• Onwards…

    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…

  • 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.
