This is my first post and introduction to my new adventure to be completed in the second half of 2015. I am challenging myself to drive, with my trusty Patterdale Terrier Jack, in a campervan around the complete coastline of the UK. All of it that is!
I have been planning, preparing and researching for several weeks and have now acquired the van for the task ahead – a Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 litre diesel 2010 model so she is coming up to 5 years old. She is currently a panel van but conversion to a campervan is now underway, and starting this week: new windows side and back, insulation, lining, electrics and water supply, kitchen sink, gas hob and fridge, pop-top elevating roof (so I will be able to stand up) and a folding bed. There will also be a bed in the roof space, if any friends or family want to join me for any part of the journey.
I will be taking mobile wifi with me so I can keep in touch with friends, family and clients and will do some work between travelling, sightseeing and photographing. I will be photographing throughout and intend to add new blog posts regularly. I love the sea and am looking forward to time and space to concentrate more on my photography and painting.
Jack is very excited!
Here are some photos so far.
