Camping 101: Awning care

Trento , Trentino-Alto SudTirol July 2017 Rose 29th July: This morning we woke up and had a serious chat about the next few days. We had to be in Munich the night of the 3rd Aug so we could hand in the camper the next morning. This means we seriously have to think about going…

The lakes in Italy, a beautiful restaurant and we end up in the car park.

Italy, Sud Tirol July 2017 So just reminding you how we ended off the previous post..I made a small mistake which lead us to the wrong country. Anyway lets not dwell on that...so its quite late and we need to get to the camp. We chose one next to a lake in Northern Italy. As…

Bordering on the ridiculous… lakes, slaps & waterfalls

Julian Alps,Slovenia July 2017 We are making our way from Kobarid to Kranjska Gora. Through the Julian Alps and up and over the Vršič Pass. First another waterfall or Slap in Slovenian.

Caves, Vines and World War 1 leads to a monthiversary

Slovenia 23 July 2017 We left Ljubljana in the morning with our new plan. We had planned to go to Lake Bled and spend a few days, and also to visit Postojna Caves. But according to our inside information although Postojna is magnificent, it is also a bit like Disney Land. Anton recommended we try…

The Graz is greener…

Graz, Austria July 2017   Wednesday 19th July: We had chosen a spot in the middle of Graz. Apparently you can park overnight with some services and just walk into the city. We had an address and Tom Tom was taking us there. It was not meant to be easy for us that day. First…

Assault on the Senses…

Bad Ischl, Altausee and Beyond....   Tuesday 18th July The plan had been to get to Graz next but on looking at the map we saw there weren't many camp sites close to Graz and thinking we might not want to spend too much time there maybe we would stop off at another lake for…

Grüß Gott…and into Austria we go…

Wolfgangsee, Austria 15th July   Think Knysna, Plett  with large  lakes and Sound of Music scenery. Achingly, almost kitsch, in its beauty. Rose: we made our way to Abersee. It's a little town on the opposite side of the Wolfgangsee from St Wolfgang. A lovely warm lady running a very busy campsite. Right at the…

The “Jewel” in Czech’s Crown, and then “Border Control”…

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic 15th July   Saturday morning we packed up, getting quite good at the routine, off to the Jewel. Have learnt from experience to first plot our route and check where we can park, not all parking areas good for campervans. Up a really steep zig zaggy walkway ( thought my lungs…
