A few countries, a few campsites, a few cows

There has been quite some action since our last blog post! Our excuse is that we have been without WiFi for the last four weeks, and just a few days ago we stepped back into the modern world when a router appeared on the property that is our current home. So here we are, with an update for you all. The last four weeks, in brief:We traveled all the way across England! From West to East once again, with a night on a lovely campsite that we had all to ourselves. Basically, we parked in an empty field. It was awesome. Then…

We took a boat and drove across a little bit of France! Then…

We drove across Belgium! Then…

We drove through the Netherlands! We extended our route there to stay for a couple of extra days, as the roads were fantastic and we enjoyed it a lot. It’s rather flat, and there are lovely windmills, just to confirm a couple of stereotypes there. There too, we also had a campsite to ourselves – we thoroughly recommend traveling around outside of peak season times, although one of the reasons we like these empty sites so much is because we’ve now got used to being around no more thanย  five people at a time. So huge fields with no people is where we are at home. Then…

We drove across Germany! We were ready for a police stop as soon as we crossed the border, but were disappointed. No German police found our almighty van suspicious this time! Then…

We took another boat! Then…

We drove across the south coast of Sweden! We were prepared for a beautiful country and so far Sweden is totally fulfilling our expectations. We stopped at a random campsite and parked about three metres away from edge of the coast, facing the direction of the setting sun. We planned to stay for one night. Then we extended. Then we extended again. Then…We drove to our work project and parked up in what has now become our new temporary home. We are a hundred metres away from a gorgeous lake and haven’t seen another person around it yet (suits us perfectly, see above). Holiday time is over for now though, and we’re working pretty hard here and getting our teeth stuck into some great projects. We’ll write more details in our next blog, and there are sneak peaks on our Instagram account of course. Oh, and we have a group of ten cows as very nosey neighbours here. While watching a horror movie in the car one night, we heard a really weird noise which we thought came from the movie. We rewound it (do we still say rewound, or is that from the days of VHS tapes?), and rewound it again and couldn’t hear it. For a moment, we thought we were having a supernaturel moment of our own, until we turned around and looked out the back window. We saw all ten cows, not moving, staring directly at us. Mooing.

Cows are awesome.
