Before I describe Dokkum to you though I'll just fill you in on where we have been since touring Norway in our motorhome. The Oslo Fjord After experiencing the cultural highlights of…

Guide to visiting Oslo with a motorhome.

Our motorhome tour of Norway is in its final week and we have reached the capital city, Oslo.

Driving south on the E6 toll road felt strange because we drove on our first 3 lane motorway for nearly 2 months. The last 5 weeks have seen us driving our motorhome on mountain roads 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…

Coordinates N62°34'7", E7°45'19". Free overnight…

Our motorhome pitch had fantastic views of 220 peaks  across the fjord (so it says in the tourist information booklet) and the view is known as the Molde Panorama. I was feeling the effects of cleaning our motorhome though as I had a sore…

Seville 1 – Motorhome 0

A few days ago we were defeated! Our attempt to navigate to an overnight motorhome parking area in the centre of the glorious city of Seville had to be abandoned after our sat nav took us to a narrow cobbled street with a  few shops that looked nothing like a car park. I had carefully put the coordinates of the car park into our sat nav, but probably should have checked the address before confirming. I didn't! Now, when faced…
