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.

It’s been a while since we last posted, just as we were leaving our hibernation cave to go back to “civilisation”. I think the fact that we couldn’t quite summon up the enthusiasm to nail a post together says quite … Continue reading
