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.…

Our motorhome destinations

With campsites in the UK opening again after the Coronavirus crisis and many European countries opening their borders again it feels like nearly every motorhome owner is getting ready to get back on the road. We last used our motorhome in March when we visited Burrs Country Park near Bury and we should be in Europe now, but that's now been delayed until September. We have visited our motorhome in storage a couple of times and even took a picnic…

Coronavirus stops motorhome travel plans

Burrs Country Park
It certainly is strange times that we live in. Having to stay at home has given me time to write a motorhome article, the first one for a while. We were due to fly to Oslo last Saturday before joining a Hurtigruten voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and the North Cape and back, but, like many other people, we have postponed the trip until November. We had lots of travel planned for 2020 but who knows now when we will…

Visiting Britain’s Greatest Palace.

We have found ourselves being in the position to brag about visiting Britain's greatest palace and probably one of France's most beautiful chateaux, Chenonceau, all in the space of about a month. Blog article about Chenonceau here. After being back in the UK for a few weeks, after our six weeks trip to France, it was time to make the most of the English summer and head off again for a mini motorhome adventure to Oxfordshire. Where is Britain's greatest…

How to wash a motorhome in 6 hours.

Our 2 year old motorhome looks like new today, because its been cleaned! I have found it very difficult to properly wash our motorhome. The main problem is getting access to the roof. I have known for a few months that our motorhome roof needs attention due to the fact that it has somehow accumulated a layer of grime on it. Despite going through several torrential downpours on our recent trip to France the grime on the roof has stubbornly…

Chenonceau – Possibly the best château in France.

Once in a while we all visit somewhere that is so steeped in history, in such a beautiful location and an incredible piece of architecture that the place leaves a lasting impression on you - such a place is Château de Chenonceau. Camping Le Moulin Fort After consulting my trusted Camper Contact app. I decided the best place to stay near to the château itself was Camping Le Moulin Fort, and it turned out to be a good choice. We…

Honfleur – Motorhome heaven or hell?

The French love motorhomes. They offer freedom and flexibility, the chance to stay in fantastic places relatively cheaply and in reasonable comfort. France realised decades ago that if overnight parking was provided then motorhome owners would spend their money in not just tourist hotspots but in small towns and villages. As I write this blog I have literally seen hundreds of motorhomes today, of all sizes and age. Honfleur must be the centre of the motorhome universe, because it offers…

Canoeing the Dronne from Brantome

Perigueux in The Dordogne is well worth a visit. The motorhome aire is on the River L'Isle and only about 500 metres from the beautiful town centre. It costs only €6.61 to park a motorhome for 24 hours. We arrived at about 1pm, spent a few hours walking around the old town and left the following morning. That's what we like about motorhome touring. Short drive, a few hours exploring, stay a night and move on. We haven't seen many…
