British Isles Tour

Originally the reason we bought a caravan was to tour Europe, not just for a month or two but for at least a year. It was clearly important that we had some practice – and to see if we were going to enjoy this carvanning malarkey, so the idea of a tour of Britain was hatched and we left our home in Saltdean, East Sussex on April 10th 2012 in appalling weather and somewhat apprehensive.
