Welcome to our website and blog.
This site mainly documents our adventures as we spend the summer of 2016 travelling around the UK and Eire in Mavis, our motorhome.
Thanks to contacts we’ve made during the years the plan is to work at small music festivals and a few other gatherings as well as plenty of sightseeing along the way. We’ll also be seriously testing the tolerance of friends and relatives around the country who were foolish enough not to pretend they were away for the summer or had some highly infectious illness and therefore will have to put up with two under washed hungry nomads on their doorstep and a motorhome the size of Luxemburg on their drive.
In case you don’t know us we are Alison and Ray Canham. We were married in September 2015 after first meeting at a friend’s camping trip in 2011. We have approximately three grown up children between us, two cats, who are lodging with relatives while we’re on the road, and we share a passion for the outdoors, hiking, camping, the open road, music and coffee.
We’ve both worked all our lives, Alison predominately in administration and Ray as a nurse for people who have a learning disability, and then in social housing in a series of jobs with increasingly bewildering titles.
