It’s tough to be inconspicuous while you’re riding a psychedelic orange-and-yellow Nineteen Seventies VW campervan around the sun-soaked lanes of Ibiza. Schoolchildren wave, boys hoot, strangers, need pictures, and, even as eyeballs might roll while the van stalls on a steep slope, the overall VDub love more than makes up for the occasional embarrassment. On Dav, I’m on the White Isle with my buddy Vicky for campervan damage. This summer, traditional van rent firm WeDubYou has delivered Ibiza to the locations wherein it rents out its old-
faculty kombis. It’s an option possibly really worth considering, given the excessive price of villas and resorts here in the entire season. To feature to the amusing, I’ve signed us up for a different yoga bundle. Rather than hedonistic partying, we plan to tap into Ibiza’s laid-back, hippy modify ego – pootling alongside at our very own pace and having private yoga training in stunning, carefully chosen places around the island. After a quick intro to the van from Liverpudlian Paul, who runs WeDubYou Ibiza, we’re off. It looks like driving a bus, but I soon get the dangle
of it. (even though Vicky’s helpful comments, consisting of “shouldn’t you be in third now” or “the indicator’s nonetheless on” advocate, she would possibly disagree.) We head north-east to Es Canar and tenting l. a. Playa, a lovely little campsite with an exceptional bar right at the seashore, in time for a nightcap under the celebrities.
Going to bed hasn’t been as enjoyable because I camped in the garden when I was six: we pop up the roof and hunker down before midnight (sheets, snoozing luggage, and pillows are provided). Launched in France in 2013 by Brits Tony and Yvette Martin, WeDubYou is already going great guns in Bergerac and Girona, Spain. Ibiza is its first franchise, run through Paul and spouse Louise, who bought their bistro commercial enterprise lower back home to transport here, with four vans available on the island and plans for extra. New Zealand
is every other new choice for 2016, with California in the pipeline for next year. It goes without pronouncing that the vans have names: except Pucci, which I’m using, there’s Flirty, protected in calm animated film-style plant life, twister with decor stimulated by the ice lolly, and Sadie, a traditional in plain white. All holidaymakers would need a lot, from fridge/freezer and gas cooker to SatNavs and Bluetooth audio system. The add-on VIP package deal brings neighborhood chocolates and bubbly on arrival, the seaside package towels, seashore bag, mask, and snorkels. The trucks all have pop-up roofs, and though two might sleep four, alternative two are more suitable to just three human beings. Extra our bodies could continually use a tent.
