As you know I love a good planning session… But we have had to change our summer holiday plans. Well kind of….
So this weekend we attended The Lancs & Cheshire D.A. Family Christmas Party in the car park of a social club in Helsby Cheshire.
One of the things that we have found out that we like about owning a touring caravan is Social Camping. Rallies. Continue reading “Christmas 2018”
The first issue getting the van serviced was finding a time when both us and the engineer Adey, had time to actually do the service.
Today’s the day 1st December! And it’s raining. Adey needs to crawl around under the van to grease up the steadies and check all the chassis bolts etc…
We are now into our second week of ownership of the Ssangyong Korando.
We traded our 2012 Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6HDI for the 2.2D Auto 4X4 Korando. This is the first brand new car that I have ever bought, well not exactly brand new…. Continue reading “New Tow Car – Ssangyong Korando 2.2D ELX Auto 4X4”
At the end of our super summer 2018 trip to Argeles Sur Mer we decided that we want to do something different next year.
Whilst the Caravan Club have a “National” Rally The Camping & Caravan Club have a Feast of Lanterns.

Sunday was a beach day Harriet had decreed. Well ok armed with 2nd larger umbrella off we went.
Down on the beach it was windy. Well a strong breeze. Umbrellas were being chased and inflatable unicorns were taking flight…. So no umbrella. I decided to get out the action camera and snorkel and go find some fish to film.
After a day at the beach well ok a few hours on Thursday and a trip to a French Hypermarche it’s up early for a drive to Barcelona. We had tickets booked for 10:30 at the Sagrada Familiar. The turreted Basilica designed by Gaudi and still as yet unfinished.
It’s time to change the car. For most people it’s a case of how much you can afford+how much milage+ running costs+ nice looking = your choice of a Corsa or Fiat 500 etc…. No such luck for caravanners. We are looking at facts and figures tow car awards, reviews, top speed is generally not a factor but how many Torques the car has and it’s kerbweight definitely are.
