    Hi all, I needed to tell someone, so you are it!! :p

    I have handed in my notice at work, I finish mid April. I am in the process of purchasing a Hobby 750 FMSE off a friend of mine here in Berlin, and my plan is for Debs and I to return to UK in April, MOT the Van, book a ferry across to Spain, turn right and spend the next 10 months touring Spain/Portugal/Spain.
    To say I am excited and relieved is an understatement, I look forward to meeting face to face with as many funsters as poss9ible whilst on our adventure.
    Cheers all.:party2::wine:

    It is Mo, and in very good nick too. We like the low profile and fixed bed situation. It comes complete with a Drive Away Awning too so will be perfect for Debs and I we believe.

    Great news, I hope your pension is still big enough to pay taxes on, this forum will soon be full of non contributors for the relative youth on here to have anything left when we get there :D

    Have fun (y)

    It is big enough to pay tax on, but not much;) and Debs income is from the rental on the House which she also will pay tax on, but not much!!:D
