Camping, Caravanning, and the Alps

Summer camping and summer travels...
  1. Hey Gav, we (mum, dad & 3 boys) are currently two thirds of our way through our own grand European tour! We did Spain, France via the Pyrenees, Dorgogne & the Alps, into Italy. Touched Rome & are currently sat outside our tent in Florence! Yes, we crazily did it all in our Outwell Phoenix 7atc! The car was like a giant Jenga puzzle on every pack down day. But in spite of some tough days, it’s been amazing! Next we head to Como, then the Black Forest in Germany. A few other places to tick off as well before heading back to the UK.
    Enjoy your adventure, love the blog!

    • Wow! That’s an epic trip. 🙂

      We only have the 2 weeks so our tour is limited, but love the idea of doing a few more countries.  How are the kids coping with the travelling? Do you try to keep distances short or do some long journeys with rest days in between?
