A pictorial road journey from Mojacar to Gosport via Dieppe. This is an unashamedly self indulgent post that is made up of 83 photos taken during one of my trips back to the UK, in September 2014.
These photos will give you an idea of what you will see if you decide to drive from Mojacar, Almeria (South Eastern Spain), through France to the UK. We are based in Gosport, Hampshire, and on this trip we took a ferry trip from Dieppe, France to Newhaven in the UK. Therefore the final leg of the trip was a short hop along the South Coast.
Road signs, traffic!
The photos are mainly of roads, signs and traffic – well, they were taken on the road so what do you expect. However, it also has lots of ‘scenery’ too. I must admit this post may not be to everyone’s taste. However, it gives you a good taste of the state of the traffic densities in Spain, France and the UK. Similarly, it does show the huge difference in scenery between the South of Spain and the much cooler climate in the UK.
There are also some interesting roadside sculptures in the North of Spain, as well as pictures of Newhaven as we arrived from France. In addition, if you don’t want to buy a sat-nav, the photos will also show you how to go from Spain to the UK in the shortest time by car. However, it is not the most economical route, as we used some tolls in France and Spain, but there are no other routes that will get you across Europe as fast.
The route from Mojacar to Gosport
This pictorial journey from Mojacar to Gosport is for you if you want to see the business end of what Indalo Transport does. Therefore, It will give you an idea of what we do when we transport your furniture from Spain back to the UK. In other words this is the staple road journey between Southern Europe and Britain. Transporting entails our vehicles travelling along these roads, generally more than once a month, all year. During this trip the weather was glorious for the complete duration, which is not a normal occurrence.
And in case you were wondering, the trip between Mojacar and Gosport took about 22 hours in driving time, plus rest stops and the 4 hour ferry trip across the Channel. Similarly, it was just over 2000km, or just under 1250miles.
In conclusion, you could probably do it a lot faster in a car, and if you do, go here for advice on what you need to carry in the vehicle.
I hope you enjoy this pictorial road journey from Mojacar to Gosport

PS In case you are wondering how this was done, film of the whole route was taken by a dashcam, and then the individual shots were grabbed from the recording – as using a camera whilst driving is most definitely very silly, as well most illegal!
