What we’ve learned during our full time motorhome travel adventures
We’ve already made the mistakes, so you don’t have to!
Hi, we are Callum, Philippa & Theodore (the travel cat). We left our little Island of Jersey, in the English Channel, in September 2019 to live in our motorhome and travel full time. Things have gone wrong, we’ve made mistakes & learned a lot along the way.
One of the things we are asked about most is “What’s it like travelling and living in a motorhome with your pet?” The short answer is “It’s great & we’re so glad that we brought Theodore with us”. He’s such a chilled cat, he’s just happy to be where we are & he’s part ofContinue reading “Full Time Travel Life With Pets”
Living in a motorhome full time is just like having a mini house, but on wheels. So what equipment do you need in your mini kitchen?

Responsible van life We left sunny Jersey in September 2019 to travel Europe in our motorhome.

The wheres, whys & hows of wild camping around Europe in a motorhome I have to admit that it took us quite a long time to really understand the concept of wild camping.
