    Good Luck to this guy ! He is young enough to do it will have great memories for the rest of his life !
    I remember when we set off to Greece and Turkey in the early seventies in an old Landrover with a mattress in the back and had the time of our lives .

    I like that magnetic strip in the cutlery draw for holding the knives, forks still to stop them rattling whilst on the move
    Anyone know where it can be bought?

    This is where I got mine from @joncris

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331175502664

    Need to order some more as they are so useful for other things as well.

    Sorry this is not where I got mine from, I had it book marked but got them from somewhere else due to low seller rating. sorry. I will try and find where I ordered mine from. It was 4+ years ago so can't find invoice :(

    Ahhh the wilderness years came all to soon. When you're too old for club 18-30 and too young for Saga!

    Then you ARE old enough for Saga and think everybody in there is old .... then they say their age and they are younger than you .. :(

    My 21 year old son away for a 5 month trip round South America in March taking in 6 countries.... My daughter who is 23 has travelled extensively... My parents generation hardly travelled, we travel a fair bit. But the norm is far more adventurous these days...

    @movan couldn't agree with you more on this one. All my neighbours are old people and they are younger than me. Ha!

    Strikes again.....always inaccurate reporting.

    When did the earth shrink to less than half its size ?

    My youngest stepdaughter is heading home......after 2 years travelling New Zealand, a couple of months in the Philippines and a couple of months in HongKong.
    four years ago she came home from 2 years in Australia, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia.

    Do you see a pattern evolving ? She keeps coming home. :swear2:

    Just be pleased that she wants to, and feels she can. Not seen my son for 7 years!
