About Us

Derek & Hayley Jones

Hello and welcome. Thank you for joining us on our adventure around Europe in ‘Jess’ our motorhome.

We are Del and Hayley Jones and this is our personal travel blog, we have nothing to sell or promote here, this blog is just a diary of our travels that we would like to share with our family and friends. We live on the Isle of Wight in the UK where we used to have a boat, a beautiful sailboat called ‘Stargazer’ who we looked after for 14 years. One day we decided that we would like to see Europe by road so we sold ‘Stargazer’ and bought ‘Jess’ a 6m motorhome made by Roller Team. She is a T590 circa 2018 and she has everything we need for a comfortable time on the road. Derek or Del, is a Stage and television lighting designer, Hayley is a television engineer who works for both the BBC and ITV.

Jess the van

This is our third outing into Europe in Jess where we are planning to take in the Champagne region of France, move east into Germany and do some time in the Black Forest, then south into Switzerland and take in some of the lakes before making our way north through France back to Calais and the short ferry hop back to the UK.

Whether you have followed us in the past or new to our blog we are pleased that you are here with us. Don’t be shy, say hello by leaving a comment or better still why not subscribe to our weekly update which you can of course unsubscribe to when ever you wish. It’ll be sad to see you go but we understand that you have plenty going on yourself…

Our very best wishes

Del, H and Jess
