Sunday 22nd June - evening Arrive in Skye with no plans. Drove 13 miles down single lane to Elgol. Gorgeous harbour. Went for walk, climbing over rocks on beach. Dead end road. On way back, parked up by Loch Slapin for our first night of wild camping. Monday 23rd June Woken up at 5am by a sheep using van as a scratch post. Set off planning to stop at Broadford, second largest village on island but nothing really there. At Sligachan we wandered along pretty stream and made statues out of the rocks/stones. Moe had to keep redoing his as his competitive streak meant he had to make the tallest. Carried on to Neist Point, furthest point west on Skye. Unfortunately, the cloud had closed in on us and couldn't see lighthouse. Stayed for lunch but ... read more

Saturday 21 We awoke to sunshine and after breaky cycled to the local Flea Market for a bit of retail therapy. Once packed we headed off with Fort William entered into the sat nav. On route we stopped and took in the views at the Black Mount overlooking LochTulla for lunch then continuing through stunning scenery in Glen Coe arriving at Glen Nevis campsite beneath the Ben Nevis mountain range. Already the views have been amazing and not one mile of our journey has disappointed. after booking into camp site we went for a drive up the valley to visit Lower Falls waterfall right in the heart of the national park. Pasta and garlic bread for tea and a walk to the local pub for a couple of beers. A great day! Sunday 22 A grimmer ... read more

Headed off after the football disappointment and made good time getting to Stafford motorway services. Bedded down by 2am and awoke fresh at 7 ready to go. The journey up was bearable and we stopped off for lunch in Penrith and found a nice Thai doing lunchtime specials. We set off after lunch and got to our campsite at the base of Loch Lomond in Balloch about 4pm. We've been for a bike ride and had fresh wild sea bass for dinner. looking forward to getting to Fort William tomorrow when the adventure really begins.... read more

Europe August 24th 2013

A slow start to the day with the usual chores carried out before heading up to track. Just practice day today so not so crowded. Pleased to find the two mile journey to track was covered by a free shuttle bus so made use of it and saved a cycle. Watched F1, GP2, GP3 and Porche cup racing until about 5 then headed back. Track was a little daunting to walk round on first day so we found a spot close to our entrance. Racing was great and the atmosphere awesome even on practice day. Made a few more friends on campsite and sat drinking beer and exchanging stories till about 10pm. Party went on for a few more hours but with two big days ahead we hit the sack early. Yes even me!... read more

Europe August 22nd 2013

Had a lovely day yesterday driving along the river Mosel and through the vineyards until we found ourselves looking down on the beautiful town of Cochem with it's great looking castle. Headed straight to the Wildpark at the top of another peak and spent a couple of hours viewing wild boar, goats, various types of deer, wolves, etc, birds of prey and paradise with the highlight being brown bears. Not exactly what I would describe as a Wildpark but there was a roller coaster that had stunning views and a log flume that helped to keep us cool. Went for to an Asian restaurant in the evening in Cochen. Drove to Francorchamps and picked up F1 tickets. After a bit of struggle managed to find the L'Eau de Rouge campsite and have our little space for ... read more

Now in the Mosel wine region and the lanscape, culture and tourist's have changed. It's g one from young families to old wino's like us. Drive today was about 2 hours in total so a fairly relaxed day. After a cycle to the town and a walk around we settled in for the evening with Chris on the laptop, Sue head in her puzzle book and me doing Blog and facebook. Camp site is right on the river so its been quite nice watching all the river traffic as the sun set behind the hills. No fixed plan for tomorrow so just a few more miles to get out the way to get closer to Spa on Friday. Excitement growing and crossing fingers for the weather.... read more

Europe » Germany » Hesse » Wiesbaden August 19th 2013

Unfortunately high ropes shut on a Monday but as wet probably a good thing o th the safety front. Looked round outlet shops which looked like a Disney designer had a say but nothing to our taste or price range. Spent a couple of hours looking round new models of motor homes. Great to have some many in one place but chose ours as having best layout. Did long drive to past Frankfurt found nice site. Lido in walking distance. Chris joined the other 4 brave people for a swim. After a rainbow the evening turned out nice. I... read more

Today we came to the end of the Romantic road and with a little sadness planned our next few days. We decided on a camp site for the night just down the road from an outlet superstore. So retail therapy planned for morning plus a visit to a high ropes centre just round the corner. After enjoying a very good meal at the on site restaurant we headed back to the van to watch a video, the chosen video being Ted. Ill tell you what I think about it tomorrow. Night night campers.... read more

Sues stopped blogging coz she says I have more humour. I guess as I have spell checker on my phone I can come across funny rather than stupid. Rothenburg was as expected a very impressive walled town full of American and Japanese visitors, bloody tourists. They did however bring life to the streets and I'm sure thier revenue was appreciated. After a couple of hours of sight seeing we set of for Lauda Konigshofen an insignificant town on our route but one with a great outdoor lido. To our surprise it was free to get in as it was a family fun day and part of the entertainment was a free show watching adolescent youths do BMX stunts of a ramp into the pool, only in Germany. Although there was free parking overnight the spot seemed ... read more
