The week is finally here! On Saturday morning we'll be heading to the Eurotunnel to start our trip, after months and months and months of planning and plotting the time has arrived. We finished our jobs a week ago (we're jobless! Holy moly) and this week has been spent moving all our stuff to my mums (thanks mum, sorry mum) and then tidying the flat before we hand the keys back over to our landlady on Saturday...and then we're free! This in between stage has been a bit weird - when I was daydreaming about this week whilst I was still at work I thought I'd be taking loads of pictures and videoing every little thing and feeling so energetic from finishing work...when in actual fact we have just been working super hard to get everything done and have been in bed by half 9 every night, so wild!
We have booked the first few campsites in France to get us in to the swing of things and I've just checked the let's just ignore that for now and cross those fingers that the sun makes an appearance at least once in the first week.
See you when we get over there!

Our Inflatable Home
Our Inflatable Home

Our little car passed it's MOT! That was the last major thing on the list to sort out (except move out of the flat and finish work obviously...!) so we're very relieved we can get on with planning. We both finish work this Friday and two weeks today we'll be at our first campsite, eeeeek! I have butterflies in my tummy and not to wish time away... but I just can't wait to be there.

Camping favourites, 2015

The sun doesn't always shine... in fact sometimes we think the tent is about to be blown away with us in it so we have to go to the pub for some dutch courage for the rest of the night!

This is us and our inflatable home. As of the 1st May we are hopping on the Eurotunnel with our tent and our little car for an adventure around Europe. We are giving up our jobs and rented flat in London and starting something new and we don't really know where we'll end up. Excited, nervous, anxious, ecstatic? - right now all of them! 

Our Inflatable Home is a Vango Capri 500 that we bought in summer 2015 (there are no poles, it pumps up!) and we'll be driving a Fiat Punto 1.2 with the hope that it does us proud. 

We'll be updating this blog with videos, pictures and writings about our travels as and when we can. We're starting in France with the loose idea that we'll stay there for about a month, see as much as we can and then move on, possibly to Italy...let's see!
