Well, here's some more with my Volvo. Two journeys. About 2000 KM.

Image
A very cold morning (-2 deg Celsius) as we're driving towards Köln to pick up...

Image
...23 t of Shell Petrol.

Image
Skyline of Köln.

Image
Highway passages.

Image
Gotta love this sign, especially when you realise these signs are always used IRL when they build a road :)

Image
Skyline of Dortmund.

Image
It's probably around 12:00 here. We're heading towards the east.

Image
Traffic's really busy with a lot of trucks.

Image
Route from Hannover to Berlin...

Image
My favorite Raststatte :)

Image
Evening starts to fall around 16:40...

Image
Huge cargo :o

Image
Almost dark at 17:10

Image
Image
Image
Enjoying the peace and quiet as we approach the Polish border...

Image
...and then, this happened (randomly)!

Image
And then, this:

Image
Anyway, let's cross the border with Poland.

Image
Witamy w Polsce or something, anyway we're welcome in Poland.

Image
Image
It's so dark :o

Image
Pretty light because of the lamposts here.

Image
Going up north, direction Gdansk.

Image
The big descent...

Image
Weather becomes foggy...

Image
...rain starts to fall.

Image
Only lasted for an hour though. We're leaving the motorway, towards Grudziadz and Olsztyn, the latter being our destination.

Image
Dark again...

Image
A nice bridge around Grudziadz...

Image
...and arrived in Olsztyn.

Image
Quickly change it to Polish plates (I have numberplate-OCD, I hate it when my trailer has a different country plate than my truck :P) for the next journey, towards Maribor, Slovenia.

Image
Open up the TIR plate and put some spotlights on it...

Image
And get going on the Polish motorways. We have a trip of 1000 KM+ to go.

Image
The Ring (of Warsaw)

Image
Peace and quiet on this stretch towards Katowice.

Image
Nice highways around Lódz...

Image
Getting late already and we're yet to leave Poland...

Image
Image

Image
Entering the Czech Republic!

Image
Czech Rep has some great skies so I like it :P

Image
Aprroaching Ostrava.

Image
Quick fuel stop...

Image
And we're in Slovakia! Bratislava, to be exact.

Image
I had a quick rest on the border with Austria, in the foggy morning.

Image
Spotlights come in handy here.

Image
Good morning Austria, country number 4 :)

Image
Let's show this Renault how and what! Welcome in country number 5: Slovenia!

Sadly it turned out that's the end, it seems like I've forgot to take a drop-off picture. Well, anyway.

So the last journey went to Maribor, Slovenia. I've never been there for long, hence I wanted some garages. I thought I had one, so I teleported to it. Misclick! It was in Klagenfurt. Luckily, Klagenfurt is only about 150 km away from Ljubljana. And there was a truck available for me in Klagenfurt!

Image
Erm

Image
Riiiiight, let's trade that thing in for something more "adequate". This DAF should do.

Image
We're heading to France.

Image
Country #2: Italy. Which left me with some speedy motorway miles.
Let's enjoy some pictures without my commentairy all through it.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Approaching France in the beautiful Alpes(?).

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
And it's dark.

Image
Image
In Lyon we're trying out the radiostreams, which I haven't done in a while. Tuned in to some French pop station and made some progress!

Image
Image
Gettin' wet.

Image
Still along the most southern highway of France.

Image

Image
And it's morning, because I don't like night driving.

Image
Roads cross at this fuel stop. Very weird :P

Image
I'm not a BMW hater but this is "typical" behaviour.

Image
Mercedes drivers are also a bit pushy around here. Or is it the French? IDK.

Image
"You're not getting that spot m8!"

Image
Image
Image
Quick fuel stop.

Image
I think it's a French thing. Seeing that Seat drivers also do this.

Image
Image
"They said I could be anything, so I became a plane"
No clue what happened here.

Image
That's two days of driving...

Image
...and we're at the destination, the Lidl in Nantes.

Image
This bad boy was waiting for me in France, don't let it fool you, this is my old Volvo. It's in good shape!
Oh and the weather became sunny again.

By the way, tired of having to take a Renault from city to city, this is the latest addition to my fleet:
Image

For just € 3 000, an Audi A4 1.9 TDI, that's not a bad deal, is it? Tested at the Autobahn, it can pick up some speed! (and crash)



That's it for today...

We call it Alpen in the Netherlands, so I was a bit confused :)

Image
A mighty Scania!

custom DRLs
No unnecessary stuff

Fill that 1300 L tank up and be able to drive 4250 km!
