Paddling - Christmas Day 2017.


During nearly fifty years of marriage we have both enjoyed traveling, during the early years in the UK and later abroad. Between us we have visited (in no particular order) France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Litchenstien, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Republic of Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Poland, Ukraine, Egypt, Jordan, The Gambia, Canada and Greece.

The end of May 2011 saw both of us retired at a young enough age to do something with the time we have left. We have decided to travel - if finances allowed it would be world wide and first class, but they will not, so it will be a caravan and mainland Europe with (if those pesky finances permit) an occasional “cattle class” flight to somewhere we have always wanted to see.

Unfortunately Sue being enticed back to work scuppered the year July 2012 to July 2013 but was in it’s way fortuitous as, by our return to the road in August 2013 we had had to replace both car and caravan.

Sue has always wanted to visit New Zealand and in 2012 we had received an open invitation to visit Sue’s American friend Joan, who lived on South Island. We were planning to take up that invite and also visit Australia in late 2013 and/or early 2014 but, unfortunately, Joan suffered a family bereavement which has necessitated her returning to America for at least a year.

Last winter (2013/14) instead of swimming with the fishes on the great barrier reef we went back to Spain and Portugal (for the story of that adventure click HERE)

Summer 2014 saw us up in the land of the midnight sun - Norway. Going north of the Arctic Circle has enabled us become members of The Order of Blue Nosed Caravanners (for the story of that adventure click HERE

In 2014 we visited the most northeasterly country in (western) Europe - Norway, and the most southwesterly country in Europe - Portugal and every country in-between.
