10 Days to go!

We’re taking strain!  Wish we were on our way already.  So many last minute things to deal with. 

George says that we’ve collected just too much stuff in our 46 years of marriage! He’s right. All we’ve done for the past six weeks is pack, Pack and PACK!

Thanks to Memory and Chris for all your help.

We’ve learnt a lot by preparing our house for a years rental. Also the preparations for living in the confined space of a motor vehicle for a year has made us more aware of what one really needs to get by. In these times of rampant consumerism we have been programmed into buying unnecessarily.

We are spending two nights in Arniston with a number of special friends who are going to be  sorely missed by us,  combining this short  trip with final testing of our preparedness and just spending some precious time with all of them. The weather prediction is rain, so we’ll be able to test the mods made since our last trip and a bit of chilling.

Although we never achieved our original goal of reaching Norway overland through Africa, our experience was so unexpectedly rewarding that we've not been able to settled down again! So we added new destinations to our lust for adventure. We hope that you will join us in sharing new exciting places and encounters with the amazing people we meet along the way.

  1. Thank you for spending special quality time with us. We will miss you dearly. Have safe travels with lots of wonderful memories you share with us on your blog. God bless

  2. Hi Sol & Ian. William and I set off on a similar adventure in May 2009 – left the UK in a campervan – then travelled very slowly through France and Spain – finally settling in an avo grove on the Costa del Sol, where we remained for three years with two rescue dogs and some cats. A year ago we put our van ‘Nessie’ in storage and set up a base in the UK – currently we try to share our time between UK and Spain. I’ve had a blog for years – will post about your adventure as I think some of my followers will enjoy following you.
