New Roots

We are pretty excited here at follow our motorhome HQ (A.K.A Chez Boris), as we have found a cute little house that we are hoping will soon be ours. After just a couple of weeks of hard house hunting,where we were finding that properties were being snapped up as soon as they came on the…

We are back in the UK….So what’s next…..

I know it’s been a while since we have posted a blog and that’s because we have been enjoying a different sort of travelling. After a quick 4 week flit back to the UK to get together with as many family and friends as possible over Christmas, we were off again. This time though we…

In Limbo

Having taken Boris back to our dealers on 5th September we telephoned last week for a progress report and were told that he was likely to be with them for around another 6 weeks. This is due to the fact that they are having to wait for a replacement habitation door to be delivered from…

We need a holiday …..

After just 19 days back in the UK and we are both feeling like we need a holiday!! It must be all the partying whilst catching up with family and friends that’s taking it’s toll as we haven’t even started any real work yet. It feels like we’ve had an incredibly busy couple of weeks,…

Catching up back in Blighty

We’d booked an early ferry back from Calais to try and avoid any issues at the port. We were lucky and didn’t encounter any problems (although I was more than a little horrified to see the size of the “jungle”) and even managed to get straight onto an earlier ferry despite having booked the cheapest…

We really didn’t think we would have the time or opportunity to get away in October as we were in the middle of renovating a house to rent out that was proving more than challenging and rather than the list of jobs getting smaller week by week they seemed to be increasing as we found…

National Feast Of Lanterns

As we have a business selling outdoor burners which are used by lots of motorhomers, caravanners and campers we decided this year to have a working break in Boris. The National Feast Of Lanterns is the Camping  and Caravan Clubs annual meet which takes place annually at a different location. This year it was being…

Derbyshire Peak District mini tour

Months ago we arranged a weekend away with friends (Ali & Martyn Houslay) in September and a couple of weeks before we shortlisted a few campsites and sent this to them to choose. They selected a site called Knotlow Farm at Flagg nr Buxton Derbyshire which allowed us to take our own fire pit (after…

Boris visits Blackpool

Recently we had a great idea to meet up with my sister Deanna, her partner Paul and their 8 year old daughter Anya. We would stay in Boris and they would hire a static caravan so that we would all be on the same site. This proved more difficult than I first thought. We decided…

The 1st Excursion – Hastings Sussex

For our first outing we wanted to give Boris a good run out to ensure everything was working well, so off we trotted to Hastings. As it was his first trip we played it safe and booked onto a campsite with facilities (it turned out this was a good decision as we couldn’t use the shower…
