Well, I have been nagged (and nagged) by Mrs P to write something. She says that people need a distraction during this lockdown. Not quite sure how a blog about traveling in a camper van, when you can’t travel, will achieve that but, I’m up for the challenge.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then, here goes…
The above picture shows Gandalf on our driveway. Exciting stuff eh? You will note he is clean. Very clean. I polished him at the weekend. All dressed up with no place to go.
Are you cheered up yet? No! Oh well.
We are unable to go far but, we are lucky enough to have a big garden. So, at the weekend we had a mini holiday. Meet, The Hobbit Haus…
The Hobbit Haus sits at the bottom of our garden. It was an impulse buy some years ago. It gets a lot of use. It is our mini escape.
It seats 10 and has a central BBQ. We’ve had 10 in here a few times. Crowded but fun. Tricky to cook with that many though.
We’ve spotted these things in the most unexpected of places. One beside the river at Henley-on-Thames; one just outside Bad Gastein in Austria.
Anyway, I’m not going to write too much in this first blog for ages. My thumb may get tired and we don’t want me clogging up the NHS with repetitive strain injury now do we. More tomorrow? I can tell you our plans, probably scuppered, for the summer; excite your with tales of lockdown exercise regimens (yawn) and titillate you with the best of the non-travel, travel funnies we have been looking at.
In the meantime you will have to excuse me. I am a very busy man…
In the words of the current trend. Stay safe.
