Hi, my name is Bev Dalton and I live in a large American RV, called Georgie, with my husband Steve.

Since his retirement in 2016, we have been learning how to live in a small, mobile space, whilst navigating the pitfalls of new languages, road laws and campsite etiquette around Europe.

We have got a lot of things wrong, so I’m hoping that other wannabe travellers will find this useful.

Having recently graduated University, attaining a first class degree (so proud) in Creative Writing and Fine Art, I am hoping to use this time, and the inspiration from my travels, to further my skills.

Well, that’s the plan, anyway, and you know what they say about those.

I’m a mother, and grandmother, who likes all things kitsch and crafty, sings a mean karaoke, and am is a bloody whizz on the sewing machine. I love reading, as long as it’s beautifully written, and any animal that doesn’t bite me (apart from slugs).

I’ve had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for over twenty years, which means I’ve never been anywhere much before. I was always rubbish at languages at school, and my sense of geography is embarrassing, so this is truly a great adventure for me. Hopefully I am more of an innocent abroad than an idiot, but the jury’s still out on that one.

I hope you enjoy seeing things through my eyes. Drop me a comment sometime and say Hi.

  1. Hello Bev and Steve from Sue Ellen’s mum and dad – alias Claire & Nick! We’ve been back home in France for just over a week now and have spent most of it yanking up weeds, planting vegetables and testing various alcoholic combinations… We travelled back through the UK via Dunkerque to Dover then from Poole to Cherbourg without incident except a lucky (depending how you look at it) blip with the MOT. Sue Ellen passed as promised by the lovely Polish mechanic who serviced her before our Dutch tour then, three minutes out of the testing station, some Volvo wielding nobtop tried to pass on a narrow lane (instead of waiting as much as two seconds for Nick to clear the long line of parked cars) thinking (or not) that he could squeeze between Sue Ellen and the pavement. He was wrong and smashed his mirror and scratched his paintwork on the bracket thingy into which the awning used to rest – before the awning fell off last year. The lucky bit is that he only sliced off Sue Ellen’s little orange running light which cost £10 to replace and would have caused a possible MOT failure had it happened on the way to the test. Glass half full – that’s me! So, anyway, we have enjoyed reading your adventures and look forward to the next instalment. I think there’s a TV sitcom just begging for your material! Keep smiling! Love from Claire & Nick & Sue Ellen xxxx
