Andrew told the Daily Record,

I left school at 17 and went to work in an office. I had a second job in McDonald’s to get the money to keep the car I needed to tow my caravan. I was able to take my first steps towards independence with it. I would go to Brighton or London and we would go clubbing. I was popular because I had a hotel on wheels.

Andrew loves to kitesurf.

Now aged 46, he’s already spent the last two years in his Airstream trailer, working near Kent and traveling three months a year touring the Scottish Highlands. He’s also taking classes in Gaelic.

At the beginning of 2013, I made a decision to learn some Gaelic. I’m now doing a course at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, the centre for Gaelic language.

What a view! It’s the Isle of Harris beach.

Beautiful view

For those in Scotland, Andrew will be at the Scottish Caravan, Motorhome and Holiday Show in Glasgow this year.
