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.

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

Hi  

We've recently changed from a caravan to a motorhome and, being retired, we're now able to spend quite long periods travelling. We enjoy touring round Europe and are currently (May 2017) on a seven week trip to France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Germany (and maybe Slovenia).

We also like travelling round the UK and, having recently moved from Wales to Somerset, are exploring the southwest, bit by bit. 

We're enjoying the ease of driving and the swift set-up of the motorhome and changing our way of camping to visit more places via footwork and public transport.

About Me

My wife (Mrs Benn) and I currently own a 2014 Sprite Major 4 FB which we tow behind a 2008 Freelander 2 TD4. This was a new purchase last September having strayed to the 'dark side' of motorhoming for 5 years.

We had toured with caravans before and after many adventures in France and UK decided that a caravan would again better fit our requirements. (or so Mrs Benn tells me)

Currently planning 2016 tours to Yorkshire, Devon, France & Spain next Winter.....wonderful times !!

About Me

10/10/16. I'm recently retired and am starting to make the transition from 2 to 3 week trips during holidays from work to 3 to 6 month trips.  Spent 3 months in Spain and Portugal in the Spring and enjoyed every minute. I am planning a 6 monther around Spain and France in the new year.  Will I come back?
