"Seeing a different view out of the window every day!"

What did you like the least?

"Cleaning sand out after trips to the beach."

What was your favourite day out?

"Sandbanks, had never been there before and very pretty."

What surprised you the most? 

"How many challenges drivers face every day and how brilliant they are at solving them."
