We’re Marianne and Chris, a married couple from the UK. After some life changing events we decided that life was just too short. We sold all our belongings, bought an old Campervan & rented our house to travel full time. The aim is to attempt to visit every country in the world in either our van or with a backpack. We started videoing our travels for our family and then decided it was a wonderful way to document and share our adventures.

Our latest adventure started in January 2020 when we left the UK in an attempt to drive our van all the way around the world. Let the adventures continue.

In turkish, we have a saying: "Mart kapıdan baktırır, kazma kürek yaktırır."

Literal translation: "March makes you look through the door, makes you burn pickaxe and shovel.

Similar saying in english: "Cast never a clout till may is out"

What wonderful people you are to feed the stray animals . It breaks my heart to think they have no home, and they are all such friendly animals 😊

I have so enjoyed your travels. I have a home in cunda turkey. I'm American and my husband is Turkish. I've been taking my kids to turkey since they were 6 months old. We all love Turkey so much. My Turkish family is amazing.. watching this in America makes me a little less home sick for seeing them again . InshaAllah soon. Thank you both for filming this it has helped my spirit through this long year.

There is a Turkish Yutuber for the attention of the passengers, I think the cars are the same as yours, you will be very comfortable if you put them in a bakin and they will even help you.

So pleased the new mattress was a good fit, I’d give anything for 15 degrees at the moment! But saying that we have been forecast 21 for this Tuesday for one day only then back to low temperatures! Lockdown eases for us tomorrow woohoo 🙌

I would far rather see you doing jobs on Trudy than stuffing your faces with yummy chocolate cake!

I was very excited while watching, too, if it would go to sleep instead of the bed 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
