Campervan road trip with one plan, there is no plan… Part 3

This time in part three we head up and up. The first stop over was on a free Aire in a place called Vars in the French Alps, a great base for some decent walks and hiking trails and a very nice two night stop over was had. Then after a quick uninspired night in Italy it was into Switzerland where the air is sweet, the people friendly and scenery to die for.

As always feel free to comment if you have any questions and part 4 to follow shortly…

Travelling around Europe in a Campervan part 4

This time Slovenia, and WOW!!!! what a place….

We didnt really know what to expect as we did very little research about the place but we do thank Doug and Elvis for giving some top tips on places to visit. You have to love a country who”s national sport isnt football or rugby but rock climbing and hiking, my kind of people. Most people spoke really good english, no litter of graffiti anywhere and an all round awesome place. Before you watch the video I am just going to say NO LOUISE DIDNT STEAL THAT REALLY hehehehehe…. We bought the item in question a few days earlier as we thought we had bought a device for repelling insects, but it turned out we bought a device for mourning the dead…. Wonder why we were getting strange looks in the evening and nobody would talk to us. What the hell am I on about? you will have to watch the video and see….

Part 5 to follow soon.
