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)

you are two good souls..That is why you meet this amazing kindness! :)

If an Englishman wants to wear a socks and sandals combo in his castle (or campervan) he shall do just that. Ali and Jula (sp??) are both legends for their kindness and generosity of spirit. That wee cat is gonna miss you when you leave :/ Take care.

An English man with sandals and socks... I have the feeling English people barely wear anything whole year around. Great that local media is covering you guys

We are not on board with the socks and sandals in any way shape or form :o( in fact we're shocked that you allowed it. So awesome though how everyone is helping and looking after you guys. Your positivity is attracted back to you! <3 xx

I have just seen you on Trt World and searched to subscribe. You have great energy. You will have a strict follower after all. Good luck in your route to happiness.

Seriously guys, you are an object lesson on how the world should be. You make a partner choice, and stick with it through the inevitable lows to achieve the highs. You realise that what you have now is vastly superior to what you would lose apart. I'm both impressed and jealous!

Funny. I did my wife’s hair 2 times, cut and color. Today she masked up and had it done by her salon who just reopened. I ‘did okay’ but. Be safe.
