Google maps says there are 2 825 km from my home in Trondheim, Norway until my Italian home in Muggia, Trieste... a long way of driving. I had some stop outside the route that made the trip a bit longer, but in all, a really long time on the road.
Luckily I love to drive my car, a VW Caravelle from 2015, fully equipped for a wheelchair user, and a bit more. For a long trip like this I feel it is necessary to have an adaptive cruise control to help release some of the tension of holding to the driving stick. And of course a German car is really perfect for the German Autobahn!
I used the trip to combine it with a seminar for a project I am leading - #hjulbeintkampsport. We held our first meeting in Gardermoen, Oslo, so we were four people together with a lot of luggage - A LOT! driving from Trondheim to Gardermoen. Staying a year in a new home I actually did not bring so much, but my big car was so full I could not use the elevator. Luckily I had really good help from my passengers. And for the trip from Oslo we where also two people, so we managed quite well - I drove and my passenger put fuel into the car, did some shopping for coffee and helped with my wheelchair. He even should help with the driving but as I told you, I love to drive.
