Around the middle of 2016 my wife and I had become increasingly jaded by conventional holidays, so what to do? Caravanning did seem to offer a simple solution to that dilemma for we both have fond memories – possibly distorted by time – of holidays spent in caravans by the sea. Could a touring caravan offer a new challenge as well as relief from being packed into increasingly smaller aircraft seats, or extruded through ever longer security procedures?
Buy a sleeping box to drag around the countryside what could be easier; how naive we were!
These tales record both the enjoyment gained, the mistakes we have made, together with the lessons learnt and tales of journeys undertaken as we wobble off into an uncertain future.
I hope some of these notes will be of help to others embarking on a similar path or perhaps, and much more likely, they will provide us with a disjointed record to laugh at in darker times when we question our sanity.
