Welcome to our
website for motorhome enthusiasts.
Follow our travels through Europe, the UK and the USA,
places we've stayed at and practical DIY tips and advice.
We use our motorhome
frequently throughout the year combining a trip to
Europe for a couple of months with shorter stays touring Great Britain.
To share our enthusiasm we started this website about twelve years ago
as a wintertime hobby to provide useful information about our travels,
places we've discovered and sites we have visited with plenty of our
photos. We have also added write ups of our tours around California
using motels in 2010 and New England in 2012.
We use a mix of campsites,
preferably more basic ones, and overnight stops at official "aires"
(but definitely not on motorways!) and occasionally free or wild
camping places when we have felt it was secure. All the sites we have
visited are listed, with GPS co-ordinates for recent years.
We've also added pages giving
practical hints about touring Europe and tips gained from our
experiences of using our various motorhomes.
We welcome feedback from our visitors and will try to answer any
questions you may have about motorcaravanning and touring. In the past
we have answered queries from Motorhomers in the UK, Australia and
Canada who are planning to visit Europe. We have also published trip
reports submitted by other motorhomers.
We hope you enjoy our site and find some useful information for your
back from our annual Europe trip - this year just dawdling around
France so it was pleasantly relaxed - details to follow soon
