Retrospective


We took our hired Canadian motorhome across the border at Niagara Falls, Lewiston bridge into Upstate New York along the edge of lake ontario and then via Rochester , Syracuse , Pulaski and back into Canada at Alexandria bay.


For Maine we visited Bar Harbor, what a lovely place - lobster roll and all ;) and Lubec (eastern most US town) and Campobello island as a detour between Fredricton & St John , New Brunswick.

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!

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


We travelled around Florida NOT in a motorhome this time but heaven forbid in a car, sacriledge to us motorhomers / RV-ers/ campervanners but there you go it was in a time BM (before motorhoming).


Starting in Orlando we stayed in Kissimmee (nice pool at Villas @ Somerset) visited Disney World a few times, the kids were young, then travelled across the sunshine superhughway bridge to Tampa, St Pete's & Clearwater beaches, Busch gardens, Sanibel, Venice, Melbourne beach etc down the west coast of Florida across the Everglades, thru all the Keys, Marathon, Marine park at Bahia Honda, stayed at Key West, 1930s hotel, sunsets, Hemmingways Sloppy Joes, Key Largo then up to Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Cocoa beach, Kennedy Space Station narrowly missing the next shuttle take off by 1 day (Discovery) and then back to Orlando to fly back. Fab times.

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.

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


We travelled around British Columbia in a motorhome starting in Vancouver, then Vancouver island including especially whale watching at Tofino, a fab pod of killer whales that hadn't been seen for over a month, guess we were just lucky, then up to Port Hardy to catch the ferry to travel the inside passge up to Prince Rupert, a magical journey.


We then headed across to Prince George, down highway 97 into Kamloops and saw our dear friends David & Cathy and family in Edmonton before finsihing up in Vancouver again to give the van back and fly back home. A nice trip, lots of miles , fabulous scenery and a great little van.
