Tim's Travelling Adventures

Well, this started out as a way that my wife could follow my lone progress in my little sports car from Birmingham UK to Orkney.

Been there, done that 2 day there, 13hour return trip.

So now follow me: an Englishman representing Americans and based in a French office near Paris. With an appartment in Versailles and trips back to the UK anything can happen and, frankly, I've no idea where this will lead!

This blog should document a jouney from Birmingham (UK) to Birsay on the Orkney Mainland.

If that doesn't seem very special, then consider sitting in a two seater, open, home built car, with a range of about 110 miles for something like 11 hours over two days. That's a fuel stop every hour and about 1500 miles in a car that wouldn't normally do that many in a year.

Think no heater, no adjustable seats and earplugs. Think 50 miles to the alternator (well, that's my record so far).

Why? Because Orkney is beautiful and peaceful and because the Wesfield was built to be driven.
