UK and Ireland Road Trip

I am no stranger to road trips!

We used to live in London and I’d love to drive out of London to Brighton, Birmingham etc between 2007 and 2010.  The mother of all our road trips in UK, however, was the one shown below where we were pretty much on the road every day for 10 full days.

We went north from London to Scotland, put our car on a ferry and went across to Northern Ireland and then all the way back to London.

We were packing up from UK to return permanently to India and there wouldn’t be another opportunity like this!

We shipped all our stuff, hired a car and spent 10 days on the road starting from London going North to Lake District, onwards to Scotland and then we took our car across the ocean in a ferry into Northern Ireland and then onto Ireland; and then all the way back to London before getting on a flight to India.  It was awesome!  Google Maps was still not very popular then.  I used a Garmin Nuvi in this trip

My Naviagor for the trip – Garmin Nuvi

Here are some pics from this trip, feels like yesterday!!
