About us

We are Deb and Steve, a northern couple now living in Hampshire (UK). Seasoned campers whilst our two girls were growing up. In 2014 we decided we needed a little touring luxury, bought a caravan and started loving life travelling around with our tandem bike and our tin box on wheels. 2017 saw us reach our 50th birthdays so we celebrated by completing ‘50 Days in Europe‘ with our caravan in tow, now released as an Amazon book. Left our careers behind us and now working as Caravan Site Wardens living in the caravan.

We enjoy blogging about our travels, our experiences and writing reviews. Our blogs started in November 2015 as a personal way to view back our trips, and to leave a record for our family. It is lovely to see over 325,000 views to date as we also enjoy reading similar blogs and it is pleasing to strike a chord with people, who, like us, also dream to work less, live more, see more and meet more.

Would be delighted if you wish to follow our blog, to do so, click the link at the bottom of the homepage.

  1. Fabulous read, thank you. We just bought our first caravan from Oxford Caravans, a Lunar Quasar, she is awaiting her first trip out. We are seasoned campers followed by Pennine Folding Campers and finally, with all the family flown, we decided on some luxury 🙂 I look forward to following your travels………………

    1. Thank you for commenting.
      Have a read of our latest blog ‘Why we bought our first Caravan’ you will probably probably relate to some of it.


  2. the main problem is the fact there are no time served coachbuilders anymore, we rely on a production line where one man screws the same piece on the van all day, another fixes another piece on, resulting in cheap labour with no skills, I have had new motorhomes needing new back ends through damp, lite dry and strong, ( I don’t think so) wet weak and rubbish, new caravans only a bit better , others ok, the moral being don’t buy british ,( I think) . I don’t know if its because us british are just happy with what we get and put up with poor quality, or we don’t care.?

  5. Hi – just found your blog – purchased your book a few days ago and started reading earlier in the week – great read (you are near the Austrian boarder – our favourite place). Looking forward to the rest of the book and wading through your blogs. Thanks again, Darren
