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.

Another chapter of the trip closes … we have been zigzagging our way around the countries of Former Yugoslavia since April. There’s only one country we didn’t get to and not everyone agrees that it is a country – Kosovo. … Continue reading
