6th October 2012 Euro Tunnel delay!

It all began so well as we left Hereford last Thursday and headed for an overnight stay in Chertsey.

Being right under the flight path it was rather noisy but we still managed to sleep well after a meal and the film Pirates of The Caribbean, can’t remember which one!

Friday morning we left for the Caravan Club site Blackhorse Farm in Folkestone where we renewed our membership.

We had a meal in the local pub then went back to the site for a shower and relaxing evening.

We are now in the terminal of the Euro Tunnel with a two hour delay due to a train that has stopped in the tunnel!

We were due to leave at 10:20 am and as yet we do not have a boarding time!

The beauty of living and travelling in your home means that these occasional delays do not really cause concern.

Instead of heading for Venlo we may have an overnight stop in France.

We will keep you posted 🙂

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!
