I have come to realise that at some point in my life, I am going to have to buy a camper van of some sort. Living out of a van and travelling around Australia with my sister and friend was without a doubt the best four months of my life. I slept on thin sliding boards that made up a bed in the roof and I would still do it all over again. I've been travelling and camping around Spain, and even driven my old Vauxhall Corsa across France and back. Driving in Paris is definitely not for the faint hearted, or those who have strong attachments to their cars. Luckily, I made it out without so much as a bump. I made it to Paris from Hull in less than a day, with no plan just a map, tent, a tank of petrol, and a ticket for the return ferry. I like that get up and go type of holiday, and seeing something different everyday. So, I think a camper van is the best way to keep these adventures going. Watch this space to see where is next.
