Breaking the van, bodge jobs and the south of France

Now that we have left Chamonix we seem to be on the move a little more, once again this trip will be mobile and we will be travelling to various new places, although where exactly we don't know yet as we are making it up a little, rather than sticking to a rigid itinerary. That... Continue Reading →

Keeping van life reality in check!

Before we left on this trip, I obviously did a lot of searching for van and vanlife, related things, as this is what we were setting out to do, and the internet can be full of useful information if you look in the right places. However, it is also filled with a lot of crap,... Continue Reading →

A Request from a Follower!

As the title says, I have had a request from a follower via email to share more about who I am, how I got here and where I am going. All these things that have not been fully covered in the blog as of yet, and were totally overlooked by me! I hope they don't... Continue Reading →

Running Down the Down Days

So on here I have posted much about the days when there is lots going on, I have talked about life in the van a little and although there are adventures taking place pretty regularly out here, there are also days where the sun does not shine and life is put on hold, such as... Continue Reading →

I put this thing together with my co pilot Chewie, I mean Jess. So there was no doubt there would be some problems. First off was the waste drainage and jerry... Continue Reading →

There’s More to Dijon than Mustard!

So after a trip into Fontainbleau, we set out for the Retour de Sources climbing festival at Grand Paraquet. There was a full competition boulder wall set up, and although the weather had changed for the worse we decided to stick around and wait for the worse to pass. Once it did the competitors got...

Sleepless in Fontainebleau!

Quite bloody literally, I drove through the night after getting off the ferry. We decided against using the toll roads and taking the extra hour on the journey to save some money. So we arrived in Font at around 7am with zero sleep. We went to bed for a few hours but in the end... Continue Reading →

It’s The Final Countdown!

I have been on many adventures in my life, and some of those I have started to tell you about in this blog. All have had different beginnings, however I find that you always have an idea in your minds eye of what this will look and feel like. For example when I was sixteen... Continue Reading →

Death by Insurance!

Woo! Van life! Living the dream! Or so you think… There is so much nonsense, poppycock, hogwash and other nicer ways of saying bullshit that paves the way to such a lifestyle change. Even this cheap lifestyle cannot be lived without a few large expenses and stacks of paperwork! An onwards rant from the earlier... Continue Reading →
