This site exists to share the adventures I hope to have over the coming years. The title is borowed from the old Negro spiritual and from Martin Luther King’s famous 1963 speech, ‘I have a Dream’ , ‘Free at last, free at last; thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’ It perfectly describes my sense having almost finished working and finished bringing up a family as I plan and prepare for as many years as I am able, living and travelling in France, Italy and Spain and perhaps further afield. I hope that my blog will be interesting for those who read it; that it may encourage those tempted to do something similar, and may provide an interesting record of all that I experience and enjoy as I prepare and travel.
In addition to my thoughts and reflections on people I meet, places I visit and the pleasures and challenges of a different way of life, I shall record, in as much detail as possible, the process of building a motorhome. It has its own tab as it may not be to everyone’s taste. It will be supplemented with photos and videos that I hope will make the process more comprehensible. On the links page I will reference all the sites and companies I have found helpful.
