Travelling with one’s partner in a campervan for a year provides an excellent, if not gruelling, test for newly married couples; it amounts to “couples therapy” on wheels but without the therapist. Not only does one learn a tremendous amount about one’s partner but also about oneself. There are a few endeavours that couples should avoid; three that come to mind are wallpapering, navigating, and being in each other’s company 24/7. After travelling for a year with my partner, I can say with absolute authority that putting up wallpaper with one’s partner is nothing short of life-threatening. Navigating and constant companionship did put us to the test a few times but fortunately there were no casualties. None that I noticed.

Think “Fawlty Tourists on Wheels” and that would accurately sum up our year-long meanderings in Sharki, our trusty wannabe 4x4 campervan that took multiple terrains in her 2.8-litre stride.

If one has a year to spare, I highly recommend throwing caution to the wind and embarking on a zero-itinerary adventure with an open mind, a strong stomach and your very best friend at your side.

Valma Muir was raised and educated in Southern Africa and she relocated more recently to the Isle of Man. Her interests and careers have spanned both creative and technical disciplines and the cornerstone of her approach to life is based on curiosity. She is very close to her three adult sons, Kai, Joshua and Blake; and is inseparable from her two cats, Coco and Monty. Travelling remains one of her greatest passions. Although she is no longer married to Kobus, her partner in Sharki and the Naked Travellers, they have remained firm friends, dedicated parents and have enjoyed many a travelling adventure together.
