The Unplanned Road Trip

For 19 days from Thursday the 18th of April to Monday the 6th of May, my husband and I will be going on a road trip around the South East, South West, Wales and the Midlands but there is a big twist…… There is only a few things that are booked which is the beginning of the trip in Portsmouth as we both really want to go to the Mary Rose Museum and the end of the trip in Nottingham when we go to see my sister.

We will not be booking any tours, accommodation or attractions until we actually stop somewhere. We do not have set days to be anywhere so we will be driving until we find somewhere we like the look of and then stopping.

Now, for people who know me well, know that I am very big on planning ahead. I like to book things in advance so that I know what I am going to be doing and where I will be so this is completely out of my comfort zone but I am willing to give it a go.

We are going to be heading down to the coast in the South East, along to the South West to explore parts of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Wales before heading up through the Midlands to Nottingham.
We have a few places that we have picked out that we would like to go to along the way like Portsmouth, Beer, St Ives, Bath, St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, Cardiff and Bristol but we still won’t be booking anything until we are there because we don’t know when we will be there.
We will be using a number of apps along the way to help us out such as Trip Advisor, and a number of Google apps as they use locations to give suggestions.
This page will serve as my diary for the lead up and during the trip.
