RV Roadtrip From Portugal to Gibraltar

Somewhere in the back of my mind Gibraltar had always seemed intriguing. Maybe the importance “The Rock” played during World War 2, maybe the extreme southern point and the strait itself and the thin line between Europe and Africa, maybe the Ballad of John and Yoko? At any rate, the idea that we could drive […]

RV Roadtrip – Spain to Portugal

With our quest to get to Portugal nearly within reach we pointed the Hymer towards Isla Cristina, our last stop in Spain before crossing the border. After rushing across Spain we decided it would be worthwhile to spend 2 nights at this campsite right on the ocean. (Well the ocean was just across the road […]

RV Roadtrip Across Central Spain

After our adventure in Andorra it was pedal to the metal across Spain.  Ok, not quite pedal to the metal, we try and limit our driving to about 300 kilometers a day in the camping car.  We do occasionally push further than that depending on what campgrounds are open but honestly that can be a […]

Across the Pyrenees mountains to Andorra

This was a drive Shani was NOT looking forward to! Our plan was to leave the wonderful Le Floride Camping Village just north of Perpignan, France, and drive through the Pyrenees and into Spain and then on to Andorra. It’s not a particularly long drive but for us things take a lot longer than Google suggest […]

From Burgundy to the South of France

From Beaune we headed directly south toward Aix-en-Provence with the idea of maybe meeting up with our friends again when they got there. As it turned out, that really wasn’t in the cards but we still stayed in the area just in case. Our first destination was a small village called Orange. As camping sites […]

Travel in Burgundy – Destination Beaune, France

With a few days to spare before our friends were arriving in Beaune for our meetup, we decided to explore some of the other towns and villages in the Burgundy region. We were still getting the feel for living and traveling in the RV so some short trips would be good for our learning curve.  […]

Leaving Paris and A Week Around Northern Burgundy, France

After Paris, it was time to head south to start registering our RV in France. Sens is a village about 1 1/2 hours south of Paris and Veron is just a bit further. As we are new to all of this it took us a bit longer. Our French agent Phill (a Brit) has his […]

Our 4 Days in Paris

Leaving La Croix du Vieux Pont was a much more straight forward experience than getting there thankfully! We pointed the Hymer south toward Paris and away we went. If I’m being honest, this was the bit I was most concerned about.  I did not want to get turned around and lost in Paris driving a […]

Road Trip from Luxembourg to Belgium and into France

The trip from Luxembourg to France really was a whirlwind trip for us and being new to RV life everything takes at least twice as long as we were expecting. That has probably been the most surprising thing for me.  Setting up everything once we get to a campsite or tearing everything down when we […]

Luxembourg Stuck in the Mud (Road Trip to Paris, Part 1)

As we mentioned in the last post, we took possession of the RV on Thursday afternoon after getting to know the fundamentals of how the vehicle works.  Of course, this was a lot to take in and so we videoed a bit of it and that has proved to be very helpful. The chemical toilet […]
