21st January 2019 Last day in Roses, Spain

As we are beginning our journey home tomorrow we decided to visit the laundrette we saw nearby. We loaded up the panniers on my bike and set off for what was only a 5 minute bike ride.

Fortunately there was a small supermarket just over the road so while Angela was looking after the washing I went to get a few provisions for this evenings meal.

Washing done we returned to the van and while Angela was putting everything away I put the bikes onto the rack on the van and secured them. I stowed a few things away in the garage and then we went for a last walk along the beach as it was a lovely day.

This evening I cooked us a nice leg of chicken with vegetables which we washed down with a bottle of wine before an early night.

Tomorrow we start heading back to the UK!

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!
