Dinan, Brittany Dinan is known for its medieval ramparts, cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses.

Our 1st motorhome adventure of 2022

Our first motorhome trip of the new year is always a good one, and also an important one! We never leave our motorhome too long unused. Motorhomes are expensive vehicles and they need to be used frequently to get the value from them. Also, tyres and engines need to be used otherwise they degrade and you can also get battery problems. It's also a good idea to check that everything works before taking your motorhome on a longer journey. So,…

Home on the water!

It's been a while since we have been on a holiday without our motorhome but we found ourselves very excited about our adventure onboard a cruise ship! There are some locations better viewed from the sea and we felt the islands off the west coast of Scotland was just such a place. This 4 night cruise took us past some of the smaller, uninhabited Scottish islands as well some of the more well known ones such as Arran, Skye and…

Scotland motorhome tour

After cancelling our motorhome trip to France this September we had the discussion about where we could go instead.

For information about the NC 500 road trip take a look at the excellent Visit Scotland website. So, we set off on a 10 day tour of the west coast of Scotland hoping to imagine we…

Corona virus – Have we got the travel rules wrong?

I feel very sorry for anyone involved in the travel industry during the corona virus pandemic. Just as the travel industry starts to get back on its feet the government introduces new quarantine rules for anyone returning from France, The Netherlands and Malta. What I can't understand though is why they introduced the new rules at such short notice, leading to a mass scramble to return from holiday from these countries. The UK government also advised against all but essential…

Our motorhome destinations

With campsites in the UK opening again after the Coronavirus crisis and many European countries opening their borders again it feels like nearly every motorhome owner is getting ready to get back on the road. We last used our motorhome in March when we visited Burrs Country Park near Bury and we should be in Europe now, but that's now been delayed until September. We have visited our motorhome in storage a couple of times and even took a picnic…
