We’re here in Abingdon, We MADE IT!
After getting off the train from Calais at Folkestone we drive on the M20 to rest stop 24 and meet 3 members of the MG Car Club, Ian, Brian & Ralph which is lovely plus Simon is here also to greet us. It’s great to catch up with Simon again as he left us in Uzbekistan. After introductions & a catch up we take off at about 10 am for about a 3 hour drive to Abingdon.
After leaving rest stop 24 on the M20 and driving for some time on the A20, we thought it might be quicker to get back on the M20 and then transfer onto the M25 around London. How wrong were are, the motorway crawls along for miles and then we get onto the M40 and take off.
However when we get off the motorway and head for Abingdon, we are back to a crawl again. 4 hours later we arrive to a very warm welcome by the MG Car Club at Kimber House. We are all so thrilled to be here.
