Who Are Alan and Ruth?

We are a  fun loving Kiwi (New Zealand) couple, travelling through Europe full-time in a motorhome named “Betsy“.

In 2017 we packed up our life in Australia where we’d been living for the past eight years and sent everything we owned back to New Zealand.  We then flew to Rome, Italy to pick up Betsy and begin the next and most exciting phase of our lives.  After two years on the road, we reckon we have learned loads about how to live in our mobile plastic box on wheels, still we are amazed at how often we pick up new tips from people we meet.  As everyone knows, it is far better to learn from other people’s mistakes than your own and we are so grateful to the motorhoming community for being so open and willing to share from their experience.

We took our love of cooking on the road with us and we take cooking lessons in many of the countries we visit.

We started this website as a way of sharing our travels, photographs, lessons, recipes,  and experiences with other motorhomers, friends, family and anyone else with an interest in what we are doing.
