In the beginning....

...there was the word. Several in fact, and they make up the start of this blog.

My main reason for doing this is because Jonno and I are hiring a car and will be driving across Europe for two weeks this month. It's so rare that we have any time off that we decided to do something interesting, and as all other plans have fallen by the wayside recently, and as Alex and Geve are off doing their thing, taking our guitars and going places we've never been and meeting strange new people seems like the thing to do!

We'll be driving through France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway...if you live in one of those countries and can put us up or show us round, email me - :-)

Leaving England date: 20th September. Returning 2nd October unless we get arrested earlier.

I'll be blogging whenever I can - no promises of what really happened or the full story, but there'll be photos and I'll be putting together a video at the very, bitter end.

I'll leave you with Winston.

"This is not the end. This is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."



  1. You're right, that's exactly the thing to do!! Good for you :) Can't wait to see what sort of mischief you'll undoubtedly make on the road...... Happy Travels, Boys!!


  2. We're starting off in France, and will be in Paris on Monday.

  3. Best of luck, mate. Have a great time. It'll be a fantastic experience. Can't wait to hear all about it.
