Dave the motorhome is resting within the secure walls of Hotel Sangho in Tataouine (N32.91455 E10.41648). We’ve had an amazing day working our way slowly south to Tataouine from our kipping spot in the Ksar at Metameur. We took the scenic route and stopped off at a few Ksour on the way. We’ve shot so many photos today it’s a good job we don’t use film any more – we’d have used up 10 rolls! So instead of my usual long wordy post, I thought I’d let the pictures do the talking (in glorious big size) – along with captions of course!
Looks awesome,loving the pics of the old motors! thats what were into lol
Your van look so much brighter inside than ours too! maybe just the sunlight tho :P
Noticed you have air con,have you used it much? were considering getting it for ours for the dogs but suppose its a bit late now….doubt we would need it in europe as much as you would over there anyway.
Keep safe :)
Hi Pete! The air con is some sort of evaporative air thing, which is supposed to be able to drop the inside air temp by a few degrees. It pumps water from a reservoir to the roof-mounted evap unit, all running off 12V. We’ve never got it to work properly, and only ever needed it in 40 degrees heat in Croatia and Bosnia in the middle of summer. I’d not bother with one, it was already fitted when we found Dave. Hah, we’ve had more sunlight today, been a great day and odd looking at photos on Facebook of snow back home, hard to imagine when you’re in a desert! Cheers, Jay
Love your blog. Will be looking at it daily. Looking at a Hymer motorhome from the same year as doing your trip is a dream, but no idea how it could work with kids and work commitments. Amazing photos, very inspiring!
With no kids we were able to save up and go – we’ll get ourselves some new work commitments when we get home :) Dave is a great van, the Hymers from around this era were really well made. Be sure to keep in touch and let us know your plans – it would be great to meet up on the road one day.
