Cor Blimey Strike a Light Guv’nor

We have just arrived at the Caravan Club’s Crystal Palace site and driving the Beast through London has to be one of the barmiest things I’ve ever done – roads with a 7ft width restriction and a toll of £1, what’s that all about. My advice – don’t bother with Sat Nav. I didn’t realise that the site is literally on the land where The Crystal Palace once stood so I was pretty excited to be able to see the ruins in the neighbouring park. It’s hard to imagine how vast the place must have been. Got chatting to some very nice locals who told me a little of the history and pointed out there’s a museum – which I will be visiting at some point. This place is heaven for a history and architecture freak like me. The best news is that somebody has cancelled so we are now staying here until next Monday. Lots to see and do – can’t wait.

Scarlet haired veggie/coeliac/tattooed/charity shop loving rebel sold everything to take to the road with 3 Yorkies in a campervan to discover the meaning of life & blog about it. It all went well for 18 months but then a flippin bloke walked into my life and turned it upside down so now the travelling has come to a halt but I still live in the van but in a field - marvellous :o)
