From Bath to Calais to Le Mans

Monday 4 June 2018 and we actually managed to be packed and ready to go on time, this is unusual. Quite a nice day for a gentle drive down to the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone, in fact we got there in such good time we were able to catch a Shuttle an hour ahead of…

Rajasthan 12

We begin our journey home. Collected from The Tigress Hotel at 06h15 we bumped our way down the dirt track for the last time, at least this time in a car with working lights so we could see the potholes. We have a short drive from Ranthambore to the railway station at Sawai Madhopur where…
