after some absence and after the repair of my R34 GT last year, I just wanted to share the following with you.
Every year I make a spontaneous GT-short trip, where I follow the motiv: how quickly can I go somewhere, to whom had I promised a SKYLINE tour and where are beautiful roads and beautiful scenery and finally where the weatherforecast is predicting good weather.
This time I choose the so called British Riviera, also known as Cornwall, which I knew from past trips (motocycle) .
We took the crossing from Dunkirk / Dunkerque / Dünkirchen (France) to Dover with DFDS .
The south of England is always wort a journey, yes even worth a holiday because the climate allows to encounter lots of Mediterranean flora.
Many parts along the coastal region hold many for the botanical interested and is a paradise of renowned botanical gardens and is a must pilgrmage for a Green Thumb ethusiast like me.
My favorite is the Trebah Garden and, as it has played a historically role, because this is where one of the coordination centers was established, where in 1944 the bay became the starting point of the D-Day troops to Omaha Beach to set off to Normandy.
Southern England offers extremely much for such a spontaneous short trip and many camping and B & B options are everywhere, but during peak times You may search like a needle in a haystack.
