Our Incredible Europe Roadtrip Video…

Ever wondered what it would be like to drive through Europe? Well here’s your chance! Craig and I spent 7 months driving across 23 countries and exploring some phenomenal places. During the roadtrip I sporadically stuck my arm out the window and took snaps of the road ahead. The scenery blew us away, let’s see…

Life in our campervan | One crazy Europe roadtrip

So, 7 months and 23 countries later, and we are back on British soil just in time for Christmas. Europe has blown us away, it’s right on our doorstep and just waiting to be explored beyond the much visited cities. It’s the varied cultures, diverse scenery and cute villages that have wowed us and it’s…

Doesn’t get better than this – The Swiss Alps

Five kilometres from the Swiss border Pablo started making a horrible squeaky noise and we figured it was the brakes. We couldn’t believe our luck; Switzerland is renowned for being stupidly expensive so a trip to the mechanic sounded really exciting for our budget! We were so annoyed as it was amazing weather at last….

Incredible coastal drives in Croatia

There’s a 10km section along Croatia’s coastline that belongs to Bosnia. We’re not covered on our insurance to drive there, even though it’s a tiny, tiny section to drive, with our luck we’d probably crash. A bit like how we crashed in Hungary, the only country in Europe that fines you if you have an…

Italy – the India of the West

After a 10 hour ferry from Greece, we reached the top of Italy’s heel at Bari. An announcement told us to head down to the car deck, so off we all went. To get to the lower deck though, we had to squeeze our way through trucks. The gaps between them were the width of…

Change of Plans – We’re off to Italy

Travelling is easy breezy until decisions have to be made. We’d hoped to drive through Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo but since looking into our insurance it turned out we weren’t covered. I’ve read you can buy it at the border which were we thinking about doing but couldn’t find out how much it would all…

Diving through snow in Tranylvania

We wanted to make the most of the Carpathians so decided to drive the Transfagarasan route which is the 2nd highest mountain road in Romania and plies through the Fagaras Mountains. It started off really dramatic, we could see our road ahead of us curving around a sheer wall. It was like being back in…

Up’s and Down’ in Poland

Poland hasn’t been as exciting as I’d expected. We visited some lakes in the north and finally had a day relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of cities after the Baltic’s. They’ve been the only swimmable lakes we’ve come across in Poland, the ones down south were murky and rubbish ridden. We woke before…

Pablo’s near death in Poland

So we managed to buy the simple parts needed for Pablo from an auto shop, but Nissan couldn’t fit us in for 4 days. As it was an easy job replacing two bushes to stop a clanky noise, we could get any garage to do it, so we asked around. Kia charged double Nissan, and…
