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.

L Shape Wind Deflector Review…

Here is a product we got from www.dubflecta.co.uk

This summer Jed and his family were plagued by aggressive wasps on the tour they did of europe. With temperatures logged above 45*c driving around with the windows wound up was to prove a bloody pain in the backside so we have tried these nifty wind deflectors out. This way you can drive around without sucking the nasty wasps in or letting loads of rain in when driving in the rain with the windows down kind of a poor mans air con system. They are a good price and if you are in the UK you can buy them here, or if your from outside the UK do like it says in the Video and email JP mentioning Campervanculture and they will get back to you with a reasonable world wide shipping cost.

Personally I would have been chuffed if they were bought for me for my birthday or at Xmas and at only £30 per set what self respecting camper van owner wouldn’t? They do them for a wide range of other vehicles too as well as acrylic head light protectors, T4 and T5 bumper protectors, rear spoilers….

What is Wild Camping?

While camping in a forest recently I got to thinking about when people say, “We couldn’t do Wild Camping” On that note I put together a short video to explain what Wild Camping means to us as a family.

iPhone dock in your camper, with a twist…

Looking for a good way to mount / charge your iPhone in your Camper, Jake took an ordinary ebay special and adapted it to fit a Westfalia T25 Vanagon.

Jake got his on ebay, similar to these ones:

Syncropendence, an annual Syncro gathering.

It was that time of year again where the UK’s Syncro owners got together up a mountain in Wales for some fun and games. This year had a 2wd presence in the form of a single cab van that was converted into 4wd by amateur mechanics and named it The Horse….
