7th October Back in our home town:-)

This morning after breakfast we popped over to the office to have a cuppa with Bill & Lynn as we were leaving. When we got there we were joined by the rest of the team apart from Paul & Sally who were on a day off.

After putting the world to rights we wandered over to see Paul & Sally to say our farewells and to wish them all the best on their holiday.

We set off and because of the problem we had with the trailer on the way down we were both a bit anxious, especially as I had fitted the new hubs myself. We pulled into a layby after a mile or so to check the straps were still taut and to give the wheels on the trailer a check over……all seemed ok so onwards to Oxford we went, stopping to re fuel on the way.

We eventually got to Oxford and Ali made us a nice cup of tea. After a quick chat we got parked up, removed the bike from the trailer and got the van ready for living in.

We are off to my (Dean’s) sisters for tea tonight and a few drinks maybe!

More soon…………………………..

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!
