Roadtrip #9 (Eastern Europe)
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 an exciting adventure into Eastern Europe via Germany, Poland, Austria, Hungary before returning via Croatia, Italy and Luxembourg)
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….
