The second to last day of our road trip was to Bewdley and CCCampers, the birthplace of iVan.

While Kristian did our 3000 mile check-up on the interior conversion, we took his car and explored Bewdley. It’s a lovely little town with a steam train station that looks like it is stuck in the 1940’s. Unfortunately we couldn’t take a ride on the steam train because of timing issues, but I would really like to go back and do the whole Severn Valley Railway journey  from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth. We found time for fish and chips at the station cafe and ice cream along the river. Priorities, right?

Our camp site for the night was Hopley’s Family Camping which was a bit too “family” for us, but it was our last night and from there it was only a 2.5 hour journey home the next day so we stuck it out.

Now we’re home and it is good to be back. Our tiny home feels like a mansion compared to iVan. We loved our Scottish road trip and we consider ourselves blessed that we only had one bad experience, Midge Attack 2014. We drove through the most amazing scenery, appreciated the wide open spaces and all the colours of Mother Nature. I came back very inspired – inspired enough for at least three crochet blankets!
