ETD and getting sorted!

Estimated time of departure:

We are aiming to catch the ferry from Dover to Dunkirk on Tuesday 29th May and will probably drive down to London the day before, catching the 10:00am ferry over to France.  We will then make our way up to Zeeland in The Netherlands to visit with Edzers cousin and family.  Its getting so close now and we are chomping at the bit to get going.

We have had fun going to car boot sales and markets gathering things we need to stock 'KARL' (which is what we have named our motorhome), things like plates, pans, toaster, BBQ, etc...

We are also almost finished working out a basic route to follow from The Netherlands down to Portugal where we will make our way to the "Boom Festival" at the end of July.  More on that in the next post.

Cheers for reading!

One week to go!

Mum and Papa (Susan and Edzer) arrive in the UK exactly one week from today, then the fun begins.  We hope to find and purchase a motorhome within the first week and then take another week to ensure our basic plans and supplies are on board.  Hoping to be on the road before the end of May!  Cant wait to start blogging about our actual journey!

Motorhome WiFi

I have been following Adam and Sophies blog and also reviewing their website to gather information for our up coming trip around Europe, there is so much valuable information and tips on things you just would not generally think about (especially being new to this type of travel).  I found both their "Europe by Camper" site as well as their new site on " Motorhome WiFi" extremely helpful so I wanted to share them both:
