    Watawieh Yorle! (Hello and how are you? from Norfolk Islanders - South Pacific)



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hello!
    We are a family of four who ordinarily reside on the ideal sub-tropical paradise of Norfolk Island - a tiny speck in the ocean measuring 5km by 8km between Australia and New Zealand in the South Pacific.
    After spending the last four winters touring around New Zealand in motorhomes, we decided to take a year off and live the motorhome life European style.
    We have bought an Itineo are heading where the winds shall blow - literally as well as figuratively as she is a big gal!

    We have only just embarked on our journey and had imagined that the UK would be very similar to New Zealand for touring. That is, with convenient water and 'dump stations' located in practically every town. Turns out that the reality is a little different!

    Hence, we have signed up here! We love free camping and usually only stay in campsites once the laundry has reached epic proportions. Hopefully with the assistance of this site, and your collection of POI's, we may be able to get a little closer to that dream!

    We would welcome any tips or local knowledge - such as do 'dump stations' (for chemical toilet waste) actually exist in any form here besides in caravan parks? The same goes for grey water disposal? And what's with the lack of fresh water taps?

    Thanks for us,
    The Itineo Itinerants

    Hi and welcome along to the site. As a full member the POI info is as good as it gets for finding suitable water points etc. Hope your tour goes well.

    Hello guys, Welcome to our sucky country! Must be a bit of a culture shock if you are used to decent facilities. There is stuff out there somewhere, and no doubt you'll get lots of info and advice from the guys on here. Hope you enjoy the experience while you're here.
    ps:.we like pictures here, if you get chance to point a camera at anything!

    Welcome.
    You might be well advised to join the Caravan and Camping Club.
    This will give you access to their small,5 van sites and weekend meets away from campsites. Ideal for laundry and dump points,especially in poor weather. Also a chance to pick up local knowledge and tips about what's on.
    Enjoy your stay here.
    Keep us posted of your impressions and discoveries.
    To the pure in mind, all things are pure

    Have you arrived here?
    Join the national trust.
    Believe me Its worth the money, if you tried it in New Zealand and been disappointed you won't be on this island.
    A trip to the Lake District around the coast of Scotland, if you think New Zealand's got it all be prepared to be blown away to what you are about to witness.
    Europe has it all scenery and culture you can only dream of, your kids will never want to return.
    Good luck with your experience you will need years!
    John

    We are in NZ for 6 months and thoroughly enjoying the facilities. Leave any notion behind that the UK is better or even equal to NZ. Finding free water, dump stations or open toilets in the UK is a bit like a treasure hunt with half the clues missing. It helps if you have access to the poi's but even then it can be frustrating.
    Have fun.
    When I was younger I felt like a man trapped inside a woman’s body. Then I was born.
