Road trip to Cornwall

This was as much of a test in preparation for a road trip to France first week in September 2018. This is really the first major trip in the camper van and, other than the odd night away locally it's a maiden voyage for Vera-Too

Headed down to Cornwall and stayed at Connor Downs close to St Ives for a few nights early August. Reasonable journey and stayed at North Somerset on the way down. The weather held off reasonably well!

Then, arrived at base camp in Connor Downs, met by a welcoming crowd and placed on a lovely pitch in a nice quiet area of the site. Spacious, clean and a lovely open aspect

St Ives, Hayle and the surrounding areas of West Cornwall boast some superb beaches and coastline, spent time on the beach and with family. A quick 4 night break to test out the van and find any tweaks in preparation for a road trip through France soon...

In conclusion, a great few days away and tested out the camper van, there's a few modifications to make and few changes internally, but otherwise the van performed really well

More to follow, and updates as the French trip unravels!
