Many of my regular visitors to our blog already know the background to our travels and what we are up to at the moment, but I thought it useful to provide an update. Since starting the blog we have been on two longish tours, several shorter ones and many weekends and odd one night trips out in the VW motorhome. That motorhome has now been sold to make way for a Mercedes Hymer Starline 510 which now better suits our current needs. The addition of a grandson to the family meant the need for a vehicle with three proper seat belts and a bed for him too!
I named the site ‘2012 tour’ when I set up the site and hadn’t thought about the fact that after 2012 the site might seem ‘out of date’. Its not possible or practical to change the name of the site so I just have to remind people that it is still maintained and has become a place to post information about our further travels through 2013 and more recently. Our ‘long’ trips have ceased but we still use the motorhome on a very regular basis. We plan to visit Germany again in September but that trip will be just under three weeks in duration.
As a quick re-cap we have visited France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium and of course England, Scotland and Wales. We covered approximately 18000 miles during those trips in the VW. We will be racking up more in the Hymer and will keep you posted.
