We learned that the 21st of July is a national holiday in Belgium, meaning all charging points were closed and almost got stuck on our first day. We got the honour to be one of the first users of some charging facilities, and learned how payment options should be standardized. We had great conversations with fellow EV drivers and were a little jealous of that fancy Tesla in Italy. And traveling to the south of France? Well, we learned how the charging infrastructure at supermarkets like Auchan and IKEA made driving long distances very comfortable and reliable. Doing it in one day will become tight, but with charging network developments on the rise it surely is possible.
During the trip, I filmed and photographed and was mostly responsible for curating our blog and Instagram. I loved it to be in a new environment everyday and always had something new to capture. It was a holiday with a goal. When we returned, our team edited 3 weeks of footage into a 3 minute video.
