This is the video of my first proper trip out in the van, sleeping in it overnight and actually using it as a campervan. I went to visit Nick Twinney (aka “Shevanigans” on YouTube) who lives near Swansea, and he took me for a tour around the Gower which is where my father grew up and that side of my family is from. We visited Rhossili, Langland, Rotherslade and the Mumbles and I saw where my grandmother used to have a small chandlery which we visited many times when I was a child.
The campsite I stayed at was at Horton; it was OK though very blustery being right on the coast and the shower stalls, though clean, had nowhere sensible to put your clean clothes so they they’d stay dry while you shower! Weirdly, despite the site being practically empty (mid October), they chose to site me right next to a motorhome, which I’mm sure I disturbed when I left at 8am the following day.
