What’s this blog, then?
This blog’s about our life on the open road.
Who are we? Adrian and Ellie and a big red campervan.
Where are we? We’re on the road. Somewhere. Or will be, soon.
Where are we going? Ask us tomorrow or the next day.
Where have we been, and what have we done? That’s what this blog’s about.

I found this Colourboration theme quite a tricky one and it took a few false starts before I was able to create something I was happy to share, only just making our deadline, but enjoying the challenge. Here in Croatia, … Continue reading
