Brittany 2010:
9 Days Touring The Coast

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Last September's successful tour to West Wales gave us confidence that the van could handle reasonable distances with no problem. So we crossed the Channel for nine days in Brittany, but will the weather be as good? Our journey takes us westwards along the coast to Saint-Brieuc onward up to the pink granite coast. »

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Latitude 2010 Festival, Suffolk, England

Sunday, July 25, 2010

This past weekend we took the bus to our first big music festival. Although we usually like to use the campervan to get away from people we thought we should give the festival thing a go. So we joined thirty-five thousand people in the rolling grounds at Henham Park in Suffolk for Latitude. »

For our main Summer break we decided to visit some areas of Britain we hadn't been before and after some thought and research we chose to take an 11 day tour across to the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales. En route we would visit Vanfest 2009, the Brecon Beacons and Forest of Dean. »

A Weekend In The Shires,
May 2009

Friday, May 15, 2009

Like this year, May 2009 was sunny and warm. Looking back through the photos and videos of our short tour through Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, I thought it was worth filling in the gap in the record by making a video of our quiet, relaxing weekend in the heart of the English countryside. »

Friday 12 – Sunday 14 Sept 2008 You can read about the last time we went to Vanfest in 2001 also on this site. It was quite a different experience this time. The main difference this year was the rain and the mud. Having arrived so late after work last time we decided to... »

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Friday 22 – Tuesday 26 Aug 2008 It’s been a four years exactly since our last adventure in the Devon 21, so it was with excitement that we headed out on the road again for the first trip since the completion of the major bodywork restoration. Our trip this late Summer Bank Holiday was... »

Back On The Road!

Sunday, August 3, 2008

It’s been a long and uncertain road to recovery, but on Saturday the Devon21 was back in action for the first time since we put him in to storage. That was May 2005 and we were off to travel Australia in a Toyota Hiace. Over three years later and with a lot of hard... »

Saturday 28 – Tuesday 31 Aug 2004 A busy summer in London and holidaying Spain meant that we hadn’t been able to have the number of adventures in the Devon21 that we’d hoped. So we jumped at the oportunity to get away in the Fun Bus for the last Bank Holiday weekend of the... »

Adventure 9: Suffolk Coast Pt 1
