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.…

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,…

Hardanger Tourist Route – the ultimate driving experience.

I think I have discovered the ultimate motorhome driving experience!  The amazing Hardanger Fjord tourist road  includes narrow mountain roads perched hundreds of feet above fjords, very long tunnels with roundabouts in, tunnels that spiral upwards through whole mountains, an incredible suspension bridge linking two tunnels and a road that runs over the largest plateau in Europe at 3,500 ft. This tourist route in Norway is not for the novice driver but it is sensational, as I will try and…

Visiting Bergen with a motorhome

The E39 is a major road that runs north to south in the west of Norway. For such a major road it can be very narrow and winding, but it runs through fantastic scenery and it was on this road that we set off driving south to visit Bergen with a motorhome. If you don't like driving through long tunnels then don't visit Norway because Norway has over 1,000 tunnels, including one over 15 miles long. On our drive to…

Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Norway.

How would you recover a motorhome from the bottom of a Norwegian fjord 1,300 metres deep? This was the question that briefly ran through my mind whilst we were on the Kaupanger to Gudvangen ferry that runs daily on Sognefjord, Norway's longest and deepest fjord. Luckily, there was no ferry disaster that day so we never got to find out the answer to that question, but I can confirm that Nærøyfjorden is a UNESCO area for very good reason. Sognefjord…
