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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
