Meek family set to hit the roads of Europe in a brand new Elddis Autoquest
A family from Nottingham looks set to continue their adventure into 2016 thanks to the loan of a brand new Elddis Autoquest motorhome.
Tim and Kerry Meek, who gave up their teaching jobs and sold their house in order to embark with their two children, Amy and Ella, on an adventure of a lifetime, have since travelled the length and breadth of the UK in their trusty Elddis Xplore whilst centering their journey on educating their two daughters in the process.
And now, Elddis has switched things up a notch, by inviting the Meeks to continue with more of their 'Ed-Venture', as it has been dubbed, in a bid to extend their journey courtesy of the new 2016 Elddis Autoquest.
The Meek family's story began in 2014 upon being presented with a four-berth Elddis Xplore, when they were set a challenge to visit 20 Caravan Club sites in 20 week, completing 100 tasks along the way.
Inexperienced in caravanning, the Meeks accepted the challenge under the premise that they would travel around the UK for one year, but the caravanning bug soon took hold and the Meek family has not returned to what could be considered reality since.
For 2016, the Meeks will be taking things further, as they plan to travel across Europe in their Elddis Autoquest, something having a motorhome should help aid.
Mum, Kerry, said: "The 6 berth motorhome provides a different flexibility and we are looking forward to a different way of travelling and living in the UK and Europe. The girls' learning will be extended to take in other cultures, language and life skills.
"In 2016 we will be visiting Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia as well as wild camping in the more remote parts of Scotland, on a quest for more Ed-venture."
"The first trip abroad, in January, will involve taking the motorhome on a ferry over to Spain and then spending a couple of months travelling through Spain and France, learning languages along the way and returning to UK in March," Kerry continued.
"We then plan to head up to Scotland and spend about six weeks wild camping in the more remote parts.
"As Summer approaches we are going to head over into Europe again but this time take the ferry over to the Netherlands, travel up through Scandinavia taking in parts of Germany and hopefully more countries on the way back."
