30th June 2023 And the circle is complete. We prebooked the aire at Ypres via their website as it is always busy here. We needed to get Sam's passport and we booked it for 4pm. Everytime we go to get Sam's passport done they notice he is "Spanish". We tell them he is a rescue dog (which he is)...

28th June 2023 Ghent, where we should have started our journey all them weeks ago. The site is in transition. New stellplatz being built and lots of cabins. At the moment though it is uncared for and needing work. Could not have a pitch without electric and the electric points are miles away...

25th June 2023 As Clervaux was a little too quiet we went a bit further toward home to La Roche Ardennes. You may see on the map we had a massive detour. We were due to go one junction on the motorway but we had to divert across onto the other carriageway. We couldnt get off for another 10...

21st June 2023 Longest drive for a while (224 mile) on the longest day and one of the hottest. We had visited many years ago and remembered it as having lots of bars, cafes and restaurants. Campsite gets top reviews and has a nice pool. Angela and Ang and Paul wanted somewhere to chill for a...

19th June 2023 We were well on our way back now. We booked a crossing for the 1st of July so still had a couple of weeks. We decided on Eberbach which means boar creek and there are plenty of boars scattered around the town. Indeed there are lots of sculptures here in a very small space. It's...

Where the "Castle route" and the "Romantic route" meet is Rothenburg. Another walled medieval town that is definitely worth a visit. There is a new stelplatz to the south of the town, (well since we were last there in 2010 anyway), but it was already full when we got there at 1pm. Again we were...

12th June 2023 Camping Insel is on the river to the east of Bamberg and its an easy cycle ride into the town. It is easy if you go the right way. I was in front and went sailing past the bridge we should have crossed. When we got to the end of the cycle path there was a very steep footpath up...

10th June 2023 We left Prague and went down the motorway as we still had time left on our online toll. In years gone by we had done both the "Romantic route" and the "Castle route" in Germany. The castle route runs from Mannheim to Prague with lots of places in-between. Too many for us to...

I had thought of returning to Prague many times since we last visited in 2006. It had become our go to place. The food and beer was cheap it was full of culture and beautiful places to visit. I had first gone in 1999 with a mate from work while Angela visited her relatives in America. We had...

When we came here in 2010, we had drove in for the day and parked opposite the main entrance under the bridge. This was now an aire without services. (https://www.ckrumlov.info/cz/parkovani-karavanu/). A great place to park up if you want a quick visit into the town. 400K (€17) for 24 hrs or 50K...

1st June 2023 We head out of Vienna from the south. I could not bear to drive through Vienna again. At Krems the campsite is small and the pitches are small. We have to take off our bike rack just to fit on. It is nice though and a short walk into Krems. We had a walk into the town to the...

30th May 2023 I'll state now if you are looking for information and pictures of walking around Vienna and the touristy hot spots don't go any further. The plan was to go to Donaupark Campsite Klosterneuburg, outside of Vienna and take the train in. No of us had been to Vienna (Except for Angela...

29th May 2023 We continued north into Slovenia avoiding the tolls. We were heading for Vienna and planning to travel along the Danube into Germany. Ptuj was a convenient stop halfway. A short walk from the town is a large aire with a rundown campsite next door. It is owned by the nearby spa...

After leaving the site at Plitvice we went a few miles further down the road to Rastoke. Whatever you do do not follow your satnav to the parking that turns left before the flyover bridge. We did and had to reverse out. Opposite this entrance on the other side of the main road is a turning that...

Every person we had met that had been to Croatia said that we have to visit the waterfalls at Plitvice. We were currently in Trogir and contemplating going back along the coast to Istria and visiting the places we had missed on the way down. Indeed that was the original plan and then continue to...

On the outskirts of Trogir is a fabulous campsite - Amadria Park. Again a large resort type site with lots of chalets. They have a shuttle service from the airport and we met quite a few english couples that had flown in. It is perfect for visiting not only Trogir but also Split. The camping...

We spent a couple of more nights at Mlini. At first I didn't like the site but it did grow on us. Will and Sue had decided they would start heading home from here. It was the furthest point and they had a few places to go on the way back. After we said goodbye to Sue and Will we set off again...

By now it was the 18th May. Guess what, it was raining again. We bombed it down the motorway even though the coastline is beautiful. When we got to the coast after the motorway it was a good decision as we would have seen nothing. What we did see was flooded fields.There had been floodings...

16th May 2023 We shot down to Split in the rain to a campsite just to the south on the coast. When we arrived a german on a tractor turned up and managed to block the whole site as he just dumped it where nobody could get by. How he drove it here with a little trailer was beyond us but he...

13th May 2023 We set off down the coast road and luckily the sun was shining. The road was full of bikers and motorhomes. We saw a few aire type campsites along this road. Sue and Will only had until the end of the month in Croatia as they had already booked to go out again to Italy in August...
