Hello Baby!

We have a new member of the team!

Say hello to Stella..


Stella is our first child, she was born at home in a birthing pool using the hypnobirthing method, if you’ve never heard of it look it up, I cannot praise hypnobirthing and home birth enough, if you invest the time it pays dividends, Lolly did an amazing job and brought our baby into the world without the aid of any pain relief in a familiar, calm and safe environment.

With the arrival of Stella the blog will most likely take a slightly different twist, how to travel in a camper van with a baby I suspect but Stella will very much be a part of our continued adventures, which might need to just plan a little better!

And we’re off!

So the time of year has come for one of our two yearly birthday trips, usually this trip in March to celebrate my birthday will involve a drive far north of the M25 in search of mountains to climb, trails to ride and paths to walk in generally the worst of the British weather.

This year however we’re heading south, Lolly is 32 weeks pregnant and wasn’t massively up for mountains or mountain bikes so we’ve jumped on a ferry to the Isle of Wight to stay at a campsite right by the beach and enjoy some easy going walks around the countryside, as I write there are patches of blue sky and the sun is doing it’s very best to shine.

Unlike all our previous trips there is an air of calm prior to our departure even though we are running 20 mins late, I think I’ve finally realised that getting annoyed isn’t going to change the fact that we are late, if anything it’s a hindrance and just makes things misearable all round.

Whilst I was fairly confident we would miss the ferry we made it by the skin of our teeth and are now on our way across the channel to the island, just before we boarded a ferry I got a quick snap of the bus. 


Once on the ferry a quick selfie to mark the start of our trip!


Being a naval port there are lots of ships about that can blow stuff up like this one. 

Once we land we’ll be off to check into Grange Farm and then head out for a walk, might have a cup of tea too.

Long time no see

So as you can see there hasn’t been much on the update front since 2016

As far as adventures go we haven’t been on any substantial ones and we haven’t done any work to Bumblebee either.

We do have some news to share though, at some point in May we’ll be introducing a new member to the family, at this stage affectionately know as Jeff though we don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet.

We are both very excited and have already planned a couple of adventures for Jeff not long after he joins us, a weekend at BugJam and a trip to France with Lolly’s parents.

We are also heading to the Isle of Wight at the end of March, one last adventure in Bumblebee before everything changes, I’ll let you all know how a 7 months pregnant woman gets on with sleeping in the back of a van 😳

Happy Halloween!

All Hallows’ eve is upon us. Lolly and I are were going to have a party but neither of us organised it so we’re heading out to a couple of local parties instead.

The one I am looking forward to is the dead famous fancy dress party, I will be going as a zombie version of Freddie Mercury, can’t wait!

Even though we have no kids. Lolly always carves a pumpkin or two and this year she gave a nod to our VW camper van interest, whilst it’s not a T4 its still an awesome jack o lantern!
