Roadtrip #14 (France/Spain)- Overview

Roadtrip #14 (France/Spain)

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, so here’s another chance to catch up on some of the best routes through France/Spain whilst escorting the girl’s grandparents. So a great chance to see which campsites might suit all families!

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! Life’s too short, we needed to ‘live’ not ‘exist’ So we’ve taken up a ‘once in a lifetime’ family opportunity!

So here’s the first steps onto a roadtrip adventure that’s now over 700+ days old and includes visits to over 30+ European Countries….

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. The chance to discover amazing people, places, food and adventures across Europe. All for under £48/day (average in 2017) or £17,000/year.
