As I sit and write this we are being stalked by two sets of opposing young cattle at a rainswept camperstop on the banks of the river Eider in NW Germany.
Denmark discovery 2019
This year for our annual 3-week jaunt we fancied somewhere a bit different and also a place we hadn’t been to before, Denmark came up trumps. The nice coastline, history, culture and forests struck a chord with us and with ageing dogs we didn’t want high mountains, Denmark is dead flat!
Birthday bonanza, part 2…
It’s March and spring has arrived so it’s time for birthday trip number two, in celebration of my birthday. The Forest of Dean is a regular favourite of ours, there is lots to do and see and we are in the woods! We also are heading across the Severn Estuary to the countryside around Stroud as it’s a lovely part of the UK.
Birthday bonanza.. (part 1)
It has been a long winter in the Hymertrails household, lots of non vanlife stuff going on. Firstly, I am having work woes, do I have a job, don’t I have a job, who knows, hopefully by the middle of the summer I’ll have a clearer idea of what on earth is going on!! The Hymertrails gang are also in the (horrible) process of selling our house, we have fallen out of love with our smallish Welsh miner’s cottage, well its mainly a case of not wanting neighbours, longing for somewhere to park Hank and having a smaller environmental footprint. We have a big garden for a small house and even…
A tail of two hounds…
I guess we should tell you about one half of our adventure gang.
Coasts, Castles and Conifers.
It’s the weekend, I’ve had the ‘man flu’ all week, Claire is getting a less virulent strain (obviously) but nevertheless it’s Hymertrails time!!
The Hunt for Red ‘Leaved’ October — Part Two
Arriving at Castle Coombe just as it starts to go dark we set Hank up, check he’s level, gas on, heating on, Silver screens on, water heater on and then relax!!
The Hunt for Red ‘Leaved’ October – Part One
Managing to get away that bit earlier is a huge bonus for a weekend advanture, it gives you more flexibility and basically more time away in the van, which is what it’s all about!
Sandy Trails are Happy Trails…
When you’ve had a rubbish week in work and the weekend weather is not being your friend there really is only one course of action, a day out!!!
Bumble at Strumble!
Another fabulous weekend adventure ‘downline’ in Pembrokeshire. This time Strumble head was our desination and a small CL site at Tresinwen Farm. Just a short walk from Stumble head and it’s magnificent lighthouse. We managed to get a good start on Friday afternoon and arrived at the site about 8pm. Bit of a chore to get Hank level and find a good spot but after a bit of time we were all set up, hounds fed and watered and we’d settled down to a steaming hot bowl of tortellini and tomato sauce! Great standby for those late night arrivals.
