    Something to make you smile...hopefully!

    We set off on 11 April 14 and bar a couple of months back in the UK to change motorhomes we are still traveling and enjoying the adventure all the way. As at July 2016, we have covered a total of 33,432 kilometres or 20,774 miles over 606 days. Travelling an average of 55 km per day with the longest journey being 780 km. We have travelled to and visited 20 countries and consumed 4,346 litres of diesel from 88 fuel stations with an average of 22 mpg. We’ve filled our LPG bottles 55 times and used 1,139 litres of gas to heat our home, run the fridge and freezer, hot water, oven, grill, hob and last but not least our BBQ at an average cost of €0.94 per day. We have paid 40 tolls, tunnels and mountain passes, 17 ferries and 11 flights. We’ve had 1 break in, 1 bump, 2 reversing eeks and 1 oops when the garage door flew off at 2,425 m above sea level. Overnight, we have stayed on 91 campsites or aires but we have grown to love wild camping and spent 515 nights where ever the road takes us. 305 supermarket sweeps and 45 evenings of fine dining.A total of 354 days with nothing but sunshine, 122 overcast days, 67 mixed, 3 thunder storms and 61 days of rain.

    So how much has it cost…£19,959.52 for everything. A bargain at only £32.94 per day for 2 people and 2 dogs. Oh and we forgot to mention, killed each other 16 times, spent 10 days in silence and 580 days loving each other to bits.

    Given that a "funny" for the last bit. :) Well done but I think you need to work on the thunderstorms. Three is a paltry number! Go and seek them out. We love them. :)

    In the scheme of things no but location was a surprise...St Tropez in broad day light. Our alarm scared them off, so minimal damage really. The bump only a little scratch x
