We want to say THANK YOU to our main sponsors

Sponsored our van insurance for the EU and have paid for our Travel Insurance so we stay safe on the road. They provide cover for all campers and motorhomes and specialise in insurance for custom (self build) vans so if you have built your own or have a van or motorhome yourself then give them a call. We also use them for our own house insurance. The good news is as a Tread the Globe follower you get a preferential rate so give them a call (quote TREAD the Globe)

All other vanlifers who chose to stay are now regretting it and trying to get home.

They're all getting totally fed up, how the hell do you 2 keep so positive day after day and actually you've been self isolating longer than anybody out there.

there definitely is not much to brag about being from the UK these days but you two are definitely one of our national treasures and proving to the world we are not all totally miserable, so proud of both of you x

Chris turned in a one bottle performance for the TTG Drinking Game. :)

We finally got released from government mandated isolation today and got to go sailing. It was GLORIOUS! I know, I should have written, "lovely actually". ;)

All this media interest is fantastic for Tread the Globe...and also great PR for the little campsite. Seems like the manager is acting as your agent now! Lovely video as always....stay safe and stay sane(ish), it can't be too long now until your travels resume, fingers crossed.
