A VW Camperís Travelling Journal 

Hi and Welcome to this website.

VW Clockwork Orange is the nickname that Iíve adopted for a 1980 Type II Volkswagen Camper, itís had an interesting life and you would be surprised to see itís been around quite a few places already, by looking in the Photo Gallery will show you hundreds of images of all the countries and places itís been to. The gallery is quite easy to navigate around and the images are more often than not accompanied with a comment to help explain whatís going on.
To find out where the VW is now click onto VW Journal and I will have hopefully updated itís location with a date attached. If you have any questions (not too technical) about the VW or the trip in any aspect leave your comments on there and I will try get back to you with an answer. The same applies for me if you want to know where I am and what I am up to then click onto Markís Journal and please feel free to post me a comment or some feedback.
About The Van is a very short history of the VW to date and Employment shows what types of work I can be employed in to help fund my/our travels.

August 2014: Tour De Baltic - Wednesday, August 13, 2014


In the search for more flags, the VWs nearest natural challenge is in a Tour de Baltic, where it is hoped we can pick up FOUR MORE FLAGS (full story)

May 2014: In Reverse - Tuesday, April 08, 2014


In Reverse - with Ric COULSON POSTPONED  - unfortunately Ric Coulson a shipmate of mine has had to POSTPONE his Guiness Book of Records attempt for walking backwards (In-Reverse) from John O'Groats (JOG) to Land's End (LE).

VW Clockwork Orange will now go through a refit on the interior as preparations are made to prepare for another continental road trip. Updates on the refit will be in the Photo Gallery in the "History of the VW"  2014folder.

. . . .likewise when the trip gets underway (probably August) you can follow the progress in the Photo Gallery section under "2014 Make it Count" folder, as it passes through countries, don't forget to click on the comment of each photo as this will provide a narrative.

. . . furthermore, any new countries visited will be adourned with the coveted flag stickers on the VW and an additional post will be made in the flag sticker section. vwclockworkorange currently stands at 38 flags visited from as far away as Iceland, Morocco, Bosnia and Malta to name but a few.

. . . . people and VW we meet will also feature in their own respective folders - so look out for yourself or your VW if we are lucky enough to meet up with you

Bye for now - safe travels Mark
