First campsite

First campsite

Tuesday 16 of Apr 2019

This is our first campsite it is quite good but you have barely anything in the village so that is why I don't like it much.Its in Cornwall and its called Doubletrees Farm.
We named our caravan Niña which means “little girl” in Spanish and it was one of Christopher Columbus three boats La Pinta, La Santa Maria but he preferred La Niña. He used them to discover America.
I’m quite happy that we’re going soon! The
subjects I’m doing while I’m Home schooled are:

• English
• Math's
• Science
• Topic
• Geography
• History
• Technology/computing
• PE - Physical Education
• RE – Religious Education
• Art
• Foreign languages
• Music
• Cooking
• EE – Emotion Education

• Social Studies & Civics
• My favorite is ART!!!

Fursdon Farm

Fursdon Farm

Friday 2nd of Aug 2019

Breaking news! we are now going to be leaving around February because it took more time then expected and my mum was asked to stay longer at her work Niña is getting on quite well to be honest. We have found an amazing campsite called Fursdon Farm. Fursdon Farm is a small south facing, family owned camping and caravanning site situated on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor near Liskeard, Cornwall. Their hideaway site is ideally situated for access to beaches and moorland in south east Cornwall. Comprising of 5 acres in a quiet rural setting with access to electric hook ups, shower and toilet facilities the site provides a perfect base for touring in Cornwall and Devon. The site is open from the 1st April to the 31st October.
Fursdon is privately owned and the responsibility for the preservation of the house and the estate lies with the family. There are about 750 acres of mixed arable and woodland including the home farm. You can also reserve The Shepherds Hut
there is a breakfast option if you really wish. There is space for two people stay in. Fursdon Farm is an amazing place for your first campsite it might be a small place but you can always feel relaxed as it is a very cozy and quiet and very sweet you could also say “Home sweet home”. Fursdon Farm is close to Liskard so if your caravan or campervan is in/close you could always check it out (only of course if you want to) the people who own the place are amazing they help you whenever you need it they keep the place clean (very clean)

Hi! I'm Mathilde

Hi! I'm Mathilde

This blog will be about my life on the road!

I’m nearly nine. One of my friend’s mum Mary, gave me the idea to do this blog. I’m feeling excited but also nervous.
I was born in France and moved to England when I was three and I’ve lived here ever since.
My mum’s Italian and she’s called Daniela and my dad’s French and called Patrice. I’ve also got a little brother called William.
I go to France quite often because that’s where the rest of my family is.

My Favourite

My Favourite

Saturday 23 of Feb 2019

Today we went to see some motorhomes. The one I preferred was where you have the driver and above your head you have a bed where mum and dad will sleep. Then a little further you have a table and some chairs where me and William will sit when we are traveling. On the other side, you have the kitchen. At the far end, you have a double bed, under the bed you have storage which is also your garage. Next to the bed you have a door that leads you to the toilet.

Campervan or Caravan

Campervan or Caravan

Sunday 24 of Feb 2019

Today we were thinking about buying a caravan. The difference is that you have a car pulling it along and you can’t drive it from the inside. I would prefer to have a campervan, I really don’t know why I just do.

Chosen

Chosen

Saturday 6 of Apr 2019

Some time ago, we saw two caravans that we wanted so today we went to the same place, and the one my mum wanted was sold so we took the one me and dad wanted with an awning and solar panels. I’m happy we have the one I wanted because if you don’t like something it ruins everything even if it’s fun. I’m actually quite happy the one my mum wanted is gone not to be mean but it’s just easier to choose. It’s really weird we went to loads of campsites which had hundreds and hundreds of caravans and not one was fit for us either too heavy or too expensive. We’re planning to leave in June or July this year. We will start by the UK and then we will go to Ireland. It’s now sure we’re doing it.

Starting the voyage

Starting the voyage

Monday 23 Sep 2019

At Christmas, we will go down to France, I will go skiing and my brother will try. Then Mum and Dad will go and fetch our caravan/campervan or van,while me and my brother will stay in France and when they come back we will start by the south of Italy and go to places like Sicily, Rome and Malta. When we are leaving, I am going to be home schooled. It should be quite easy because my brother is still in Preschool. I am really excited to start travelling starting by Italy

No to the ambulance

Wednesday 25 of sep 2019

Yesterday we went to see an ambulance. I didn't really like it as the seat that William and me will sit is facing backward facing. Mum was the only one who liked it me and dad didn't like it at all.

choosing a college

choosing a college

We are starting to look at colleges, I really want to go to ICC (Ivybridge Community College), because all my friends go there and I have been there quite a lot of times for a gym and dance show. I will be visiting there on Tuesday. I also have the option of Kevicc Community College that I am visiting on Tuesday in two weeks.
I don't believe that 6 years ago I had only just started school.
