About Me

We have been caravanning in this country for a long time - as a child and now as parents of 3 grown up children. Now the children do their own thing for holidays we are venturing further afield. We spent a week in Germany and a week in Holland last year. Our first time touring abroad. We loved Holland so have decided to go back this year and see much more of the country. Next year we are planning to drive to Italy, and this is the reason we were interested in your website. We find it very useful to follow hints and tips from fellow caravanners who have found the pitfalls and can help us to avoid them.

We are fortunate to live close to the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales so can get away to either location for short weekend breaks. My husbands job prevents us from going away every weekend but we look forward to retirement in a few years when we can just up and go. We love sitting outside our caravan with a beer, watching the world go by and chatting to whoever goes past. We love being in the open air with no chores and no worries and we love the freedom to tour, visit different places or visit nowhere! Whatever we feel like at the time.

About Me

Now retired and recently back into caravanning after a twenty odd year break.
We bought  a new two berth Sterling Elite this year and have been out in it six times including two weeks in France. We like to go to places where there is relatively easy cycling and good scenery, ie canal or riverside cycle paths.
