Roadtrip #8 (UK Cities) – Overview
Roadtrip #8 (UK cities Tour)
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 a chance to explore the UK with a whistle stop tour of 10 UK cities
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….

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