The van had to go for its annual MoT safety check and immediately afterwards I needed to visit Stroud to look at a roundabout, then onto Gloucester for some canal filming. So I made this vlog of the journey.
In the last couple of weeks, I’ve used the campervan as a mobile base for filming narrowboat videos, including trips to Boston in Lincolnshire and Tring in Hertfordshire. So I also filmed the van bits to make this hotch-potch of a vlog.
I went for a one-night campervan trip to Billing Aquadrome in the Northamptonshire countryside, meeting up with another van enthusiast as well, whose video is linked below. There I tried out my new pop-up shower tent, with water coming from a collapsible bucket via a battery-operated pump. Did it work? Watch and find out.
The final few days of my New Zealand holiday – before it was cut short due to the pandemic – were spent on a superb trip around with Bay of Islands with Travelling K, as well as exploring the Coromandel Peninsula.
After a few days in a hotel in Auckland I picked up my tiny one-person campervan and headed north. I had watched lots of YouTube videos about places to visit and drawn up a long list. This was going to involve lots of driving. In this episode I see a big tree, slide down some sand dunes, and take a ferry trip.
On December 29th, some wonderful friends I used to work in Kent with decided to have a catch-up and meal at a local pub, and I was invited along too. I went down in the campervan and stayed overnight on the road overlooking the sea. Before I left in the morning, I went for a quick tour of the seafront. This is the video of that trip (obviously)
