Well I’m surprised it took so long for a vehicle that I was in to have an accident, but it was inevitable.

We were heading to the airport when the clouds burst. Even though I’ve seen a fair old number of them in this part of the world I was surprised by how intensely the rain came down.

Within seconds the roads started to flood. 

I grabbed my iPhone to video some of the rain when almost immediately…

Turns out that there was a pretty big dip in the road and a pothole just after. Both were completely filled with water so just looked like the rest of the road.

We hit it at motorway speeds and boom.

The video cuts out just as my seatbelt grabs me and I accidentally hit stop button.

We ended up mounting the centre embankment. The car was alright, but I reckon his tracking is going to need adjusting!

FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I WANTED TO SEE THE WORLD.... From early childhood I inherited a love of adventure movies, books and comics. I loved the action and excitement but I was equally fascinated by the places these took place. At first I was astonished to learn that many of of these fantastic places weren't just movie sets or products of the writers imagination, but real world places that could be visited, seen and touched. Growing up on a beautiful, but very small, island this was a revelation and from that point on I spent equally as much time borrowing books from the library to learn about these places. As I grew a little older and Micheal Palin started his seminal TV show - 'Around the World in 80 Days' - I was hooked, and knew that some day I wanted to have an adventure like his. I've been very fortunate that life has given me the chance to go out and see the world. I've been equally fortunate in discovering another passion in photography. My website - www.neilblakely.com is where I share these passions with all those people who also want to go out and see what lies over the horizon.
