LifeinourVan Family European Roadtrip Highlights… Find out more here
The best thing about owning a motorhome is the variety of places it allows you to visit on a family road trip, whilst the beautiful thing about learning is that no-one can take it away from you…. So it was always going to be hard to choose our ‘Top 10 European Experiences’. But here goes…
We’ve discovered some amazing opportunities and experiences on our roadtrip around 35+ European Countries …. But always keen to share, we hope your family might find some inspiration from our ‘Top 10 Family Roadtrip Favourites’ and ‘Top 10 European Experiences’ below..
Ever considered what might happen if you just pack your bags and head off to explore Europe as a family? Well, that’s exactly what we (Catherine, Richard, Lottie & Libby) have done since September 2015. Visiting 35+ European countries, travelling over 75,000 kilometres and grabbing over 350 family experiences on the way… So let us help by saving you time and offering some of the highlights from across our journey so you can enjoy creating special memories with your families.
Chose from Family Outdoor Adventures like Bobsleigh in Norway, Climbing into Mt Etna in Sicily or Kayaking the River Dordogne or unique Travel Experiences like Alhambra Palace, Swimming with Sea Lions or Postojna Caves. Or use our interactive Travel Guides from countries like Italy, France, Norway or Spain to help plan your journey…
We hope you find plenty of ideas for your next family holiday or family vacations….
So what started out as a ‘once in a lifetime family experience’ has now developed into a family motorhoming website which was lucky enough to be recognised by ‘Complete France’ as one of their ‘Top 6 Inspiring Travel Blogs ’ and has featured in national UK Newspapers . Wow!
Whilst that’s great and we really appreciate everyone’s support in developing the website, we’re still very much focused on helping our kids find fun and quirky European travel destinations that we can enjoy on a “normal” budget (we try to live for under £50/day or £18,000 for the entire year (all costs included within that)…. and we hope our honest, first hand experiences can help others.
Whether it’s a weekend break, day out or a longer summer holiday or roadtrip
Education on the Road
As an adventurous ‘roadschooling’ family of 4, we love the chance to find new experiences to add to our girl’s education, but also to have fun as a family too… So we’d been going for 6 months before we decided to try and create a few ebooks to share these experiences and tips on where we stayed and hopefully help other families in the same situation. You can find more about our ‘road schooling experiences’ below.
But perhaps our daughter’s favourite days are the times we grab the ‘Go Pro’ or drone camera and head out on our bikes to make a new video… We’ve had some brilliant ones and some days that the camera never made it back to the van (see Eidfjord). But by and large, we’ve loved making these short videos of our travels across Europe. So here’s a few examples below or you can find them all on our Youtube Channel here
We hope we’ve given everyone a flavour for what an amazing experience we’ve had and we hope our first hand experiences can allow you and your families the chance to find the best places to stay and see across Europe. If you haven’t seen what you needed here, then hopefully you’ll find more on our Travel Blog pages here .
Safe Travels everyone!!!!
