So the journey begins…After 2 and half years of working and saving and then 3 months of converting the van and planning the whole trip the day finally arrived to leave. With the emotions of saying goodbye to everyone, the apprehension of what lay ahead and the blatant excitement of it all I have to admit i feel a little overwhelmed. Honestly as well there is more than a little “what the hell am I doing?”. Spending a year or more in a LDV Convoy with my dog? Are you deranged?
Despite that we went to Avon Beach near Christchurch, Dorset where Lupa had a swim and I rode the emotional rollercoaster. Quickly it came apparent that we couldn’t park in the Avon Beach car park overnight so I plotted a route north in the sat nav and before long we found a lay-by with no restrictions and also no view. But I don’t care. It’s the first night on many and it’s just brilliant to finally be on the trip.
