My name is Lydia, I live in beautiful South Norfolk UK 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 over 100,000 miles in 4 Vans, Daisy, Bluebell, Ruby and Gandalf(retrospectively). At the beginning of 2017 we decided to take the plunge and downsize to Ruby the VW. We enjoyed many trips over the 3.5 years in Ruby, but in September 2021 we upgraded her to a VWT5 SWB, named Gandalf.
In 2015, for our honeymoon, we embarked on the trip of a lifetime to the USA travelling over 4 weeks from New York to San Fransisco on Amtrak trains with Great Rail Journeys. Little did we know, this would unleash a new passion for worldwide travel and adventures, and was the start of a yearly GRJ escorted tour for us, alongside our regular motorhome trips. In 2016 we travelled around Japan on the Bullet Trains, in 2017 we visited Incredible India and undertook our very first safari, and in 2018 we are undertaking a Grand Tour of China.
This blog will document not only our travels in our motorhome(s) but also cover our fantastic voyages further afield. 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..!)
If you see us on our travels, give us a wave! Or even better… mines a pint!
