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.

Some very good friends of ours, Louis and Ana, together with their kids, Reg and Romi, have been spending every summer for years back in Ana’s homeland of Croatia. They’ve been telling us how wonderful it is, but until this … Continue reading
