body up and soon found the right stuff!

What exactely does family fuel do? If daddy drinks it the family soon groes bigger? Is that what it does?

DSCF0368

 

I came across the next cool thing on the parking outside the market! East european immigrants with special carts are all over the place to clean your car and maybe check out what you left inside!

DSCF0369

ON HAND!

DSCF0370

 

Isn´t that exactely what you expect to see when you visit the UK? I´m looking forward to go to the VANFEST in september!

 

DSCF0373

 

Spotted in the Brigton area: FAT PEOPLE ARE HARD TO KIDNAP! How true!

 

Another 2 additional questions about the UK:

1.Why do the English drive so many french cars?

2. Why do so many people break down with their cars on the english motorsways?

I counted 38 breakdowns on 250 kilometres of motorway!

 

DSCF0374

 

Dartford Crossing! Both, the tunnel and the bride are unbelievable buildings!

DSCF0375

 

My old lady was already waiting for me in front of the T2D / T3D headquaters on saturday afternoon! She is still wearing her ugly gasburners! Paul!!! Please!!!

DSCF0377

As soon as I got there I realised that Mr. Med also is about to dive in the JAP-CRUISER-THING! He´s already got a Cube and now added a PAO to his car park!

DSCF0382

 

The place to stay for the night! The Flatline Lowriders from Belgium were in the same B&B as you can easily see in the window!

DSCF0387

 

As Puppy promised a naked bar-b-q on saturday evening quite a few VW-celebs already showed up the day before the open day to get disappointed by a full dressed Mr.Med! The Burger donations would be much higher if you´d leave the clothes off ,Paul! :-)

...but we all liked the "balls out" stunt bike performance you gave us!

DSCF0390

 

Scotty came in his barndoor! The oldest know right hand drive in the UK! Scotty´s favourite colours are now beige and brown!

If you look very close you can see Freddy lurking through the DJ-bus window.

The next morning quite a few people had a certain stamp on different body parts!
