Roadtrip #2 (England/Scotland) – Overview

Roadtrip #2


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 the start of the adventure with a trip on Scotland’s NC500 before completing the John O’Groats to Lands End route.!

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….
