Yep, you read that correctly, this is the end of the road for us!
Exactly two years ago, we set off from Colchester on a trip around Europe in our van. We’ve had a fantastic time visiting 25 countries, staying at 331 different camperstops and driving 28,481 miles (or 45,854 km) in the process.
We’ve had to return to the UK to get the van MOT’d, and had originally planned to spend the next six months touring around Britain. However our tenants will not be renewing, and so with no rental income we’ve decided that this will be the end of the road – we’ll be moving back home when the tenants leave at the end of the month and returning to real life.
We did discuss whether we should keep the van, but we decided that there wouldn’t really be much point as there are so many other places further afield that we’d really like to visit, so we’ll be putting the van up for sale once we’ve sorted ourselves out.
The main reason for keeping a blog was so that we could look back on our trip in years to come. We’ve visited so many places over the past two years that even now it’s becoming difficult to remember exactly everywhere we have been, and so the blog’s already come in useful.
I know from looking at the behind-the-scenes stats that many people from across the world have been following our blog, so we hope you have enjoyed reading our updates, and that maybe we have possibly encouraged some of you to consider taking the plunge yourselves and go off travelling – we can definitely recommend it.
If anybody has questions about anything to do with motorhoming, travelling around Europe, or the technicalities of setting up and maintaining a WordPress blog, then please feel free to get in touch via the contact page on the dropdown menu, and we’ll get back to you.
