Tuesday 29th May 2018 “Travelling is not just about the places you go, it is about the people you meet on the way!” Not bad as a truism, just a little too long to have written on the back of your motorhome. Our ferry trip, or cruise as Wendy likes to call it, across the Adriatic … Continue reading Ten Countries!
Saturday 26th May 2018 Today is Day 20 and signifies that we are now halfway through the continental leg of our trip. Our van has clocked up 1736 miles since we left Derby almost three weeks ago. We called in at the house of our host to settle up for the extra night we stayed and … Continue reading Croatia Hwala!
Thursday 24th May 2018 If you have had the enthusiasm to read yesterday’s instalment yet, you will know that this week Wendy and I have become wrapped up in a search for ‘authentic’ Croatia. Well (spoiler alert!) today we found it. Our early morning walk (before it got too hot for Alf) took us up the … Continue reading ‘Authenticity’ Discovered!
Tuesday 22nd May 2018 I am sorry I haven’t been in touch recently; it’s been a bit harum scarum this side of the Adriatic, let me bring you up-to-date… You left us in Kamp Njivice on the island of Krk. We liked it there very much, but we had places to go and so on Tuesday … Continue reading Six Campsites in Three Days
Sunday 20th May 2018 Yesterday, I signed off just as the rain and hail began pelting down on me, under the awning where I was exiled, as Wendy was ensconced in the van watching the royal wedding. The rain didn’t let up until late in the evening when, to fight the cabin fever, we strolled down … Continue reading The Sunshine After the Rain
Saturday 19th May 2018 Today’s blog is sponsored by Daren Fasey, as thanks for baling us out with a blip at home yesterday. We have been in Camping Blednow for 48 hours and a jolly nice place it is too for not doing too much but having a good time. It is so nice in fact … Continue reading Beautiful Bled
Thursday 18th May 2018 The sun is slowly setting behind us, casting fingers of shadows across the lake towards the island church that is glowing in the dusk. We are sitting at a table on the deck outside the Camping Bled Bar enjoying a well-earned glass of local wine and making the most of a memorable … Continue reading An Eventful Day
Wednesday 16th May 2018 It rained all night and it rained all day. The emergency brollies had a good work out today, from Alf’s early morning stroll to his evening jaunt. The only good news is that the rain from my tame cumulo-nimbus seems to have washed any Narrativium out of the works, otherwise Wendy would … Continue reading Into Salzburg We Did Go
Tuesday 15th May 2018 I have often wondered if I might be a modern-day incarnation of a rain god? Back in ancient times, people would have prayed to me or offered sacrifices in the hope that I might bring rain to water the crops or ruin a neighbouring village’s cricket match. In the twenty-first century it … Continue reading From Switzerland to Salzburg
Monday 14th May 2018 So the chief blogger is having a night off and it’s the return of the ‘lady in the van!’ I’ve been allowed this responsibility as today didn’t quite live up to expectations because Howard wanted to take me back to Lake Bodensee as it was full of good memories from his time … Continue reading Monday is Washing Day
