Favourite blogs

Well the blog has been in place now for a couple of years and we have also added blogs from previously that describe the journey we have been going through.

wedding closeIn that time, a lot has happened and I thought it may be worth pointing out some of our highlights for those who have caught up with us more recently.

Sometimes the more fun blogs have been those that have described the journeys we have had or the state of the build rather than the more technical ones around the refit of the boat, so here goes…..

Our first (aborted) trip across the channel was in company IMG_1100with Richard and Janet on Easily Led. It did prove to us that what we had in mind was not going to be all plain sailing even in benign conditions. Very Easily Led

Later that season, we went across the channel to Ostend. Our next trip over to Dunkirk was also eventful. Firstly getting there and working out where to go followed by the first attempt at the trip home.

We have some fun but also are aware of the safety aspects and are always learning lessons. Although I try to be critical, and hopefully amusing, in the blog, I hope it doesn’t come across that we are foolhardy.  We have been trained well and are able to think ourselves out of most situations.

But our (mis) adventures are not just limited to water…. imagewe can have as much fun in the motorhome on a journey to Italy. Road trip to Italy 2016

However, on water is where our home is and our first proper trip out of this year was to North Kent where we had a great time. Our 2017 season starts with a trip to Kent

Finally, no list of our favourites is complete without something to do with the house we are building in Puglia.img_5370Build in Puglia – Trullo complete

There ya go, a diverse selection of some of our favourite blogs. Maybe some beach reading, or for the commute to work, I hope you enjoy them.
