I’m now two adventure-packed months into a nine month European trip and am craving a different pace of travel. We’ve been city-hopping, backpacking, couch-surfing, weekender-ing and ski-tripping, so now it’s time to try something new.
Today Dave and I start our one month Wicked Campers van tour of the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland. Hurray!
There are so many places in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales that we want to see. So, rather than organise a month of buses and trains and planes, we’ve decided it will be cheaper, faster and much more adventurous to just hire a campervan and do it in one big hit.
So far, the general plan is to head north from London, via Manchester and/or Liverpool, York, The Lake District and up into Scotland. Then, after a week or so there, we will head over to Northern Ireland and Ireland, across to Wales and then back to London town by the end of March.
Now I’m calling on you, my wonderful readers and fellow travel-lovers, to share any stories, blogs, tips and tricks you may have come across.
What are your must-see places in the UK and Ireland?
Where do you want to send me so you can learn more?
A big shout out to the lovely folk at Wicked Campers UK, who have made this trip possible. Thanks for everything Wicked! I can’t wait to pick up our van this morning and get out there!
