2022 Euro Alpine Trip / HGT'22: 9 days, 7 cars and a few thousand miles of driving


Hello and welcome to my 2022 road trip to Europe! But before we start, we need a little history.

Cast your mind back to pre-Covid times of Summer 2019 and when going for a road trip was super easy. I'd just got back from my 2019 Road Trip when a member of Bimmerpost, @Dackelone, took an interest in my previous road trip write ups and invited me to join the next 1Addicts tour. Of course, i said i'd love to. Six months later, all plans were on hold due to Covid. Unfortunately, in the summer of 2020, @Dackelone passed away to illness (not Covid), thus all planned trips were shelved.

Fast forward to July 2021 when Dutch based 1Addicts member, @joao.toscano approached me and asked me if i was interested in joining a road trip he was planning for 2022. We swapped a few messages, i gave him some route ideas from my previous trips and set things in motion. Before i knew, i was part of a Whatsapp group of around a dozen driving enthusiasts doing a 2022 road trip. As to be expected, a few people dropped out, a few came in, and in the end, it was 8 cars. A nice manageable number.

joao.toscano planned the route for 8 days and then it was a mad scramble to book all the hotels and make sure we had everything we needed; covid jabs, walkie talkies, vignettes, travel insurance, channel crossings, etc.

Unfortunately, a few weeks before departure, one member had to drop out due to work commitments. It couldn't be helped, but he was certainly missed.

So, there we have it, 9 days, 7 cars and a few thousand miles of driving.

The line up;

joao.toscano and his M140i (F20)

Alexander_Sebastian and his M440i (F32)

Oliver and his M2 Competition (F87)

CruzM3 and his M3 Competition Velocity Ed.(F80)

Richard and his M6 (E63)

@bmw.pi314 and his M2

And of course, my M3 (E90)
