Here's a question for you adventurous folks out there. Who has driven the furthest from the UK in their Brazibay. Any takers?

Hi not sure its the longest but last year we did 4500km in a round trip of France. This year was just a quick visit with only 3500 km racked up down to the South and back. I'm sure other folks have gone further, especially if heading East.

We cannot compete, but 500 mile trip to Germany this year. That makes a round trip on the very edge of how far the proclaimers would be prepared to walk!

Thanks for your responses. Great stuff. I did Kent to Northern Spain & back. Wish I'd had more than two weeks. Thinking about the Santander ferry to see more of Spain next time.

I agree the ferry is a great idea, saves a lot of hours behind the wheel just to arrive at where you want to be. I think the Kombi Kaper team went that way to get to Ibiza this summer

West of Glasgow to Lake Como, Italy via the St Gothard road tunnel for our oldest daughter's wedding.
Margaret was the only lady with a big hat as everyone else flew out.
We drove east through France into Switzerland (Sursee overnight) down into Italy. We had white ribbons on the van for photos but the real wedding car was a white launch across the lake.

The furthest Morrison has been from home is Valencia - which is a 6000 km round trip by road.  But as we did the ferry between Portsmouth and Santander - the driving element was around 3500 km across Spain and back. Love a road trip!
