Hi From Andrew & Bongo!
« on: September 18, 2017, 06:22:06 AM »
Hi there!

This is B and I: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AmJpNDhugDrVw1ns831SIZIF7PDD
and I have spent the last year living off a minimal amount of cash to maximise my savings! I have also sold all stuff I haven't used for 6 months and now all my furniture!
So, in 6 weeks I leave my job and house (which I'll rent out for a small income) to head south with B in this beaut: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AmJpNDhugDrVxA7hq75sa3Yzk9aR

We're leaving around the start of November and only spend a couple of days in France before driving down the east coast of Spain. Planning to use free camping areas next to beaches and then get down to the south coast by December. Then hit Cadiz, Seville and Cordoba before threading our way into the Algarve and up the Portuguese coast, due back in UK around mid-March :(

We love hiking and running (but hiking more) and will hit plenty of coast paths and mountains for a good old yomp around!

By the way I'm 39 and from Exeter, Bongo is 6 and from Okehampton!

Maybe see some fellow 'vanners' around this winter...? :)

Hasta Luego x

Greetings & Welcome!

Sounds like a great time!  Did you do any sort of a build to the inside of your rig or ???

I'm a full timer from the USA, working full time while traveling too.

Keep us posted, and look forward to hearing more about your travels.

Cheers!
