Travel From Paris to Poland

Dzien dobry from Poland! I have to admit that since the last blog, we’ve not spent one night in the van. But that will soon change! So anyway, how did we get here? I spoke last week about the ferry crossing to France, but, as you can imagine, with Covid & Brexit both having something […]

How to hold your own client review meetings

In a previous blog, we talked about why we at Pink Pig hold annual review meetings with you guys.  For us, having these more informal-style chats allows us to get to know each other on a more personal level, to understand your goals, and to tailor what we do to be the best we can […]

Bonjour! … Merci… Oui, oui baguette?! That is the full extent of my French, I’m ashamed to say. But I thought I should try considering I’m writing this from our first European country in the van! That’s right, we’ve braved the borders and we’re on the continent! Let me fill you in on the week […]

Wow, another week has flown by! People have been asking how long we’ve been in the van now … my immediate response is ‘’oh, about a month’’ … but given that we’re on blog number 8, I guess it’s closer to 2…! We’ve been enjoying the beauty of the South coast this week. I know […]

Hello again from me, who is still pretty clean! What has my life come to that I’m introducing myself like that? But yes, another beautiful week has been had. The weather continues to be beautiful.

Isle of Skye, Whiskey & Dolphins

Hello from Scotland’s cleanest bookkeeper! This has been a week of finding showers, albeit in some unexpected places – but if you can’t be too sure when the next one will be, you take every opportunity! I’ve had 3(!) warm showers this week, which my hair has been very grateful for. The lochs are beautiful […]

Ellie's travel adventure - sunny Scotland

Guys. It hasn’t rained. Every day I’m waiting to hear the pitter patter on this van roof, but nothing. I can’t believe it. We’ve been in Scotland getting on for 2 weeks and we’ve had not a drop! I’m certain that even in the rain this place is beautiful, but my goodness, with the sun […]

Hello once again from the van, after what I have to say has been a really lovely week, so thank you, UK!

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Wedding Party & Wales

Wales & wedding party

Hello! I’m checking in from the Brecon Beacons this week, enjoying listening to my husband trying to wrap his head around the Welsh road signs. (He’s complaining that the language makes no sense .. but then I reminded him that he’s Polish, and that we feel very much the same about his language!) Anyways, we’re […]
