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 […]

RV Roadtrip Croatia – The Istrian Peninsula Part Two

Adjusting to a slower travel pace took a bit of getting used to and after sitting in Polidor for a week we were ready to move on and see some new sites in Croatia. We were planning on three months in Croatia to reset our visa and had done some research into the off season […]

RV Roadtrip Croatia – The Istrian Peninsula Part One

After our lovely time in Venice we needed to exit the Schengen zone and reset our visa. We fired up the rig and pointed her towards Poreč, the first camping inside of Croatia that was open all season. Our route took us over the last bit of Italy, across a tiny sliver of Slovenia and […]

RV Roadtrip From Cannes to Venice

After Monaco we were headed into Italy for a couple of days before going into Croatia. We had planned on doing a pretty long day heading from Cannes to just a bit outside of Verona, a little over 450 km and probably 6 or 7 hours of driving, one of our biggest driving days of […]

A Day in Monaco

From our camping at  Camping Les Cigales in Cannes it was a relatively straight forward day trip to Monaco. We did the same bus to the central train station in Cannes and then a longer train ride to the Monaco Ville stop. In all honesty, it was a little confusing trying to figure out the right train. […]

RV Roadtrip From Peniscola to Cannes

Our visit to Peniscola was entirely too short and I was a bit envious of the retirees spending the whole season there. But, time was of the essence and we were still racing the Schengen visa so onward and upward! Setting off, our first stop would be back in France.  We wanted to avoid Barcelona […]

RV Roadtrip From Gibraltar to Peniscola

After Gibraltar we needed to put some miles behind us so rather than taking a winding road up the coast we opted for the toll roads and freeways. I was a little disappointed to not drop into the resort town of Marbella as some of the vlogs I’ve seen from there make it look amazing. […]

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 […]
