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.

Whilst we’re back (however temporarily) in sunny Blighty, it seems like a good idea to set the site’s header pic to a random rotation through all the old images we’ve used whilst on the trip. If you’re wondering where any … Continue reading
