After escaping Dodge (London) the plan was to travel across Europe for a couple of years, but then life happened and we had to stay in the UK for a few months (in van). Then it got cold so we decided to go to Asia for winter (not in van). Then we spent another spring/summer/autumn in the van and are now saving precious pennies (not in van) to get us out of a very different but very cold dodge (Northern Ireland), so we can finally escape to the warmer shores of continental Europe. But plans tend to change a lot around here, so it’s best not to hold ones breath.
First rule of vanlife, don’t make plans.
