About Us

Hi Everyone! 
My name is Lydia, I live in beautiful South Norfolk with my hubby Keith, and our pampered pooch, Jazz and we are freelance musicians/teachers.

Having spent the majority of my childhood holidays under canvas here in Blighty and France, I suppose I could be classed as a well seasoned camper. We’ve been motor homing since the Summer of 2010  and have covered about 40,000 miles in 2 vans, Daisy and Bluebell (retrospectively). At the beginning of 2017 we decided to take the plunge and downsize to a new van.

In 2015 we embarked on the trip of a lifetime to the USA travelling over 4 weeks from New York to San Fransisco on Amtrak trains and in 2016 we were lucky enough to travel in Japan on the Bullet Trains.

This blog will document not only our travels in our motorhome(s) but also cover our fantastic voyages further afield including our American Adventures on Amtrak and Discovering Japan Train by Bullet Train. In the van, we’ve travelled to the most north westerly point in the UK (the Butt of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides), as far South as the Med and Pisa, as far west as the Welsh coast and as far East as Sheringham and Cromer (granted we are nearly there already..!)

Things you will learn about Keith and I if you can bear my waffling…

1) we are pretty spontaneous

2) we have lots of holidays (we are both self employed, and our work is mainly based around the school terms – lucky for us..)

3) I am not lost for words very often… in fact I am a bit of a rambler… sorry about that

4) We name everything… and I mean EVERYTHING!

5) I’m rather keen on taking photos and I go wild for Cath Kidston

6) We love motorhoming, and we think the British Isle is flipping gorgeous. But we have a soft spot for Europe too, and don’t mind partaking in a few glasses of French plonk. Or Italian, if we must!

 If you see us on our travels, give us a wave! Or even better… mines a pint!

  1. Hi Lydia and Keith,
    We will be going to Monaco en-route along the med. I saw in your blog that you parked in Monaco’s underground car park. Does it take motorhomes 7.5 metres and can you remember the approx daily cost please.
    Thanks Stuart

    1. Hi Stuart,
      I’ll be honest I’m not sure about taking a 7.5m motorhome into the parking at Monaco. We’re just under 6mtrs and I wouldn’t have wanted to be much bigger. The trouble is it wasn’t very easy to find, and we ended up driving round a couple of times looking. Then when we got in, I don’t remember there being a massive amount of excess room – from memory we fitted pretty snugly.
      I think we payed around €10 and we followed signs (although there were hit and miss!) for Fontvielle. It’s worth a drive through Monaco at the least, and if you manage to see signs for Fontville give it a go – there were staff in the carpark who a
      guided us in so presumably they would turn you away if they didn’t think you could fit

      Happy travels, the med is a wonderful place for motorhomes 🙂
