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. Our initial feelings have been further cemented the longer we stay in this beautiful…

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. Why do we feel  this way about a country that we are yet to fully explore,  maybe it’s the simple beauty of the place, an abundance of beach side spots along breath-taking…

Gorgeous Greece

A round up of resources – How we find places to stay

As well as being exciting, embarking on a European trip for the first time or entering an unknown country can also be a little daunting. As we left the now familiar territory of Spain and entered Italy, we took to the internet and our various resources to research where to visit and where to stay….

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…

Cyclotricity Electric Bikes Review

When Paul first mentioned electric bikes as a possible option for us on our travels, I can remember pulling a face at the idea as I envisioned an undersized bike that a generation much older than ourselves may opt for. I wanted a bike that would keep me fit, not one that did all the…

Living in a Box – The untolds of living in a motorhome

We along with all the other motorhomers who escape the UK for winter (or in our case longer) are incredibly guilty of bragging about all the fun stuff we’ve done, what is often left unsaid is the more unsavoury part of motorhoming, the dark side which should also play a part in the decision making…

Treasured Times at Playa De Carolina Spain

The last couple of weeks we have broken new boundaries by staying in the same place for a whole 15 days!! The spot worthy of this extended stay is just up the coast from Aguilas at Playa De Carolina (GPS 37.385948 -1.628475), a wild camping spot with a bay on each side where we were…

Treading old ground in Garrucha & Mojacar

9th – 12th February 2017 With heavy snow on the way we needed to make our way back down the mountain to avoid being caught up there without snow chains. As we are now covering some old ground in Spain we decided to make a cross country journey along the A92 for a change of…
