About This Blog

This is our story of how one day we decided to sell our house, quit our jobs and go on a motorhome adventure.  We want to wake up in a different place nearly every day and open our door to beautiful scenery and fresh air. That’s the dream anyway. This blog is about that journey.…

Taking a motorhome to one of the most stunning places in Europe

There is a really good place for motorhomes to park with views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains she said. I would love to go there but it’s up a fairly steep road she said! No problem said I. “we have just done the steepest roads in northern Europe on our motorhome tour of Norway, so if we can do those roads we can do anything”. We are, of course, now in southern Europe and more specifically in The French…

How to stay cool in a motorhome during a heatwave

It's the busiest holiday weekend of the summer in France and most people are heading south or to the Atlantic coast. Not us! We are driving from Bordeaux in the west of France to Lake Geneva in the east. The plan is to take several days over it. The forecasted heatwave has arrived and it's still 36C at 8pm which poses the question of how to stay cool in a motorhome. This is the warmest weather we have experienced since…

How to live in a motorhome fulltime

As we approach our one year anniversary of living fulltime in our motorhome I thought it would be good to reflect on how we feel now, what we have learnt and our experience of living in a motorhome. In the last 12 months we have visited 10 countries and covered 12,000 miles. Along our journey we have seen many fantastic places and loved every minute. It's a life experience that I think more people should try and do when they…

France Passion, Bastille Day & The World Cup final

Our plan for this motorhome trip to France is to drive south to the Bordeaux area and to spend several nights staying at France Passion motorhome stopovers. Just in case you think this type of stopover is something dodgy I can tell you that it's an organisation offering motorhome stopovers at vineyards, farms and regional product producers. Overnight stops are free and you have the opportunity to sample the products, although there is no obligation to buy. Around the Gironde…

Back to France and a tank battle

France is heaven for motorhomes. It's got thousands of 'Aires' and campsites. The French realised many years ago that if they encouraged motorhomes to visit then their owners would spend their money in the many towns and villages that have places to park motorhomes for the night. This is in stark contrast to the UK where many local authororites have no desire to have visits from motorhomes. The UK is missing out on lucrative tourism by adopting this short sighted…

Back to ‘traffic jam’ UK

The UK countryside is beautiful in summer, but as we arrived in Hull on the overnight ferry from Rotterdam all we were met with was a huge traffic jam on the A63 out of the city. The UK I fear has become a huge car park. It was a shock to the system after quiet traffic jam free roads in Norway. Rotterdam to Hull ferry I'm really impressed with this ferry service. The Pride of Rotterdam ferry, operated by P&O,…
