After a quick breakfast in Brussels, I was back on the road for what was to be my first long haul of a day.  The city was coming alive and traffic on the narrow streets was getting tricky.  After two weeks of reminding myself to drive on the wrong side of the road, try...

I pulled into the Goodwood Racetrack a little after 4pm on Saturday, ready to begin the adventure.  The early afternoon had been spent in a mad hunt for jerry cans as gas stations may be few and far between in some countries.  I was afraid that I was going to be one of...

I have spent the past two days in Lewes, near the southern coast of Great Britain. It is located in a valley close to the English Channel.  These past two days have given me a chance to go over the Rascal one last time, as well as load up the last bits and pieces of eq...

The day dawned cold and wet.  I lay in the hammock of the Rascal trying to decide if I really wanted to get up.  The library was just across the street (free wifi) and the pub was just a block away.  There was even a Middle Eastern market around the corner that would b...

The city of Sheffield is a city in transition.  As fans of the (1997) movie, The Full Monty will recall, Sheffield made a name for itself as the steel capital of England.  Between Steel and coal, Sheffield was booming.  But by the 90’s, the steel industry had left for...

After returning from Leeds, I decided that I really needed to take a shower and set up a base of operations for the next few days.  I had a laundry list of things to do and it would help if I had a reference point for judging distance and time.  A quick stop at a cafe...
