mad Dutchman

on a secret mission

The London To Brighton to Paris Electrical Vehicle Rally 2023 is almost there. Just a few more months left.

Before I take part in the rally. I will be on a secret surprise mission.

For some reason I became a fan/supporter for The Big Lemon buses.

On Twitter I read, that they opened another office in Bristol and depot in Bath.

To surprise them I will be leaving tot the UK a few days earlier to start a secret surprise mission. I’ll try to take a picture of those locations and quickly move onto the next location or at least get away of there as quickly as possible.

Afther that has been done, I’ll make a video of it.

Hopefully I do not run into Tom, Bill for example, or the mission will be over. 🙂


First I have to plot the route of the mission and the rally to get an idea how long everything will take.
