After a slap up dinner in Ventura the night before at the Winchester bar and grill, breakfast the next day was an altogether more quirky affair as we headed to Cafe Nouveau, a trendy alternative eatery with a very European feel about it but with a huge American style welcome. Having packed up, our first… Continue reading Now for something a bit different…
One of the problems with work is that it gets in the way of life. This is even more true when you want to blog about your trips and you start looking back on your holidays snaps and realise that it’s been nearly 9 months! So has been the case with writing up our adventures… Continue reading SoCal dreaming….
Well to be accurate it was Mallorca but you get the idea none the less! This was another one of those last minute jaunts whilst Simon was away when I agreed to join an old friend and her little boy on a wallet busting last trip to the Balearics in late August. To be fair… Continue reading We’re all off to sunny Spain!
All good things must come to an end, and so it was we said auf wiedersehen to the land of forests and fantastic spa’s and headed north back to the UK and the real world of work. Opting to avoid the toll routes through France we quickly regretted our decision to use Belgian motorways as… Continue reading Back to reality!
It’s a few years since we were last in Wiesbaden but at the time it really struck us as somewhere we wanted to go back to….so we have!! Parking up at the aire just along from the open air swimming baths felt very familiar, right down to the warm welcome we got from the chap… Continue reading A tale of three rivers

However in this part of the world things aren’t always that simple and with the… Continue reading A trip down the Rhine
An odd title I must admit but after understanding the history of our next few days travelling I hope you agree, rather appropriate! First stop was Luxembourg – a small ancient duchy which gave its name to both a city and a country and only came into modern being following the Treaty of Vienna (1815)… Continue reading A journey through the treaty states
Those that know us well will realise that the Belgian city of Ypres is certainly no stranger to us. Yet in all these years we have never managed to actually stay overnight. It was with a certain degree of anticipation therefore that we pulled into our campsite for our three day stay. The site is… Continue reading Ypres and beyond
So we are finally back in Tilly again, off on our last jaunt to Europe before I go back to work. Unusually for us, we decided this time to spend our first night in the U.K. and after a short drive down to Kent, pulled into the caravan club site at Black Horse farm mid… Continue reading Bedankt Brugge!
