UPDATE Nov 2020, due to the fact that Flash is removed Dec 2020 all of these mobile views are replaced by responsive code, please see BLOG 143 for further info.


I have reworked all our motorhome travel websites to ensure they are in technical parlance "responsive embedded" and suitable for use on all mobile phones.


They always worked on laptops, macs , desktop pcs and tablets but were a little quirky on phones.


Why not try them out on your phone and let us know of anything we could do better, many thanks and happy motorhoming!

Whilst processing some of our old photos for our family tree I came across some reasonable old scenery pictures of our family holiday to the greek isalnd of crete way back when in 1988.


See the picture in the slideshow of the self catering apartments (Argo) we stayed in. Just off the very steep and dangerous beach outside Rethymon town. We walked back into the safe swimming area in the harbour with the boys. Also we hired both a jeep and a car to see lots more of the island, Knossos, Ag Nik, Sumarian Gorge, Phaistos, Mallia, Omolaos, Plains of Messara, North, central and southern areas (although the south is much less easier to travel around by road - boat mostly)


It was a fun family holiday when the boys were quite young and nice to remember almost 30 years ago!

This is a retrospective of a holiday Annie & I took to the wonderful Shetland Isles in July 2001.


Travelled up from Nottingham in our then red ford escort estate, stayed overnight in Aberdeen , picnicked in the grounds of an open prison (unbeknown to us until we were evicted) Overnight ferry to Lerwick. Stayed in a cottage not far outside Lerwick at Gulberswick Bay. Travelled thru all the islands and even a boat to Fetlar taking the car across. We visited the island of Mousa by tourist ferry and spent the day walking around and seeing the seal sanctuary. Cold and misty mostly but very interesting islands. Met a couple on Unst who had pigs etc were very interesting. He did IT from home and she ran a craft shop, idylllic lifestyle, used to live in London Travelled on the SS Claire Aberdeen to Lerwick.

This is a retrospective post as have been digitising old photographs.


We travelled around the east coast of Australia by car, foot, ferry, boat, public transport and a jugganaut of a motorhome in Queensland which would have held 6 people and had 10 gears. It was a great way to get across the Atherton table land apart from the 3 mile queue behind us as its top speed in the bottom of the 10 gears wasn't great *SMILE*.


Starting in Sydney with family we then travelled via Canberra down to Melbourne and then along the Great Ocean road as far as Warranambool and whale watched southern right whales at Logan's Beach before returning to Melbourne and flying up to Cairns to pick up our motorhome for a fortnight. We visited the Atherton tablelands cane sugar country and Green Island by ferry to see some of the Great Barrier Reef. We then returned to Sydney before flying home. Fab times.


If you want to see and read more about our various trips to the southern hemisphere why not click 2007/2008 or 2013 or if you specifically wanna see 1995 click here


Enjoy - have you done this trip or something similar, let us know about it here, thanks! Would definately do it in an RV or 5 wheeler next time, gives one so much more freedom.
