Slow road to Cyprus – what went wrong?

Reflecting back on our seven weeks road and sea trip from Bath, UK to Cyprus, most things went pretty well.

Our SatNav system was generally excellent but it played up spectacularly a few times

  • Directing us into the sea when we arrived at Dunkirk, France
  • Sending down a cycle path in Belgium because a road was being repaired
  • Suggesting that we go off-road when confronted with extensive roadworks on a German autobahn
  •  Taking us off-road through fields and forests in Umbria and Tuscany

Of course, we just switched the SatNav off for a bit to cool down….
