The Long Drive North – Goodbye to Greece

It was a tough decision, but after over two months in Greece most of which has been spent on the Peloponnese peninsular we finally had to tear ourselves away and start heading north.  After a few weeks we have had time to reflect on our time there and although it’s difficult to sum it up…

Greece Continues to Inspire & Impress

As I sit here writing this update my view is one that can only be described as one of stunning beauty. The golden sandy beach backed by the azure blue sea and the distant view of Zante in the background. Another bit of  Peloponnese paradise. The only sounds are of  the waves as they crash…

Our guide to keeping fit whilst on the road

One of the best things about travelling around Europe in our motorhome has been finding a more natural and healthy pattern in our daily lives. In our pre-motorhome days we were always too busy, too stressed or just too tired to contemplate much in the way of exercise, and when we did it was often…

One month in Greece – Our top tips

  Within moments of arriving in Greece we had already fallen in love. Bustling with the excitement of being in a new country and meeting up again with our friends and fellow motorhomers Karen and Myles, we almost couldn’t contain ourselves.

Greece now the top of our destination list

Three weeks into our tour of Greece with our travelling companions “The Motoroamers” (http://motoroaming.com) and we are utterly in love with the place.

Roaming in Rome & our quick flit through Italy

I don’t know why but neither of us were particularly excited about Italy, maybe due to the mixed reviews we’d heard or read from fellow travellers that had often told of a roller coaster experience of one minute loving the place and the next minute disliking it, or maybe we were viewing it as a…

A round up of our time in Spain

If your vision of Spain is the “Britishness of Benidorm” then think again as there is so much more to this vast country. People often have an image of the Spanish holidays of the past with Sombreros and donkeys sold by the dozen at kiss me quick resorts on the Costas.  After spending the last…

Travel is as much about people as places

When we think of travelling we often focus on the places we visit, the sights we see or the views we take in, however we have found that travel is often much more than that.   As I sit and reflect on the last few weeks it’s been far less about the places we’ve visited and…
