Hi and welcome to our blog! We are Tony and Rosie Pike and in 2013 we purchased our Autocruise Quartet campervan. We used to own a VW back in the 80’s but now the kids have grown, we felt it was time for us to start on another adventure and explore Europe without them! So leaving Children and Grandchildren behind, we set off on our first European Adventure in September 2013, heading for Croatia. We were a little nervous, as it turned out unnecessarily so, but very excited too. Since then, we have travelled to Spain on several occasions, Italy, South of France and various shorter trips in the UK. This year, 2017, we have upgraded from our van conversion to a coach built, as much as we loved the Quartet, we felt it was time for a little more storage space and a bed that didn’t need to be made up each night!
We are again very excited and planning our first trip this year to Spain in May, having encouraged our good friends, Mick and Jill, who own a caravan to venture into the delights of Europe towing their caravan to come along with us.
We use this blog as a way for family and friends to keep up with our travels, experiences, mistakes and progress every step of the way. We hope it’s informative and helpful and that everyone who reads it, enjoys it!
Let the new adventures begin!
