We are Sandra and Nigel Walton, from the UK who love to travel. We have a motorhome in the UK, which we use to explore our own country and Europe.
In 2012, our son married a wonderful girl from San Jose, where they now both live. We visited last year, 2013 and bought an elderly (but little used) 25ft C Class RV (no slideouts),in which we hope to explore the USA when we visit over the next few years.
Our immediate plans are for a trip by road and Ferry to Alaska this Spring/Summer.
That was last year, and we had a great trip and met some wonderful hosts. Now we're back for a shorter trip, taking in some NP in Utah and Wyoming, then heading back to BC.
Nigel is a retired domestic appliance engineer and I'm a retired hotelier.
Apart from reading, exploring and meeting people (both of us), we also enjoy walking, cookery and photography (me) fishing, music and diy (Nigel), so would be happy to help out in any way we can - or just share travellers tales if we stay with you.
So far we've especially enjoyed what we in the UK call 'wild camping' in Norway and France. We've had one or two problems when we've tried it in the USA, notably being moved on by the police in LA. We did however find a fantastic spot outside Joshua Tree Park.
Windermere, Lake District, England
25 ft C Class Fourwinds. No slideouts
Had a great time meeting new friends, we had a toast of wine and enjoyed talking about places we have been to around the world. We would welcome them back Any time . They where are first guest. Carolyn and Jack. Morey. The Painted Cow Ranch
Their wine was fine . . . the conversation was great! we stretched their 3 day planned Vancouver stay to 5 days with an offer to take Negil fishing on the 5th day. We did go fishing at Stave Lake Reservoir and Nigel was the only one that caught something. . . a clump of seaweed! Sandra and Nigel have travelled the world and their stories wet our lips (along with their good wine!) Great and thoughtful guests! We invited them back in September when the salmon are running in the Fraser River.
What a pleasure it was to meet Nigel and Sandra. Enjoyed nice conversation and a good bottle of wine Sunday evening They are welcome back anytime.
