From the Author

Having decided to hire a motor caravan and take it across the Channel for a holiday with our two leggy teenagers, we realised after the first night that we were at least five years too late for us all to fit comfortably into such a vehicle. Two weeks of treading on each other's feet did not put us off however, and a mere ten years went by before we acquired our own camper van. With our former accomplices by then making their own way in life, just the two of us headed for Spain, this time a 'one-off' to sate my fascination with a book by Laurie Lee - As I Walked out One Midsummer Morning.

Our 'new' vehicle was not quite as reliable as its former owner had led us to believe, but my practical-minded other-half, Harry, always sorted out the problems to keep us on the road.

After our circumnavigation of Spain we tried and failed to find a buyer for the van, but rather than leave it to rot on the drive, we decided to take it to Italy the following summer. Like the pain of child-birth, we'd forgotten the difficulties of the previous year.

Unfortunately, the charms of our little home-from-home continued to evade prospective purchasers for several years which meant that we found ourselves repeatedly heading for Folkestone and the Eurotunnel every Spring.

Equally, each time we reached the shores of England some 3 or 4 weeks later, we swore never to do it again...
