Welcome to our campervan adventure blog for all those inspiring motorhome and vanlife adventures.
First of all, if you’re thinking of buying a motorhome or campervan, we’ve got lots of useful tips.
More importantly, we love everything about campervan, motorhome and vanlife travels, therefore, we love writing about them!
In 2005, after years of touring caravan holidays, we bought our very first motorhome.
Meanwhile, we’d opened a motorhome hire business, consequently, adding to our motorhome knowledge!
However, in 2016, we decided to close the office for the last time, concentrating, more importantly, on a life beyond work.
We loved motorhome road trips, living the vanlife and campervan travels, subsequently, it was time for us to start exploring more and hit the road!
Heading off into Europe, we were on our way to a quieter life in our campervan, when the unexpected happened.
It was a few months later, when we opened a surprise e-mail that changed our lives forever.
We’d won flights to Sydney, Australia, in a competition for Heathrow Airport’s 70th Birthday!
Starting off in Sydney, our incredible 6 month, 23,000km road trip in a tiny campervan, took us across the wilds of Australia.
When you have children living in New Zealand, where better to buy and convert a panel van?
Our self-build was a labour of love and, further more, it completed Nigel’s big ambition of building his own van.
So, with our LDV panel van conversion, we can now enjoy all the incredible sights of New Zealand from our own home on wheels.
Sonia loves a travel diary, so began writing about our motorhome travels back in 2005, furthermore, with articles published in Practical Motorhome Magazine, it’s a great way to share in the adventure.
We’ve always been asked about our motorhome, adventures with a campervan and all about travels in a van, so what better way to share with you all than our very own website and blog!
Join us on our travels through Europe, in our Sprinter4x4 and down under in our self-build NZ van.
We hope to inspire you as much as we’ve been inspired by others.
Bon Voyage and here’s to a Life on the Road,
From the Campervan Castaways,
Nigel and Sonia
Life, as we know, is no rehearsal, so we’re jumping off the merry go round, living life as we want to live it, in the way we want and enjoying the life together that we have.
Take a look at our own van here, find out more about the specification, interior and exterior design and how we came to choose this model.
