So here's the second of the road trips done this summer, bringing back a couple of cars from Dublin to Elbonia.

Waiting for boredom under typical Irish weather :

I have a rhaat in the mirror :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_2.jpg

The cars are in the hold :

Connecting the taupes for a little IFE (In Ferry Entertainment) :

The Rhaat gets smoked :

Goodbye Ireland :

Foolish weather until the last moment :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_7.jpg

The Rhaat gets aggravated at having his big ass kicked at Trhaackmania :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_8.jpg

…and promptly falls asleep :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_9.jpg

We indulge in a gourmet dinner :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_10.jpg

A Rhaat in the sunset :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_11.jpg

Much better without :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_12.jpg
The Rhaat tries on new clothes :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_13.jpg

Having fun with my camerhaa while I sleep :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_14.jpg

In Brittany (not Murphy) the next morning :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_15.jpg

No cruise control here :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_16.jpg

With the Rhaat leading :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_17.jpg

Note the speed limit sign  Silly :
http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g220/UTA_flyinghigh/Rhaatesque%20Road%20Trip%20-%20Summer%202006/rhaatrip_18.jpg

We stop for gas and hot dogs :

Indeed, now to see if the fleet manager notices it's missing  Silly

The only company car I had in Rhaaireland was the taxi to get to/from the rhaairport Sad

A rhaa of a report, very nice!

You guys have nerves, I wouldn't speed like that in France because it can get pretty expensive!

The Rhaat is driving a Renault Clio.

So here is my turn with some pictures:

Note that UTA got smoked more often by me than the contrary.

My trip started in Nice, flying with this Rhaaer Lingus A330 (EI-CRK) to Ath Cliath.

UTA smoked 2 seconds by the Rhaat

The boat was hardly going fast which meant Ireland was visible for a long time

The aforementioned fool

Will now smoked by 5.38 seconds. He blamed it on the light. I blame it on his lack of skill.

I know this is going to sound really stupid (and I think that I know that there is no such place) But where, or what is Elbonia??  Confused

Cool pictures and trip by the way guys  bigthumbsup

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Judging from the pictures it is HauteSavoie or Rh�ne-Alpes/Alpes-Maritimes .
