In Greece I've noticed that people actually move over onto the hard shoulder to let faster traffic pass. I see it every time I get off the ferry at Patras heading towards Athens.

I should use mirror to convert this to understandable traffic...

I finally uploaded my report of my trip from England to northern Norway. It's to be found in the dedicated threads of the UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Sorry, I left Germany out. I think I forgot to take pictures...
In the Netherlands I stayed one night in Schiedam, then drove to Sneek to pick my granddad up. On the way back I dropped him back off in Sneek and had to go to Mönchengladbach for a reload to Manchester. So my weeks worth looked a bit like this:



I've put a lot of work into this, so I hope you enjoy it

Not at the moment. Work has dried out and did a bit of taxi driving here. I'm ill at the moment. But once I get better I will pick up my European Express deliveries up again. I've got a new job lined up for a firm in Stuttgart doing just that. And if not, there is a great possibility that I might be moving back to the UK permanently, as there are a few companies there who wants me.

But I really do miss it. Done it for 8 years. Not much sleep, keep on goin. London-Naples twice in a week, Manchester - Portugal twice in one week, London to Stocholm to Magdenburg to Valencia - only a few days to do that - shit like that. But I also had time to see and visit things, friends, family...

And of course the nostalgia. Camping in the Swedish woods in Sweden for a weekend with two vans for example... Here my van in my garden in Mayrhofen...

When I seen one last time, he smiled and said "Slovenia my friend? Carry on!" in a very friendly manner

This country is in deep economical $hit, but I love the way the people live there. I wish to have at least 5% of Greek blood in my veins. No wonder they have the lowest suicide rate in Europe.

So do Austrians. I fail to see what they've got that I haven't got. I just had a pizza for crying out loud.

It's just mojo. Just mojo.

For what it's worth, I love German girls... they have everything that Italian ones haven't. Mostly, height. And blonde hair

You wouldn't gain anything by having 5% Greek blood except some more.... debt!
