Business to business, in previous working life speech, or for us in now in MH world, Bra to Barolo. Well actually it was C 2 B, as we left the coast of Finale Ligure (all sets of keys firmly intact and hanging where they should) as we headed off on the Monday in thunder, lightning and heavy rain for an inland town called Cuneo. Why, you might ask, but for us it was why not. We … [Read more...] about B 2 B
On our previous Motorhome adventure in 2017 we did not get on with Italy, I don’t really know why, perhaps it was so early in the year or that in the south it seemed everyone wanted to rip you off. Or just maybe we had fallen in love with Spain and Italy was not in the running. Here we are, in 2020 a new normal and Italy is fantastic! So what has changed? As you know we … [Read more...] about Viva Italia!

After … [Read more...] about The Big Split
What a week, after just over 10 weeks completely stationery at Sundance Camp in Turkey and then a short sprint in the outside world of Turkey, with a two week ‘just to be sure’ stay in a lovely apartment in Gulluk we have done 1,500 km in the five days. Buster hasn’t known what has hit him, but nevertheless responded as usual very well, requiring his little health kick cocktail … [Read more...] about Turkxit!
Goodbye, Adieu, Slan, Güle güle, a Farewell to Sundance and moving on. After 10 weeks our lockdown adventure at Sundance camp is came to an end and we have flown the nest.

As I write in the shade of the bar area drinking ‘Cay’ odd that a hot drink can cool you down, it is 38 degrees in the shade. The van is like oven and to top it off though site is on the sea and we have a river flowing through it. We are not allowed into … [Read more...] about So Dammm Hot! Diesel-gate and other stories.
When we started off in January to see parts of the world that would be new to us and go off the beaten track. Elddis had given us a brand-new Encore 250 and we were so pleased that they had improved the 2020 version on the already great one we had taken to Spain in 2016.
