THE WAY TO VANFEST 2007

A couple of things came together that let me go confident to this years VANFEST in Malvern/England! My girlfriend an little Max could come with me this time and I also had to deliver a panel van to Hampshire. The delivery money payed for the ferry and most of the Diesel money! Since last year was a big stress only having 3days for the whole trip we decided to take our time this year and spend a couple days cruising the english coast.

Starting on tuesday late afternoon with bad weather in Bavaria we got until Collogne to spend the first night at a motel there! Next day morning we got up early to catch the ferry to find out that the weather already changed to: A LOT BETTER!

To me it seems that I´ve done countless trips to the UK delivering vehicles! It´s actually a long drive with at least 14hours from Weiden to London!

The way to England was the usual one through Belgium but on the way back I decided to go across France to find out that the french route is the more relaxed one!

Going straight to Poole and Bournemouth we met up with our friend Alex Taylor from the Greenhearts who not only got us a nice room with sea view in a decent old hotel but also dealt with the new panel owner the next day! Thanks Alex!

The mixture of mediteranian flair with the english tradition really works good for me! The weather was so nice that we couldn´t believe what we saw!
