Summer Holidays away in the campervan have given us some of the greatest memories any family could wish. This year will be our third summer with the Van and our furthest expedition to date. As with any older vehicle ,it takes a while to build your confidence that the van will make it beyond the end of the road. So our first camping expedition was to the intriguingly named "Strawberry Woods " Campsite a record breaking 12 miles away..ha ha. It was a great success and spurred us on to go farther a field that summer. Last year we did a grand tour of Wales, through some amazing countryside and up some steep mountains (slowly) followed later in the summer with a jaunt down to the Isle of Wight.
This year however we have set our sights further afield ....FRANCE.. Gulp. Now with such an expedition planning is the key to ensure a successful trip. So I employed the services of friendly travel specialist.....other wise know as the Mrs.... Laura just loves trawling the internet looking for the best deals, places to stay and visit and all that insurance malarkey.
All I have to do is ensure the Van is up to the trip and with that in mind I will be doing several jobs over the coming months in preparation for the "Grand Tour". So tune in next time to read about some of the jobs to be done on the van in readiness for "France 2011"
