England

This is a surprise section as we did not think we would be writing our memories about motorhoming in the UK.  We have been back in England now for a month, which was not the plan.  Also, more interestingly we have been living in the motorhome too, bar a few nights in our families’ spare rooms.

This impromptu tour of the UK has taken us to spending time in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Lincolnshire, the Peak District and we are currently in Kent.  To cut a long story short, we also find ourselves employed by the Camping and Caravanning Club as Holiday Site Assistants and we are currently winter site sitting until Christmas.  The views here are amazing as we are a stone’s throw away from the sea and we enjoy both sun rises and sunsets from the comfort (?) of our van, although the weather is somewhat more challenging than sunnier climes of south Europe. An electric heater has been required for the first time in 2016!  It’s a funny old world isn’t it and it seems, for a short while at least, we will explore the world of motorhoming and camp sites in the UK, postponing Portugal until January…
