Western Europe 2010

For three weeks in September, Chris, Norm and George join me for an epic road trip around a number of European countries. This page allows you to follow our progress, read our twitter updates and generally see what we’ve been up to.


Each overnight stay and the route taken between each of these is shown on the map below. Please be aware that that map may lag behind the timeline by up to 2 hours and that the route shown may not exactly mirror our actual route as google maps only supports a certain number of way points so by reducing the number to get everything on the map, some of the route will be estimated by google maps.

Trip Timeline

A pit stop turns into a city stop if we have been stopped there for over 2 hours
