Destination: Brighton

Since Lucy's friend Andy was away on holiday, we decided to pick up the camper van a day early... we were off to Brighton! Sat-nav said that the journey would be 4-hours (from Sheffield), adding an hour for pit-stops - 5-hours ... I didn't expect the M25 would add an extra hour to the drive! 6-hours later... we arrived in Brighton! Welcomed by Rich & Jo, we took a stroll along the seafront. The girls had fun…

A revised plan

The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray\n\nWe've revised the route and timings of our trip.\n\nBy coming up to Liverpool earlier (and spending a little more time with family), we can use the camper van at a more leisurely pace later on.\n\nSo far we've been to the Liverpool World Museum (twice) and the newly refurbished Liverpool Central…

VW Campervan Trip 2013

Given that things like Facebook and Twitter have seemed to replace our blog over the past few years, I've been looking for an excuse to breathe some life back into it. So what better way than to post about our upcoming holiday! In a couple of weeks time, we'll be borrowing a classic VW campervan from Rich (my business partner) and taking it on a road trip! So far the plan is set off from Bristol;…
