Couple converts lorry for lengthy trips around Europe

Staff writer

A professional couple have left life in the fast lane behind them to travel along the slow lanes of Europe in a 7.5 tonne lorry called Florry, which they have transformed into a unique mobile home.

Catherine and Chris quit their north London home and sold everything in it to buy the £15,000 Lorry on eBay, spending a further £10,000 to adapt it for their trip.

Along with their dog, Rolo, they spent seven months visiting several European countries before returning to the UK to save up for their next time. More on their story in our video, above.
