Other Motorhome Travel Blogs

Europe By Camper: Another young couple, Adam and Sophie took a year travelling around Europe in a motorhome in a similar way to we are, and now run a motorhome related business, Motorhome WiFi.  They have lots of useful articles and resources on their site including some GPS POI databases.

OurTour: Julie and Jason left their careers and spent a couple of years travelling Europe, which expanded from their original plan of one year. They are still active with their blog today, having worked hard since returning to the UK to get themselves into a position where they don't need to work so they can spend more time travelling.  Their daily blog posts are very detailed and well written.

Postcards From The Road:  We met Ellie and Matt on the road whilst staying at the same Aire in Spain.  They're on a similar journey to us, taking a year out of their lives to travel Europe, including a trip to Ireland.

The Grey Gappers: David and Karen have taken a year out of work to tour Spain, focussing on sampling the local cuisine and posting about motorhome life from the perspective of first timers.

The World is our Lobster: We discovered Catherine and Chris at the Harrogate Motorhome Show, where they had a stand.  After selling up in the UK they travelled for three years covering 66,000 miles in the process, visiting all 47 countries in Europe during that time.  Chris continued to work a couple of days a week while travelling via satellite internet to help fund it.  It was speaking to them that got us seriously thinking about setting up a blog of our own.

Motorhome Stopover Points

The key websites we use for finding places to stay mainly for free overnight spots and Aires/Stellplatz/Sostas/camper stops:

Camping Car Infos: Don't let the dated website put you off, as this website has a very useful database of Aires and motorhome stopover points.  It's in French, but the information is very useful (and with Google Translate that's a non-issue anyway).  GPS co-ordinates are provided, and the user-submitted comments about the places are also very useful.

Camper Contact: Another website that has stopover locations.  On this Dutch website the language can be selected and it comes with a function to auto-translate user submitted comments, which again are very useful when choosing a location.

Park4Night: Similar to the above sites, but with a lot more in the way of free parking spots.  The app is free, but you can pay to upgrade to an offline version.

Wild Camping: A useful website that we've used to find free spots within the UK.  A forum-based community, with a GPS database available for full members.
