Last year  i promised  a friend id drive his car for him when he moves to italy..

Well he's flying out tomorrow and he's meeting the furniture on Monday at his new house about 25 miles south of Rome ..
And on tuesday  I begin the biggest single journey I will have ever made 1400 miles I'm planning on doing it in 2 days . Hopefully .
Over night in strasborg  on tuesday  night then 12 hours drive on Wednesday

I get a couple of days in the sun before flying back on Sunday. .

You should split that journey up a bit more mate.

I drove to Bosnia about a year ago and it all takes longer than you think.

Good luck though, love a good road trip...

That's some drive mate!!! I thought 1200 miles to the north of Scotland and back was a long way lol but I did stay for the weekend. Never had motion sickness from driving before!!! amazing roads up there though...

Have a safe journey mate & let us know how the drive went when you get back.

Longest I've done in one go was 550, that was more than enough! Like Johnny said, what car is it?

That's one hell of a road trip. 1400 miles in 2 days might just be pushing it.

You would probably be better off doing 500, 500 and 400.

You will feel a hell of a lot better at the end to enjoy a couple of days in the sun.

Safe trip mate your not stupid but if it gets really bad stop rather get there late but in one piece. Sure Indy not long ago done a huge drive remember him telling me

Done some big journeys myself get tired then get past that stage but u feel ok but can be dangerous but half hour pull over shut eyes rest can really help

Well we are back safe and sound ..

Left ours at 10am tuesday  caught the euro tunnel at 2pm and set off for strasbourg  arrived at hotel at 10pm
We did an overnight in strasbourg then set of for rome at 8am the following morning .  14 hrs later we arrived at there new house .

Before we left I predicted we would arrive at 10pm on Wednesday evening
We actually arrived at 9.40pm . 20 mins early .. lol

2 days rest then flew home ..

Northern France is so boring
Some stunning scenery  especially driving through the alps .
And Italian drivers are all nuts
