Hello and Welcome!

Hello and welcome to our personal diary/blog of our adventures which cover trips around Europe in our campervan, backpacking in Asia, and now cycling in Europe and around our home in Wiltshire.

We hope you like the new format of the site.  Hopefully it’ll be a bit more interactive as you are able to comment on every page – and be assured we do read all comments and love hearing from you!
