Gwithian, Cornwall

It’s a bit like being at a silent retreat. No one talks to each other (unless you’re friends and came together). I mean I don’t know if it’s the same all over, but this is just my first impression. We arrived here to Gwithian farm Friday afternoon. This morning (Sat) I went to do the washing up at the communal washing up sinks. But no one said hi. There were smiles and nods – but no sound. Even to the extent that the couple who were next to me at the sinks, where walking back up as I was walking down again cuz I forgot something, were laughing together and then stopped as they saw me and gave me funny looks. I don’t know what was going on; if they were actually talking and laughing about me, or just thought it better to be quiet when walking past a stranger on a campsite ?!

But later in the day it seemed better to me. Especially when I had Casper with me. He makes people smile, so they say hi.

We’re gonna be here for a whole week. So will see if it gets better.


I never saw those people again. And from there mostly everybody was nice and spoke to me. But like I said, when a kid is with you people smile, and sometimes laugh.

First blog post

Welcome to our van life blog

Hi World.

We are Jonny, Lou and Casper (2) in our Fiat Ducato (5), called Homer.

We will travel around Europa (England included), to experience life and God in our lives.

This blog is to share our travels and life with people who would like to know. We’ll let the Holy Spirit lead us in where we’re going.

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

The Bible NIV – John 3:8

Though, this is not a travel blog just yet. As we are staying in Bristol, UK to live our lives for one more year, until we have saved up some money, to then go travelling.

That means for now it’s a VAN LIFE BLOG. Welcome on board.
