In Lynne Pearce's essay, movement between two places (the north of England and rural Scotland) is the focus of a piece combining the personal with the more conceptual. Phenomenology inspires the study of diary extracts of driving the same route regularly over a period of more than ten years. Her account of these road trips in her own ‘driving diaries’ becomes the ‘date’ in this perceptual exploration of what we are thinking when we are driving.
