11th December 2022 Driving to Schneverdingen

After a quick breakfast we stowed things away and were on the road at 8am.

It was a stress free driving day stopping a few times on the way. The weather got better the nearer we got to our final destination.

After 4 hours and 311 Kms we finally pulled up on Brian & Heike’s drive.

We hadn’t seen Heike since our last visit in 2018 so first thing was to have a great big hug.

We went in for a brew and met the three dogs. Murphy, Piper and Meghan. There was another dog we were hoping to see once more and that was Tessa but unfortunately she passed away recently.

While the dogs were taken out for a walk we sorted our van out as we were going to be here for the next few weeks.

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!
