What Does a Day’s Driving Look Like from Hanna’s Perspective?

So some of you may have picked up on the fact that we have a dashcam fitted in the windscreen. It was a thing I wanted to experiment with and wasn’t really sure what would come out of it. So the first (and perhaps most obvious) aspect of it that needed (needs) solving; is what does one do with so … Read More

Icefields Parkway, Waterfalls, Glaciers and Mountains

That’s a big title – one that I probably wont adequately fulfil – but there is a road from a place called Jasper to a place called Banff called the Highway 93 – luckily some bright spark re-named it the Icefields Parkway and that is much easier to write about. So Jasper and Banff are Canadian national parks – Banff … Read More

Lake Louise to Kelowna

  Lake Louise Campground, this morning: we woke to the whispering patter of snow falling onto Hanna’s roof. The already-snowy landscape took on another level of quiet as the campground’s few tire tracks and foot prints were filled in by the night’s snowfall.  We turned on the heater and lay in bed until the van heated up.  It was -5C … Read More

Walmart Hopping – Crossing Canada Out of Season

There are many places to enjoy and while away your time in Canada – beautiful, stunning and breath-taking but with a motorhome you need some basics at the end of the day (or every few days). Namely – water, a dump station and a place to sleep where you won’t get a knock on the door at 2am telling you … Read More

Where Are We Now? – and a Mechanical Update

So it is Tuesday evening – 27th October 2015 – we are once again in a Walmart carpark – nothing against Walmart carparks though – easy access to toilets and safe flat (ish) parking; we can even get Asda brand clothing if we so wished (but we don’t). I have been a bit lacking in the posting department for the … Read More

We’re off! We’re off! Driving across Canada

So, we have finally set off from Novia Scotia after 6 weeks delay.  Hanna still has issues but she works well enough if we drive her carefully.  We are THRILLED to be on the move!   It’s fun and exciting to be seeing new places everyday, and to be really living the travel adventure we dreamed of. We had our first … Read More

Photos of Nova Scotia, So Far – The Glitter!

Despite the mechanical issues, we have managed to see some gorgeous places (and lots of industrial parks!). Two weekends, when the garage was closed, we headed off for short jaunts along the coast for a few days. Plus we had one majorly false start – “Woohoo, we’re finally off!” we thought. Oh, how wrong we were. Cue massive gearbox leak … Read More
