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 […]

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.  […]
