Our first impressions of Sweden are exactly what we had hoped… if Norway is the UK’s equivalent to the Lake District…. then Sweden is most certainly the UK’s East Anglia…. Find out more about what we found at Karlstad in the heart of Sweden.

So imagine holidays spent jumping into the huge natural lake for yet another splash around with the kids or evenings enjoying the numerous activities/shows on offer for all ages within the campsite.  All this in an idyllic setting amongst pine trees and sand….. the perfect recipe for some rest and relaxation!!

Having driven through the fjords of Norway, we’ve now entered Sweden… with it’s dry flat fields that stretch endlessly into wide forests that appear to disappear over the horizon before they end… Past enormous forests full of wonderfully shades of greens/browns and wonderful scents too. Add to that the idyllic lakes that literally appear at every turn – full of lilly pads, dark but clear waters… and those wonderful bulrushes… and you have a truly wonderful first impression of Sweden.

For those who have loved following our adventures across Norway (extreme or otherwise)…. then this blog post may not be for you today… but for those following our families journey…. this was a true family day!!! A chance to remember exactly why we do this! Motorhoming at it’s very best… embracing the outdoor life and enjoying spending time together!!


Every campsite should have Something special

If there’s something we’ve really learnt along the way. It’s that nothing else really matters… but family! Happiness is found outdoors and having fun as family… be that a BBQ, paddle in a pedalo boat or simply spending time watching your kids playing in nature’s playground…. Life really doesn’t get better… it may get more exciting, but it doesn’t get any better!
