    We have just bought our first RV and are dead excited! A 1993 Winnebago Brave 33'. We have been talking about having one for over a year now and at last we have taken the plunge. We are going to live in her full time in an olive grove on the Island of Lefkas in Greece....are we mad?

    I have been to Lefkas , a long time ago, and its a lovely place. If i could speak the lingo , didn't have any ties , had had enough of living in Britain , living in an olive grove could appeal.....
    But as much as i love motor-homing , I'd prefer to live in a house where ever in the world.
    But I dont think your mad. I bet your very excited about it.
    Infact looking out of the window now over the fields , its grey, damp , dull and misty.
    Wonder what its like in Lefkas???

    If i remember rightly , Lefkas is actually connected to the mainland ( by little Islands ) So you can drive on .

    Had a look on street map looks stunning, it would appear that you can get a ferry from a number of ports in Italy. Maybe try that myself.:thumb:

    On a less frivolous note.
    Whether you are mad or not will depend on what your plans are.. you don't say if you are going to run as a business , albeit a hobby business or not.. If that were the case I can see the attraction .. but if it's just a place to chill out then I would get bored very quickly .. and probably go mad..

    Best of luck and good on you for giving it a go .. better to try and fail than to never try at all, but if it does fail, have an exit plan.. :thumb:

    Go and enjoy yourselves! And the Winnebago.
    Anything has got to be better than this grey, wet, sunshineless place that we live in.
