About Us

What’s this ‘On the Way’ all about then?

Well, we’re Tom & Aileen a married couple who started blogging to keep a record of our adventures. Many a night we would be sitting and trying to recall an event but couldn’t remember the details. Please feel free to read our blogs, written with a blend of observational humour and self-awareness as we travel, try to stay healthy and accept that we are not as young as we think we are. The little things ‘On the Way’ through life get forgotten and can be the most important.

Tom is a retired mental health nurse who still manages to make Aileen’s heart flutter but it’s usually in response to Tom regularly announcing ‘’I’ve got an idea!’’ Still full of life and amazed by this world that we live on, Tom is embracing retirement.

Aileen has recently retired and has just as much energy as Tom. Photography, Jewellery making, sewing, knitting, gardening, keeping fit, cycling, baking and still has time for Tom’s ‘’Ideas’’!

We have recently purchased Ziggy, our Devon Aztec Campervan, having said a fond farewell to Dora, our Autosleeper Duetto, who looked after us during several years of adventures but all good things come to an end and hopefully Ziggy will share lots of new adventures with us. We have visited many campsites over the years and we are slowly adding them to our campsite information page.

We’re not all about campsites. We are also happy to share other travel tales, life stories and helpful information.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Tom & Aileen
