    We are Dave and Wendy Southwell, and we have just taken the plunge!

    We have been on the road in Belgium and France for the last three weeks, our plan is to stay in Spain for the Winter, then to keep touring until we have had enough, or kill each other.

    We have a Bailey Autograph 745.

    Any tips or advise would be gratefully received.

    We have set up a little blog for anyone who would like to follow our Journey.

    Touring Europe long-term
    Welcome! Enjoy, enjoy and then enjoy.
    Some areas will be yuck but others will more than make up for the bad ones.

    We also tour long term and for wifi we have a mifi in which we insert a local data-only simcard. In italy we bought a TIM card, in Spain a Vodafone. Not best if you download loads of stuff/facetime/skype but more than adequate for email catchups, banking and general keep-in-touch functions.

    Perhaps we will see you on the road. (We will be in Spain for the winter.)

    Happy travels!

    Welcome, enjoyed your blog and will be reading it with interest as we have just bought a Bailey Approach Autograph 740 and will be doing some long term touring in France / Spain next year. Will be good to hear how Josephine performs and great to hear about your experiences. Enjoy your trip and keep up with the blog (y).
