We booked some one way tickets to London in the start of April 2011, without a time frame or a clue as to what we were going to do when we got there. All we knew is we wanted to see as much of the UK and Europe as we could. We looked into rail passes, multiple flight tickets, tour groups and couldn’t find anything that suited our budget, that would last as long as the Wicked Van Tour. Our mate back home had been harping on about it since he got back from VT 2010, and all his stories and photos looked awesome. So after comparing all the different ways of travelling around Europe, we decided a Wicked Camper was the go.
With nearly two months until ‘Van Tour’ officially started and having been in London for two or so weeks already, we thought to ourselves, what are we going to do? Work in a London pub? Nahhh, lets go see the UK. We wanted to spend our 90days of Van Tour outside the UK, so we thought bugger it, we’ll get another Wicked Camper and go and see England, Ireland Scotland and Wales. Plus this would give us a bit of a warm up to life in a van for 3 months!
It had only been a little over a week since we finished off our own little 42day wicked Van Tour of the UK and Ireland in “Hip Hop.” We had a ball just doing our own thing, following the coast of England from Brighton to Cornwall, then up into Wales, over to Scotland, across to Ireland for a week and then back through the highlands of Scotland and finally back into London.
