On the 9th of April 2018 I set off on a tour of a lifetime with the Bailey of Bristol team. As I am sure you are aware the tour was an epic adventure. At the time I did not realise just how amazing the experience would be. You could go as far to say I was borderline apprehensive prior to leaving, for multiple silly reasons. Once I got behind the wheel and got some miles under my belt, along with some valuable lessons from the team, all the fears I had went away which lead me to having an experience of a lifetime.
Today is my first back to normality after 3 weeks touring around Europe and Asia on the Bristanbul tour and I can safely say I have been bitten by the travel bug once more. The freedom that a touring home gives you really does open up the world and shows just how easy touring abroad can be.
So let me start off by saying thank you to the guys at Bailey for selecting me for this tour. Not only was it one of the best experiences I have ever had but it also gave me the chance to make new friends and be part of a team that instantly came together and got stronger as the tour went on.
One of the highlights for me was the team and how it worked. From a normal leisure journalist, yes that is me, all the way to the Bailey Marketing Director Simon Howard there was no task too big or small. We all chipped in to cook, clean, drive, tow and most of all teach.
I was very unsure about towing abroad, especially in a right hand drive car on the other side of the road. Throughout the tour if anyone was unsure of anything there was always someone on hand to help out and make sure that all aspects of the trip were not too tasking and more importantly, enjoyable.
Throughout the next three Fridays I will be writing up a feature for the 3 legs of the tour that I completed, hence the brief overview of the trip in this article. So check in every Friday for my in depth break down of each leg of the might Bristanbul tour.
