Journey - Driving to Austria

Tue 06 Jul 2004

Arose at 3.30pm and left Earl's place just after five past four on Tuesday morning. The ferry was at 6am and we arrived just at the right time after a stop for fuel. (Got to the port around 5.20am.)

The ferry was on time and we set off about 8.20am French time onto the motorway. Driving in shifts, there were no mishaps until Mark's shift around Nürnburg.

[The Nürnburg incident, which apparently involved a high-speed emergency stop with inadequate brakes, never got written up in the enormous space left for it on the page.]
