    Hi everyone.
    Have posted on here for a while but soon as May 6th comes around Glennis and I will be starting our 6 month trip around the UK in our new Hymer Exsis-I 678.
    We pick it up in Nottingham and will spend a few days around that city , getting used to the vehicle and equiping it with life neccessities.
    We then head for the Lake District before heading to the Cotswolds. Wales , Devon Cornwall ,over to the Isle of Wight before heading up the East coast to Scotland.
    We will return to Southampton in early October to ship the MH back to NZ.
    Having left the UK in 1965 at the tender age of 17 years , I have seen bugger all of my homeland. 6 months should give me plenty of time to make up for it.
    My Kiwi wife and I have visited the UK 3 times since we were married but due to work commitments , the stays were always too short.
    We will hopefully have a couple of big black ferns on the MH together with our NZMHA wings , so if you see us , pop over and say hello.

    Hope you have a great trip but unless there is a reason to go up the east of Scotland (will wait for the flak) I would go up the west coast as far more scenic
