    Hubby & son drove the camper back from Spain and did it in 21 hrs - one driving, one sleeping all the way.
    Was going to take it easier and planned to stop off at one of the Tour de France stops but our other son, Jon, was admitted to hospital so just wanted to get home asap:Sad:
    Tolls all the way though -- and motorway cafe food:Eek!:

    We needed to get home from Mahal in a hurry last year did 1,500 miles in two days amazing what you can do when you need to.

    I hope your son is improving now that you are back home.

    Oslo to Dublin

    Few years ago I drove from Oslo, Norway to Dublin, Ireland in 36 hours! Mind you slept for 12 hours on arrival!

    Hope your son is OK.

    Only wish our motorways were as good as theirs.

    Last two years on our winter run to the sun we have managed Surrey to Benidorm in 36 hours going through the tunnel. Tolls all the way works out at 150 euros. Will be a little bit more next time with the new tolls south of Bordeaux.:thumb:
