Dubrovnik – Destination Complete

17th Sept 2022 So I am writing this sitting under the awning in Dubrovnik during heavy rain and a thunderstorm..! At least it is warm and YES.. we have achieved our target City of Dubrovnik. This is the first serious rainfall for any weeks which gives us some admin and blog time rather than lounging lazily on the beach..!  When last we spoke we were leaving Ljubljana in Slovenia and…

Dubrovnik or Bust – Austria and Slovenia

1 Sept 2022 On 22nd August we were headed south (our favoured direction) once again. This time headed from Titisee (chortle.!) and towards Austria. We were drawn towards Garmisch-Partenkirchen because we knew this was ski country and we like to visit hills… This was close to the Austrian border and within the Bavarian Alps. As expected the views were fantastic throughout the whole trip and we managed to park up…

Dubrovnik or Bust- Titisee 

21st Aug 2022 The title will make sense later… Unusually for us we are doing yet another blog in short order. We are doing so much that it would be a huge undertaking to cover everything in one. We know you guys already get tired and burnt out reading these blogs (!)so smaller chunks would be wise for a while. When last we spoke we were in Luxembourg and headed….…

Dubrovnik or Bust – Getting Started

12 Aug 2022 When we last spoke we had given up early on Scotland. And as expected the weather improved up there after we left…. slightly. However we loved the travelling and the experience of Scottish Highlands. Maybe again one day. In short June and July went like this:- We dropped down to Yorkshire and visited my Dad for a few days before leaving Ruby and jetting off with Jet2…

Soggy Scotland

May 2022 So… this blog records our visit to Scotland basically for the month of May. It was intended to take six weeks but the weather broke us and caused us to retreat early after less than four weeks. ! We have always loved the idea of going on the famous NC500 (North Coast 500miles) around the Highlands and Islands at the top bit of Scotland. We considered that we…

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…
