After travelling around Asia in early January 2018, Francesca had no plans for her return to London, however she knew she wasn’t ready to get back into an office. After coming across David and Karen’s adventures in their Elddis motorhome, Francesca set away planning her own adventure on wheels. Before she knew it she was not only a blogger, but also the proud owner of a brand new Fiat Ducato Compass Avantguarde CV20.

The great thing about holidaying in a leisure vehicle is the flexibility you have when you discover nature’s gems on the way. However, it also means it can take a while before you reach your end destination, made evident by Francesca who spent three to four hours on the journey to Inverness that would normally have taken just two.
