So, this week we have opted for a change of vehicle that should enable us to visit more of the county and to stay out longer, camping in Pembrokeshire.
‘Poppy’ is our 32 year old VW Caravelle Campervan T25 1.9 litre diesel home from home on the road and will be base for these roving reporters this summer.
