About The Last Great Adventure

Me and Jack, Bamburgh, Boxing day 2011

The Last Great Adventure is just that…perhaps the last great adventure I’ll have in my life, documented live as it happens.

TLGA is my diary, my journal, my record, my memory, my reflection, my musing, my catharsism, my life.

Yes … it’s my life in words and pictures, since late summer 2006, when I began living in a motorhome and travelling around the UK and Europe. The motorhome is an Elddis 200, which is not huge, but it’s big enough for me and my Patterdale terrier that I got as a puppy in 2007. (He’s in the picture above)

Sadly I’ve only enjoyed one trip to Europe since I began living in the van. That was in the very end of May 2009 when I gave up smoking after 35 years, and decided on a whim to go and see the Normandy landings D-Day celebrations, but stayed for 5 months. More about that in the blog. Since then I haven’t had a reliable satellite system and dongles (USB modems) don’t work abroad, or are hideously expensive. 

However I’ve had the most amazing 6 and  half years exploring the UK, and I hope I don’t have to give it up anytime soon.
