Look what I found…

I was flitting around the interweave earlier and I came across this… …it was on a site put together by a traveller called Dave (Traveller Homes) with loads of photos of travellers buses, trucks, caravans and the like.

New toys…

I have new toys. I have finally dived into the dslr market (at the deep end incidentally, still slightly in shock) and got myself a shiny camera.

There was a party planned for that evening in between the trucks and vans – a barbecue, a few drinks and some mellow sounds. Only something seemed to be missing –… Continue reading Are we nearly there yet?
