In planning our trip I went through phases of cutting out newspaper articles relating to Motorhomes/touring/destinations and kept them for future reading.
With the development of the Internet information went from being often difficult to find, to being really easy, back to being difficult to find due to overload! My view of these newspaper articles followed suit, useful, not really that useful, back to being useful again.
So it was with curiosity that I read one of these ‘saved’ articles entitled ‘moving house’ looking at the pros and cons of life on the open road. It looked at a family who resigned their jobs, bought a Motorhome and went on the road for a year. It was interesting to read their experiences of buying a Motorhome, planning the trip and their travels. A lot of chuckling with empathy.
It did strike me as a little odd that I’m reading this article on the ferry from Croatia to Italy, two and half months into our trip. Not so much where or when I’m reading it but the fact that the article is from The Guardian, dated 19.04.03. Its a newspaper cutting from over 14 years ago! It has survived a house move, numerous tidies (well Kath would say not that many tidies!!) and managed to get taken on our trip.
It goes to show both my information gathering and retention, not to mention packing, seems a little random! But it was a good article, I enjoyed reading it and it shows we were planning our trip from the early 2000s.
“Motorhomes offer the opportunity to condense your lives into one self-contained travelling room” and explore the world at your leisure.
