I had to drive to Manchester on Saturday gone. Collecting my lad from the airport. Motorway almost empty, mostly trucks, straight in and out, 2h round trip with a wait at thd airport.

A normal weekend trying to tenter north wales can be difficult (one road in), a bankholiday however, means avoid the inbound motorway at all costs. You could be hours taking a normal 20min drive.

It was a bit surreal. It was travelling midweek at 3am, but at 12pm bank holiday afternoon.

Shame my lad had to admit defeat on Aus, but he has an open return hoping he can make it back there. Thou it looks like it will be New Zealand, when this blows over.
