Most Recent Blog is at the top…. Enjoy…

March- April 2022

So….For some- Life Goes on At the last blog we had rushed home from southern Spain in time to see my mum Corinne before she sadly died of cancer on 24th February. Very bad, sad days for all of us.  The next two months were therefore in turmoil for us and many family members. We were blessed with the generosity of the neighbours of Mum and Dads who let us…

Adiós

3rd March 2022 Well as you may all be aware this blog should have been written from the sunny depths of the south of Spain. I am however writing this from alongside the Leeds to Liverpool canal on a damp cloudy cold English March day.  But to get up to date… the last blog was written on 1st February whilst we were on the Brittany Ferry heading from Portsmouth to…

Winter in the UK !

31st January 2022 So… at this point -(17th December)- we have now arrived back in England though restricted by Covid rules. Requirements at the time were for us to self-isolate immediately on return and arrange a PCR test within two days. It seems never ending…. Can’t complain though as we did get chance to visit Europe for the month and we certainly expected big restrictions.  Michelle had previously booked a…

Spain

19th Dec 2021 So.. here we are in Europe and just entering Spain at the time of the last blog.  This has worked out (as always) to be a journey of discovery and to get a feel for the areas we visit. Often times it is not possible to spend much time in one area as travel is necessary, however we are still learning, seeing and soaking up as much…

Europe at Last

7th December 2021 Well… at the end of the last blog we were in the throes of putting Ruby into the motorhome dealership in Paignton for the week in order to get the service and some warranty work done. As planned we visited the Big Yellow Storage company in Torquay and stuffed everything from Ruby into a store cupboard in a secure warehouse. This actually worked incredibly well despite having…

6 Hotels, 22 nights, 5 Counties

7th Nov 2021 Yes, we know. We are supposed to be ‘on the road’ – lapping up the freedom and travelling the world. However we have spent the last 6 weeks staying mainly in hotels in several places throughout Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Devon and Somerset.  Well an opportunity came up to earn some dosh and catch up with old acquaintances. As many of you know (especially as I mentioned it…

Work Stops Play

28th Sept 2021 So… it has been a while since our last blog and for good reason. Our travels have slowed down over the last 6-7 weeks partly due to long term planning and partly with late changes.  It was time to catch up with connecting with the Somerset/Gloucestershire area families following a brilliant and exciting spring and summer.  We were sad to leave the Lake District after what was…

Holiday in the Lake District

12th July 2021 So… we had a 18 day ‘holiday’ pre-booked at a campsite near Keswick but entered the Lake District for a couple of days wild camping in advance. Well, what an interesting and exciting welcome to the area with the roads immediately becoming small and narrow. Mich had located a car park alongside mountains and between Lake’s Buttermere and Crummock which looked ideal. Always keen to put Ruby…

Yorkshire hills once more

1st July 2021 So. Here we are once again. Into July in England and with the country drowning in summer rain and thunderstorms. ! On leaving the cosy overnight stops of suburban Pontefract we headed slightly north for a wild camping site on Ilkley Moor. But first we thought we should pop into Thorpe Arch near Wetherby to watch the Leeds United players at their training ground on their first…

Scotland Plus

15th June 2021 After spending a big chunk of time in England and Wales it was time for a change of country again. We had planned on trekking all the way up into the Scottish Highlands for many weeks and to do the famous NC500 (North Coast 500 miles). However with a little bit of persuasion I carried out some research into midges and discovered that they were in fact…

June – the first half

1st June 2021 Well, after that limited blog in May you are lucky enough to have lots of lovely content for the first half of June. Sorry if it is a big long but it is also a record of our activities for our own use when reading this in 20 years time! So, we spent a rather wet month in Pateley Bridge during May and thankfully the sunshine turned…
