Time for contemplation

5 Dec

It’s that time of year, when you find time to look back over the last year and look forward to the fresh clean sheet of next year’s plans.

2017 was disrupted (in a very pleasant way !) by a 3 week trip to the USA in May. This took a large chunk out of our leisure budget but we still managed some time away in Wales. We visited lots of National Trust and English Heritage properties along with our inevitable Antiques centre days out. The kampa has performed very well despite a large bill to replace a sheared air inlet pipe and a mass air flow sensor (which did not really need replacement). Otherwise, totally reliable and building a huge sense of “trust” in the entire package.

It has been a year of “day vanning” with a few overnight stopovers but crammed with Castles, interesting Welsh and English towns and repeated family visits to London. Next year looks ambitious before we even start !

Having thoroughly enjoyed two trips to Scotland ,previously, including Loch Goyle and Skye , the NC500 is again on the cards. The seaside is also calling with Cornwall and Anglesey high on the wish list. We have not visited our beloved France for far too long and a trip to Lac de Maine , Angers has to be a must. So we have much to budget for and I enjoy the planning so much. Before Christmas, I shall get the timing and auxilliary belts changed in preparation. The rust proofing will have to wait! Now, where’s my pen and planning pad?
