That's a good question.

My parents never went on vacation there in the time I went with them.

Right now, I don't have specific plans to go to the UK, but I want to do so some point in the future. The problem is I'm an impromptu traveler, I don't book or plan much ahead, so I'm a little hesistant to the channel tunnel by train or by ferry.

Hmmm... Tried to draw a map, but would take too long, so here's a short version:

Northernmost point: North Cape, Norway.
Eastern most point (in Europe): Norwegian-Russian border
Western most point (in Europe): Sintra / Cascais, Portugal
Southern most point (in Europe): Murcia, Spain

In total I've driven in the following countries:
Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Andorra, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, San Marino, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, United Kingdom (England), Malaysia, United States (California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona)

My previous car had 400.000 km's on it when I sold it...

That and if you go with a group of people (say 3 families with 2 - 3 people in each family) it's cheaper to split the cost of fuel than for each individual person to buy a plane ticket.

Dover-Calais by ferry - quick, cheap and very easy. no hesitation required at all except of course for the horrible slow road network we have over here

Driving on the left might present a challenge too, for a person not accustomed to it.

It usually doesn't take long to get used to driving on the left. Especially at crossings think well where you have to go. As long as Chris doesn't try it out in Zwolle, he'll be fine

Channel ferry/train, quick, impromptu, and cheap - what's your secret?

I've made two crossings (once by train and once by ferry) without much planning ahead. You're absolutely right, it's very easy, quick, and straightforward. But both times it was ridiculously expensive. Wouldn't do it again.

I agree. Driving on the left was easy.

What takes a little more time getting used to is driving a stick shift when you're in the "wrong" seat.
(but you get used to that as well, so no worries)

I've gotta say Chris, how do you find all the time for driving these enormous stretches, when you have to work?

I don't take three weeks off in the summer, but 1.5 week every time. So I can travel multiple times, to different destinations And when I was younger, my parents went to a different country every year, so I got to see quite some roads, though I have travelled most of the roads displayed at least once in the last 6 years.

Some people go 25 years to the same campsite in France and think they "know" France. I love seeing different parts of countries.

Enormous stretches? He's 21, you can drive across whole Europe in that time. Seriously, you can see half of Europe in a few weekends.

Here's my map. Red is what I have driven, green is for roads that I have been a passenger on (family trips, buses, etc). Where I have driven myself and been driven, I put red to cover green.
