Thanks very much.
although his passport says "Born: Whalley", which has caused me to 'lol' on several occasions in the past, before the term 'lol' had been coined. Proto-lolling.
I'm not road-tripping to Accrington pal.
I would say Dartmoor is beautiful, has a wicked river with rocks to lark about on, and completely relaxing.
If you surf, then Cornwall obv.
If you want to see some architecture, Cambridge.
If you like tea at 5 and tories, tunny wells
or maybe London. But probably Manchester.
Decent time driving, great place to finish.
Plymouth to Exeter could be done in 45 mins across the moors if you knew the road well. Doing 80mph on a very thin road with the very real threat of sheep, ponies, tourists and tractors = stupid but fun.
Then having to get your car fixed because the brakes blew up when you get there. HARDCORE.
Swindon is right out.
Like your camera.
Most of Scotland.
Skye is amazing.
I'm a jammy git and get to drive round Skye/Lochaber/Torridon reguarly for work!
you get to drive on this road:
'mazin road that, and Applecross is a lovely beach/village.
I've not been to Skye since I was about 9 either.
And you can tube it back when your car brakes down.
I prefer your 'driving at sheep at 80mph' suggestion
All roads should lead to camping outside Tan Hill pub after a marathon lock-in. Last time my Dad went up there a helicopter nearly landed on him.
It will blow your tits off.
and that some Newcastle fans wear Altern-8 style industrial suits to the derby matches because of this?
and they'd be right. it has monkey world and durdledoor.
gutted their boards are down
North Lem, its the place to be
you got your shops, your facilities, your modesty,
its respectable, not full of scruff, and with a bit of coin, more than enough
down in South Lem, the ghetto is bold
full of dirty gringos with looks that are cold
if you hang about, you'll catch an std
gonaereah, herpes or hiv
I used to be South Lem, ran with the Sydenham crew.
or yorkshire dales.
My description's better.
and end up somewhere like Scarborough, or Robin Hood's Bay. From city, through nice rolling hills, heading to sea and cliffs. Yeah, that's the one.
Generally you're going to get to where you're going in a few hours, which isn't quite the same as spending days and days and days driving across America.
If it's just nice scenery you're after, then Please Visit Your National Parks (oh-eee-oh-eee-oh!).
Cornwall to Ayr isn't a few hours..
^If you do this, make sure you stop off at Tebay (Westmoreland) services and say hi to the ducks for me. Cheers.
especially round the Gower peninsula is perfect road trip material.
