Looking Ahead - The year of the Campervan

As we approach the start of 2014, our thoughts are turning to plans for the new year.  Ours will revolve around the delivery of our new campervan - called 'El Nido' - in late February.  We're really excited and are already planning our trips away next year.  Cathy also reaches her half-century in May, so that will be a time of celebration (and no doubt some gentle ribbing!).

So there's plenty to plan for next year:

  • Our first trips in El Nido - we're planning to make the most of Brit Stops to allow us to travel regularly at minimal cost.
  • Cathy's 50th Birthday - a friends & family get together followed by a week in the campervan in Swaledale at the time when all the meadows are in flower (that's what she wants!).
  • Going to our friend's annual Camp Out in their field in West Sussex - in the luxury of El Nido of course!
  • The Rewind North Festival in Cheshire over the August bank holiday with our friends Ian & Steph and their motorhome.
  • A couple of weeks touring Europe in September - destination unknown but so what, we don't need to plan beyond tunnel crossing dates!
  • And hopefully quite a few long weekends in the van, living the life we want to lead.
So we have an exciting 2014 to look forward to.  Whatever your plans, we hope you have a very healthy, happy and enjoyable New Year.
