What is it about camper vans that’s so appealing? The ideal escape, that romantic sentiment that ‘home is where you park it’, the simple freedom of it all. It does seem to be the common dream for countless people working a regular job – to just ditch everything and go and live on the road. It’s the antithesis to a standard working life.

Anthony Pearson and his girlfriend Becky have been on the move since late last year, cruising around Europe and Morocco, taking a casual route down the west coast of France, across northern Spain and then into Portugal, which is where I met up with them.
