If you hadn't heard, Nigel and his wife Helen have set off for Croatia for a two-week late spring break.

 

Keeping it real

But with more than a few potential brand-new outfits to choose from, the Donnellys have decided to keep it real by using the budget combination of a 1996 Volvo 850 SE (cost: £470) and a 1986 Sprite Alpine C (cost: £380). In fact, the awning that Isabella has kindly lent them for the trip is worth well over double this particular car and caravan combo.

 

Nigel will be making regular updates of his progress on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. You can also keep an eye on his editor's blog for regular updates. We wish them both well on their adventure – travel safe!
