We have moved... come on over to www.annastravels.com


I have now moved this site over to annastravels.com where you can continue to hear about my journeys through van conversion, travel and life. I would love it if you would come on over to hear more!

However, given that I am in fact a technological idiot, if you are no longer getting RSS feeds, spot anything broken in the new site, etc etc etc, then I would really appreciate it if you dropped me an email at annapearce5683@gmail.com to let me know about it.

Thank you Blogger.  Here's to a Wordpress future!

The van is back on the road

It is back on the road people, it is back on the road.

After 18 months of confinement to the barn, the van is back on the road!

MOTed, taxed, insured, seemingly none the worse for wear following its' little sabbatical from driving (asides from a slight issue with the pressure in the clutch which I am hoping will resolve itself with use) and ON THE ROAD.

As in... it is now my car, as in I can drive it, as in this is really happening and this is my little house and it is on the road.

Did I mention the van is back on the road?

Major step forward.

Am I ready?

Recently a terrifying feeling of unpreparedness for my upcoming (2 months away!) travels has been seeping through my consciousness and filling me with self-doubt and mistrust.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I wrote a to-do list which turned to be 2 A4 pages long and counting...

Maybe it is because all my recent eBay van purchases seem to gone missing or been entirely different to what was advertised...

Maybe it is because it turns out that getting motorhome insurance for EU travel in a imported, left hand drive, self build conversion for an under-25 driver is actually, it would seem, impossible...

Maybe it is because everything I do seems to have hidden costs and unforseen complications...

Either way I seem to need a little lift each day just to get me through.  This was today's.

"‘Feeling ready’ is a fantasy. The process will always be confusing and uncertain. It’s normal and unavoidable.

...Self-doubt is a constant friend to the creative soul.
...Storytelling is intuitive. It comes from within us. Everything you need to learn will come from the voice within. Listen to it. Allow it to guide you. Begin."
And so, again, I begin.
