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…

check out our Top 2016 Highlights here

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 NorwayClimbing 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.

    Cannot thank you enough Rich and Cat! My parents have a camper van which we live getting out and about it. We are just beginning to plan our first trip overseas to France and your website is going to save us HOURS in planning and research time;)
