A week long trip – UK To Abenteuer & Allrad, Bad Kissingen 2019

 

This will be our third year making the jaunt over to Germany to Bad Kissingen where the world famous Overland Show is held every year. For Jed and Dan it is one of the highlights of the year, not only because the show itself is amazing but it is the camping area that is always the best part of the trip. It is a perfect opportunity to have people swing by to say Hi and have beers with friends we have arranged to meet in the camping area. This year we took a whole week off work for some down time and to hang out with both new friends and old ones.

We really want to make you feel you are with us in our camping area this year, so grab a cold beverage, hit the full screen option, tune in and kick back while you come and join us in this latest CVC video.

CVC HQ London to SYNCROFEST California – A VW Vanagon/T3/T25/Minivan road trip

 

CampervanCulture.com has been involved in some light sponsorship over the past few years with Syncrofest in California. This year we thought it would be fun for Jed to go out there to meet the people who follow what we do here and tie that in with hooking up with the main USA vendors that also contribute to the event that we also deal with loads.

There was some bonus time to be had either side of the event with visits to national parks before the event and a drive along Big Sur after the event in the rental airport minivan. The minivan proved to be a good cheap way of seeing this part of the world and was to become Jed’s home for the week! Solid friendships both old and new were cemented and formed over the duration of this amazing event at what has to be the most friendly VW van meet in the world. Why not check out what all the buzz is about and join us as we take you over to the Hollister hills in California and to Syncrofest 2019.

Come ride with us on this van trip with a difference,

 

Vanlife Explorers Visit Cappadocia Turkey – Episode 3

When the invitation arrived for me to join Canadian globe trotters Live.Travel.Play for a short while when on their Turkish section of their world tour, I jumped at the opportunity.
Back in part 1 & 2 we experienced skies full of hot air Ballons and some amazing cave exploring in the side of mountains at The Red Valley Cappadocia. In part 2 there was still no shortage of exploring but that time for us it was all about tracking down the best food and drink as well as putting Lucky, the Vanagon through it’s paces by taking it off road once more.

In part 3 we explore the biggest underground city in the area and have one last explore of an area we found by pure chance. This ended up to be the best yet..

BusFest 2018

Who is going to Busfest 2018? *BIG NEWS*

Before we give you all the lowdown on the show please read the following. We will only be bringing limited stock to the show this year. So if you would like anything delivered to you at BusFest (or the Adventure Overland show) please place an order through the webshop and choose “For Local Pick-up” as the delivery option. Finally just add an order note specifying that you would like to collect at the festival. 

Listen up ya’ll.. CVC will be there, inside The Avon Hall supporting ‘Well Travelled Transporters’. This year for us will be a little different as we will not be setting up shop for trading on the same scale as previous years. The reason for this is that when we are 3 people deep and constantly serving people we don’t get a chance to speak with you. We don’t want you to be kind enough to come and speak with us and us not being able to give you any of our time. You will be able to pre order though and we can bring your gear to the show with free shipping and will have some stuff with us for you to buy and take away on the day. That said we have a lot on offer this year.. We are currently two thirds of the way through our Transylvania trip and this will be the first official reveal of The Managon. You have a chance to ask all about it, get in it, get under it.. Hell you can even get on top of it if you like! You want to build something like it? Just ask.. all the info and knowledge we have put together on this build is yours, just bring a note pad and scribble down the answers. See The CVC 2WD Adventure Camper now it has been fully restored and newly equipped ready for adventure. Meet Canadian Vanlifers Live.Travel.Play and ask them anything about their van and their 3 years travelling around the world. Meet Westfalia Digital Nomads the makers of the famous ‘Vanlifers’ movie ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRQamLSFTy0 ) these people really do inspire and are a must see. Meet Tom Dibb talented musician and all round nice guy who drove his VW T25 camper Pickle from the UK to Australia. He has so many interesting things to say we couldn’t even start to mention them in this post. We might even get treated to a mini gig

😉 Meet ChefCampers.com who have just sold or given away everything they have (including their house!) and are just now starting a new life travelling the world searching out culennary sensations from other cultures as well as adventure in their VW T25 California Syncro. There will be even more people and well travelled VW Transporter vans to meet in the is area but this is just a little heads up of a taste of things to come.
