Ever wanted to pack your bags, just jump in a motorhome and go off and explore Europe as a family? Well, that’s exactly what we (Catherine, Richard, Lottie & Libby) have done since September 2015.
A normal family just on an extra-ordinary adventure!
Long story short
How did it all start….
We’re just a normal family of 4 (& a dog) but when kayaking the Dordogne in July 2015, a switch just flipped! As we sat paddling and discussing rivers and how meanders formed. Was it possible? Could we invest in our children’s education for a year and see how much we could learn together. So we’ve taken up a ‘once in a lifetime’ family opportunity!
Our families road trip really has become an adventure in every sense of the word. Every day full of surprises as we move our motorhome from one location to another. So where better to follow our adventures than on on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram? We look forward to sharing our journey with you there too
Where have we been
Where have we been?
Picture this. All your belongings safely stowed in the back of your motorhome. Imagine you sitting in the drivers seat, with the kids in the back, ready and raring to go for yet another family adventure in your trusty motorhome. We’ve travelled Europe in our fantastic Adria Family Motorhome seeking out family adventures and learning experiences to share with you. Discovering amazing people, places, food and adventures across Europe.

Lifeinourvan In the Press
We started LifeinourVan in 2015 as a way to share our families experiences of travelling across Europe’s 42 countries on a ‘ed-venture roadtrip. We never realized our travel blog would grow so big and we never realised just how many people shared this urge to travel with their families…
So we re-doubled our efforts and try to share as many tips as we can to both new and existing followers. Now we welcome thousands of visitors to our blog every month and hopefully inspire others to take the plunge – be it a family of weekend campers or those looking to experience a similar roadtrip.
We’ve partnered with hundreds of brands and international and regional tourism boards across Europe (see our Work with Us page for more) and have featured in plenty of motorhoming forums as experts in what we do…. Which is perhaps why Complete France named us as one of their top French travel bloggers for 2017, and our work is regularly featured in national press and magazines including the Daily Mail, Mirror, Prima, At Home, Practical Motorhome & MMM.
But important as all that is, we just love travelling and discovering new places to share with others. So we hope you’ll stick around and check out our highlights from across Europe and maybe even leave a suggestion for new ones we can explore in 2018.
