6th October On the move again!

Hello Everyone!

Well since our trailer incident on our way to Hereford I can now report that all has now been fixed, the bike has been loaded onto said trailer and we are off to Oxford tomorrow morning.

We would like to thank Bill, Lynne and the team at Hereford for a lovely stay and we cannot wait to begin our contract here next year. All their hard work is paying off as the site is looking great and they have had a good season.

Anyone who enjoys fishing would like this site as there is a 3 acre lake that is well stocked. Even if you are not into fishing it is  lovely to walk around the edge watching the wildlife.

As well as the ducks there are a number of breeds of chickens roaming around. They seem to live in harmony with Sam & Frank the resident cats. Sam was on my lap earlier this evening having some fuss. My challenge next year is to get Frank on my lap!

Since we have been here the bike has had a couple of runs and today we went into Hereford for a quick visit.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
