13th March 2018 Zaragoza to Aire De Libourne (Camping Car Park).


After Breakfast and emptying the relevant containers! our planned journey is approximately 341 miles. Including stops it should take us about seven hours.

As we were nearing the Spanish/French border the weather began to change for the worse. Overcast with  a few rain showers and the occasional sunny spells. That said it was still a pleasant journey with no traffic problems.

We eventually arrived at Aire De Libourne at 4pm. Angela paid at the meter and we parked up next to another English motorhome. We had a chat about the days journeys and where we were heading. Us back to England and they were off to Spain! They then went off to explore and we had our tea and rested for the evening.

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!
