Shopping for some wheels

Thanks for all the support on the dress everyone - I am still deliberating (this is not unusual for me. Up until a couple of years ago I was going to get married in a pewter ballgown. so we'll see).

This weekend we are doing something fun and non-wedding related - shopping for a van!! we are heading off in a little while to drive our way to Russia. Then train/bus/drive/hitchhike/swim our way back to New Zealand. I am {very} nervous, but very excited too. I am also nervous about buying a van, as my {our} mechanical know-how is not great. But we'll be fine.

In my day-dreams we drive a van like this:

But have you seen how much these things go for these days?!? crazy!!

More likely we'll get something like this:


But it will still rock. Oh yes.

Julia you HAVE to get a VW van and paint it hippy colours. PLEASE?? for me?? remember it was our childhood dream to explore the world (or maybe just NZ - I can't remember the details!) in a painted hippy van. I can live my life vicariously through you!

I love this idea! And VW vans are crazy expensive! Hopefully you can find a middle ground between the VW van and that blue monstrosity!

Hi,

Here in Portugal the top one is known as "Pão de forma". Something like bread loaf.

Kind regards,

José

That sounds amazing! Except that I get car sick. It sounds like an amazing idea for someone who doesn't get car sick though!
