RV Roadtrip – The Greek Peloponnese and Ancient Olympia

Our first stop after Ioannina was Camping Ionion Beach. While they have similar sounding names Ionion beach is actually about 300 kilometers (~186 miles) south of Ioannina. The drive was pretty uneventful and the highlight was the fantastic Rion-Antirion toll bridge as we neared Patras. As I’ve mentioned before, the driving style was tolerable in […]

RV Roadtrip – Albania to the Greek Peloponnese

After leaving the camping in Gjirokastër our first destination in Greece was the shores of Lake Ioannina (or Lake Pamvotida or Pamvotis I guess, depending on who you ask?) in a town also called Ioannina. Ioannina is a very old town. Traditionally Ioannina is dated to the 6th century when the construction of a new, “well-fortified” city by the […]

RV Roadtrip – Race Through Albania

After sharing a quizzical glance or two about the absurdity of our situation leaving Safari Beach in Montenegro, Shani and I were slightly apprehensive about our path south and into Albania. From the very start things were interesting. As we left Safari Beach our progress was halted by a herd of sheep, none at all […]

RV Roadtrip – The Coast of Montenegro

Leaving Kotor seemed pretty straight forward, so much so that we didn’t bother with setting a destination in Gabby (Our British accented GPS personality) nor did we get Google Maps fired up on the phone. We’ve found that having them both mapping us in tandem is our best option as we bumble along, though there […]

After almost 3 months in Croatia our visas were expiring and it was time to move on. After bidding the fantastic staff at Stobrec au revoir we moved south through a bit of Bosnia and Herzegovina (simple border check) and ended up at a very small campsite just south of Dubrovnik. As we had spent […]

One of the side trips we took while camping in Stobrec was to the ancient Roman ruins of Salona, one of the original settlements that later spilled into the surrounding villages and towns. For most of our adventures little doggo tags along but for our visit to Salona he had to stay and guard the […]

As mentioned in our previous post, we were now finally full of LPG and were ready to head to Camping Stobrec, just south of Split. There were a few other camps open, one in Starigrad and a secure parking area in Zadar but we decided to just head to Split and stay put for a […]

RV Roadtrip Croatia – Šimuni Camping Village and Pag Island

After our trip to Krka National Park it was time to backtrack to Pag island and the massive Šimuni Camping Village. According to our research there were a couple of options for year round camping on Pag island but Šimuni seemed like it was probably going to be the nicest. Actually, we had first thought […]

RV Roadtrip Croatia – Krka National Park

Our next destination on the RV roadtrip in Croatia was Pag island to check out some of the camping options there. Or at least that’s what we thought when we pulled out of Camping Bor.  As it turned out, there had been a good storm the night before and that coupled with high winds had […]

RV Roadtrip Croatia – Krk Island

After the lovely camping at Porto Sole we decided to move south and investigate some of the other camping options.  Our first destination was Krk island which took us off of the Istrian peninsula and onto the mainland of Croatia for just a short bit. Again, the toll roads were really good and we even […]
