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

I've been caravanning since the early 80's and my wife Joanne and I now own a Buccaneer Schooner 2012 model.  Fantastic caravan and it offers all that we would wish for in a caravan. We go rallying every other weekend with a great circle of friends. Last Christmas / New year (2012 / 2013) we spent in Suffolk staying on two good CL's. Now in the process of planning our 2013 /2014 Christmas break....  where shall we go this time ! 

My wife Joanne has been caravanning for the last 7 years and we both love the freedom it gives with the home comforts that we enjoy. We've taken our 'van to France and to Southern Ireland - if you've never tried it you should give it a go !!

We're now just looking forward to being able to spend a lot more time touring Europe and re-discovering some of the gems that our country offers !!  :)

About Me

Hello

My name is Sue and I am married to Peter. We have been caravanning for  8 years now with our Bailey Senator Vermont called "Veronica". Back in the 70's and 80's we caravanned firstly with a Sprite Musketeer and then a. Robin, so we noticed a huge difference when we started again.

We enjoy travelling on the continent - have visited France,Austria, Italy and Spain. Met up with Dianne and her husband three years ago in Austria - we were one of the 4 Brit outfits on the site at Jodl!!!

Update - Now towing a Sterling Continental with a Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 !!
