If you are thinking of getting a campervan or already have one – whether it’s VW size or a more spacious motorhome – I hope you’ll enjoy reading the mini adventures of me and my partner, Steve.
Our maiden year of campervanning took place with the help of our Autosleeper Flair which we bought back in August 2009. And the aim of the blog was to share some of our funny stories, reflections, impressions of our destinations, as well as to pass on any tips we picked up along the way.
The blog sprang up from my itchy-footed enthusiasm, as well as my enjoyment of writing & photography. And I’ve now published a book named after the blog (err… or was it the other way around?… Anyway, see BOOKS tab for info on that).
Since our early adventures, we let go of our trusty old Autosleeper and decided on a more compact & economical Romahome. Unfortunately, the ‘Tardis’ motorhome we hoped one day to own never materialised (ie one that’s small & easy to manoeuvre on the outside whilst having pots of room on the inside).
In 2016, we sold the Romahome to a proud new owner and were ‘footloose & fancy free’ as far as campers are concerned during the summer. But we still had wheels beneath us, because we decided to spend some hassle-free quality time together hitting the trails on our bikes instead. I probably shouldn’t admit to this, but after all the packing we’ve done over the years (unpacking is actually the worst for me!), it’s been quite liberating to only have to stick our bikes, a flask & sandwiches in the car before heading off.
In October 2017, we decided it was time for some distance travel and spent a month in my Aussie birthplace. We had plenty of adventures while we were away, and I’ve written about these in my book Up a Creek Down Under.
Anyway, as you can probably guess, I won’t be blogging about campervanning for the foreseeable future, but I’ve left this blog running for those who’d love to own a camper, or are just getting ‘on the road’. The blog is packed with info & pix for you to pick through, so hopefully there’ll be something to help or inspire along the way.
I hope you enjoy reading some of my work!
