About Our Blog

Welcome to Our Blog
In early 2014, in our early thirties, we set off unexpectedly to tour Europe in a motorhome. The push we needed had come in the form of a serious health scare. After many years of feeling dissatisfied with work and chronic health problems, we received a sharp reminder that life's fragile and you can't always rely on the plans you make for the future (read more about us here).

For the first 18 months this blog was used as a diary for ourselves, friends, family and the people that we met along the way. Mostly we used it to post pictures of the lovely places we parked our first motorhome (Homer) and where we'd been hiking and cycling. At the time our blog was called 'Motorhome Adventurers'.

Then we noticed that our journey had started to change. Partway through 2015, even though we had removed all of the obvious stress factors from our lives, we realised we still weren't really 'happy'. That there was still friction between us. That after more than a year of adventurous exploits, exhausting ourselves in  the great outdoors didn't feel quite enough any more. This realisation was confusing and painful at first, forcing us to look inwards, questioning what we were really doing on our adventures, or indeed with our lives? Were we just running away and trying to distract ourselves?

It was the beginning on an inward journey of reflection, contemplation and meditation alongside our physical journey through the mountains and roads of Europe. We began to realise that 'happiness' wasn't really an elusive state that we could find only on top mountains, and that peace and contentment was actually available at any time, in any place and under any circumstances.

Since that time we've tried to capture both of these journey's on this blog, writing about our health, relationship and issues we care about, in addition to all of the exciting places, activities and dog adventures that we enjoy.

This may be why, depending on how you found our blog, you may notice a big difference in the types of posts you find here and the way we write now compared to several years ago. Even though our outlook on some elements of life has changed markedly in the past few years, we decided that we wouldn't try and remove or change any of the older posts on the blog. It's a record of our journey.

Happy Reading x
