Dan and Claire on Sabbatical!!

Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy following our adventures!
We split our sabbatical in 2 parts:
Part 1 was from March to June 2010 touring around in our campervan in France and Spain.
Part 2 started on the 7th of July when we left Scotland to cycle through Europe and the Middle East to Africa in the remaining 6 months (back for Xmas).
Have a look at the route below and we'll try to post pics as much as we can!


Cycle Route to Africa

10 Feb 2010

Preparations: only 2 weeks to go!!

Dan is busy building the van and the house is already up for rent. We're so excited that it is going to happen and time is flying!
We'll have tons of cupboards and bookshelves in the new conversion so compared to our 2 previous van trips this one will be even more comfy!
The bikes have had a last service, we're packing our panniers for the cycle trip and will leave the bikes in Lundie while we're away with the van.
The movers will take our boxes on the 25th of February and then we'll drive to Portsmouth to catch the ferry on the 1st of March.
See you in Espana!

  1. Hi Claire and Dan,

    You two must be very excited, the big trip is finally happening (part I anyway). I hear that you are taking the ferry to Spain tomorrow. I hope all goes well and I've added this page to my favorites!

    Safe travels!
