Van Blanc had its first dealer service this week at 15,000 miles and we are preparing for a summer full of adventures.
First a short trip to the Cotswolds to get Bug Blanc’s crank balanced and fetch the exhaust system. Then we are off to Edinburgh to see my relatives and the Rolling Stones (no I am not related to them).
After Edinburgh we had planned to do the NC500 but we had a late change of plan when we found out that, as well as Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button will be racing at Le Mans and as committed endurance sports car fans we could not resist. So we are heading home straight after the Stones concert for a quick turn around and heading to le Circuit de la Sarthe for the 23rd time. As we will already be in France we decided to head out to Brittany for a week at the sea side.
We do actually get a few weeks at home to enjoy summer at home and perhaps in our garden as well as going up country to a wedding but then we are off again. This time it will be the long haul to the Nordkapp and back, a round trip of 7500km. You might have read our previous Norway adventure when we got as far as the Arctic Circle since when we have regretted that we didn’t go further. Norway is a spectacular country and we are looking forward to enjoying it for several weeks.
So watch this space for updates and images from our summer 2018 adventures.
