Andy thought it was just a nickname I had for the street as it is pronounced Sucky-Hall, but oh no that's Scotland for you. Also the great thing ...
... doing so, c) the desire to do something different, and d) wanting to escape another anti-climactic Scottish summer...
Down to business then... We intend to spend six weeks driving through France, into northern Spain and back again, in a Talbot Express campervan bought specially for the occasion.
