Couple Sell Up To Fund A Life On The Road In A £21,000 Motorhome

A Derbyshire family are living the dream after ditching the mundane 9-to-5 and buying a mobile home.

Rosie and Dan Beeson, along with their kids Monty, eight, and Winter, five, started their globetrotting adventure when they sold their home in Ilkeston last February.

The conventional home went for £90,000 and was replaced by a £21,000 Hymer 2.8 diesel just 24 hours later.

Rosie, a former HR specialist, told The Mirror: ‘We realised we didn’t want that 9-to-5 life, with no energy for family time and no money for holidays.

‘We sat down one evening and I said to Dan, “What do you think about selling everything to travel the world?”

‘His eyes widened. I believe he thought I was joking, but I’d been researching and had answers for all his questions.’

Rosie was not pulling his leg, and after some intensive motorhome research, Dan, 48, was very much on-board.

The family have now been in Wales, Ireland, Gibraltar, Portugal, Spain, France, Holland and are currently very much at home in Morocco.

‘It was a huge decision that we wouldn’t make overnight, so we both went away to think. Dan looked up everything there was to know about motorhomes and a week later, we sat down and he told me, “Let’s do it.” Not a single person said we were insane. Everyone thinks it’s amazing,’ Rosie added.

The pair said the driving force behind selling up and hitting the road was the fact that after work they would spend their evenings ‘exhausted at home’.

‘But now we sit outside our motorhome in a beautiful corner of the world and watch nature go by. I wouldn’t change it for anything,’ mused Rosie, who added that her children are learning more by seeing the world than if they were in school.

The family record their travels on their Facebook page – The Migratory Bees.

Recent posts have seen a string of images of picturesque landscapes across Morocco, where the family spent their ‘most relaxing’ Christmas yet, in the fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, and New Year’s by a campfire in the beautiful Atlantic coast city of Essaouira.

Rosie estimates the clan can survive until September when she’ll then have to work odd jobs to keep them on the road.

The family have their sights set on Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark.
