This is us…

Just thought we would add a few details here for those of you who don’t know us too well.


We are Wayne & Angie from Norwich, Norfolk GB. ,originally from South Yorkshire (we moved in 2000).

So far, life’s been pretty good, we’ve been an item for about a millennia & have 2 great offspring, one of each veriety. Both of which are about to, or in the process of leaving the home nest & good luck to them both!!

We, on the other hand, have almost become redundant, 20+ years of parenting, 30+ years of work-eat-sleep, gotta keep this guinea pig wheel going round & round mentality…. ………… ENOUGH!!!

We had a few holidays in France over the past 5 years, mainly in Brittany in a tourer caravan (thanks Mum & Dad) & we noticed how many motor homes there were & how well they are catered for. A bit more research, a few “how we survive Eurpoe” and “full timing on 4 wheels” blogs & we were sold on the idea that this would be possible, not forever, but just for a few years, our last life changing adventure before we are bundled off into a care-home where we sit staring out of a window & the best thing that happens all day is the postman goes by every day at the same time +/- 10 mins. Can’t wait!

So what are we waiting for? An invite?

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, let’s say we gonna give it a go for 12 months & see what we want to do from there onwards.

    Look forward to reading your blog. Kay and I are planning to do the same in a couple of years or maybe 5, depends on the stock market. Would leave tomorrow if the funds were there. We went to this years Motorhome show in Birmingham to see what van to get 2nd hand when required. Adria Coral plus 690 seemed to fit the bill and price. We’ll see in the future.
    Good luck and have fun.

    Hi Wayne & Angie,
    Late to the party but we have come across your blog after introducing yourself to us. We have just finished the NC 500 and if you are planning it I don’t think you’ll be disappointed – maybe there will be more people on the road when you do it. The great thing for us is we are only just embarking on our semi-retirement (can’t let go) but Janette did say this morning that if this is what retirement is all about I want more of it! Bring it on I say.
    Wishing you happy travels – I’ll keep looking in to see what you are up to as we intend to do a foray into France later this year.
    I’ll try and sort that ‘follow’ button out when I get back – on our way home now.

    Hi Ian, welcome and thanks for your comments. Really looking forward to the NC500 now, miges ‘anall. We seem to be blighted by heaps of bad weather from time to time, so we just hope it will stay reasonable.
    Enjoying your blog, keep up the good work.
    Kindest Wayne.
