Hi, welcome to ‘the goodlife rides again’! We are writing this blog to tell you all about our year of adventure and travel. Having been made redundant/given up work Barbara and I are planning to ski, climb and explore our way around South America, and a few other places to boot. The slightly dubious plan is to buy and convert a van to live in along the way too. Hopefully you will all enjoy reading our blog and it will prove a useful resource to anybody wanting to explore some of the places we get to, or buy and live in a van in Chile!

Happy reading!

Tom and Barbara

P.S. for those of you who are either not of a certain age, or not native to the UK, check out the Good Life TV series on YouTube. Unfortunately Felicity Kendal isn’t coming with us!

  1. This should be a good read! To quote Mr Leadbetter: “You’re totally insane.” Best of luck from “Jerry”.

  2. Pictures please! Lots and lots of pictures of both scenery AND you guys on Facebook whenever you can manage it. Have fun and make you both come back home safely and in one piece at the end of it ♥
