Would you like to make your van life adventures more spiritual? Then how about turning an ordinary road trip into a pilgrimage?
We’ve travelled thousands of miles in our old motorhome over the last few years. Now, in our latest ebook, Hobo Trudi tells the stories of pilgrimages we’ve taken along ancient routes in the UK.
If you love visiting sacred places or exploring ancient routes – and would like to make your next road trip more of a pilgrimage – you’ll find inspiration in each chapter of Meeting God in a Motorhome.
Meeting God in a Motorhome – 7 different pilgrimages in 1 book
In Meeting God in a Motorhome we explore the history, myths, and stories of 7 different routes and sacred places in the UK.
This is where we dig deeper into the heart of van life and journeying – way beyond the practicalities. This is where road trips connect you to ancient history and awakens something deep in your soul.
Pilgrimage #1 – The Holy Island of Lindisfarne
Becoming an island amidst life’s swirling ocean
The motorhome is our own desert island, a place of peace. Yet we must step out of the hab door into the crowds. Is it possible to carry tranquillity out into the storm of modern life?
Inner calm and serenity are forgotten in our hurried existence. On this pilgrimage, we discovered that this is not a new problem.
Pilgrimage #2 – The Pilgrim’s Way to Canterbury Cathedral
Medieval murder and childhood romance
Every one of us comes from a place of powerlessness – childhood. We carry our inner child with her hurts and injustices still stinging.
This pilgrimage was taken on behalf of Hobo Trudi’s inner child. It gave her a chance to speak, to heal, and to accept that the adult world makes less sense than she thought.
Pilgrimage #3 – Little Walsingham (known as England’s Nazareth)
A traditional pilgrimage
Pilgrimage has been practised over many centuries with various religions developing their own requirements. Walsingham, known as England’s Nazareth, is no different.
On this pilgrimage after we’d parked the motorhome, Hobo Gav chose to walk barefoot, Hobo Trudi in silence! Did it make any difference?
Pilgrimage #4 – North Wales Pilgrim’s Way
The difficult one
Using a three ton, thirty-year-old motorhome to complete a pilgrimage – closely following a hiking trail in mountainous countryside – is adventurous. Or lunacy.
This is the pilgrimage which gave us the most problems, but those were more of our own making than any vehicular limitations.
Pilgrimage #5 – Avebury Stone Circle and the Ancient Ridgeway
A pilgrimage with children
Can you combine a pilgrimage with a family holiday? How can everyone gain what they need from the experience?
On this pilgrimage along the ancient path known as the Ridgeway, taking in the magnificent stone circle at Avebury, we found out that compromise and teamwork were essential travel companions.
Pilgrimage #6 – Glastonbury
Light and dark and the inner struggle
Glastonbury is a spiritual home to so many. Maybe the last resting place of the legendary folk hero King Arthur. It is the heart centre of Britain.
And yet Hobo Trudi heard her inner demons screaming above the excited chatter of tourists and tinkling wind chimes. In a town where love and light is thrown like confetti, she realised that the messages from our darker sides may be undervalued.
Pilgrimage # 7 – Bury St. Edmunds – St Edmund Way
Home! Can a van really be a home when it never settles? Or is home an emotional space – a feeling of belonging that we carry inside rather than a physical location?
On this pilgrimage, walking and at times driving along the St. Edmund Way, Trudi tells the story of St Edmund, leading us full circle back to our home county of Suffolk.
