"Long Way Round" - thoughts for a summer trip

Having bought the Disco on the pretence of doing it up for a long expedition
tour my wife is making noises about when we're going to do it.

So, I'm now having to plan it.

My current thoughts are to take a North Sea Ferry to somewhere in the north
of mainland Scandiwegia and then toodle down through Scandiwegia and the
baltic nations and head back to England from a ferry port somewhere
en-route. Ideally we'd make for Calais, but I'm not sure this is practical.

Anybody done this or anything similar would care to share their experiences?

P.

Same here, but with a 110...

I'm more for the south. Interested in Sahara experiences (for a winter
trip). Any around?

Re: "Long Way Round" - thoughts for a summer trip

Hi Fred,

I will be travelling through France, Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and
Gambia, maybe into Guinea as well, in early January 2005 - fancy going
across the desert together. I will be taking the new road if it is finished
on the Atlantic Route or along the beach.

Tempting.

However, the problem is that at the moment I can't go for very long (family
things such as school, etc.)

Any info anywhere on that new road?
