@Chris, when are you going to rebuild your Kangoo into a small camper? I'm looking forward to more roadtrips

I just bought a mattress, so I only need to do something about ventilation, the regular ventilation inside the car is not enough. I already slept in my car once.

it's still tomorrow i think my Giro report is about to be finnished tonight

so, A14. Adriatica. or as i like to call it "degli oleandri" because there is a plenty of those lovely plants around it and in the middle of it.

soon as we entered motorway in Giulianova, we passed over large impressive viaduct Salinello (1454 m long, i don't know how high it is, but it is very high - reminds me to hungarian Köröshegy)


















3+3 section at A14 is extending to Pedaso

My bad, you're right, sorry far spamming the thread.
Have a nice trip Des, and don't forget the Romanian girls.

entering the working zone for 3rd lane


we're allready at our exit - Ancona south. we didn't take many photos - me because of driving, and my friends because they were nervous. namely, we were a little bit late for check in for ferry because there was awfull crowd at all service areas, and we were hungry (+ employers at Autogrill at service area Piceno are the hell horrible). and they we had jam 7 km before our exit because of minor accident (but there was 5 km jam).gosh, i'm speaking italian fantastic when the situation is serious! i managed to extend our check in time






this is part of road that leads to port. we didn't ahve that nice road all the way, we had to go through city centre, too. fortunately, there are direction signs to port most of the way. but in some occasions they are "made in Italy" and having a company with other 30 direction signs
and then when you reach the port, following the signs to ferry port will make you going round and round. at one place you must start to follow signs to fair, and then again to ferry






finally our ferry! we wereonly 15 minutes late for proposed check in, but everyone was late because they say tocheckin 2 hrs before depart, and you can do it even half an hour before. but at passport control is jam,so better to do it earlier.

Instead of going from Prague to Krakow I would go Prague->Wroclaw->Krakow. Give yourself few hours in Wroclaw or stay a day, well worth it. Very underrated city in my opinion. The market square can rival anything in Europe. They have a great microbrewery there too.

Well, I said Genova which absolutely isn't my hometown, yet worth a visit as I saw he passes there, but didn't put it on his list of towns to visit (he put Milan, which is worth a visit too).

My hometown is Antwerp, but as he comes from the Netherlands, he can go there every single weekend, and I think he will be impatient to drive southwards!!!

So I put Genova.

Worth a visit in France: Carcassonne, Bayonne (fętes), St-Jean de Luz...

I wouldn't visit too many cities on such a roadtrip. You'll get so many impressions in very little time. Maybe you eventually can become city-tired.

^ I fear that too. The number of visited cities has to be limited, at least for me.

with an ancient rusty signal and ramp


but soon we got on new nice 20 km long connection road of Zadar centre with A1






entering A1








3 km queue in front of tunnel Sveti Rok. we're deciding to go to D-road because of it. oh what a stupid mistake! near Slunj we entered 60 km jam which extended our trip for 3 hrs

I once did a 'zomertoer' (summertour) in the Netherlands. It is a trainticket for two people for two days and you can travel unlimited by train inside NL. A friend and I, we visited 11 cities in two days, and after the last one, I was happy it was over, because all dutch cities look the same and it gets bored after a while.
-edit- my 1,000th post
