The famous Rhine falls in Switzerland, not far from the German border between Schaffhausen and Zurich, is the most powerful waterfall in Europe and a majeur tourist attraction in Switzerland. In summer, the water flows at a rate of 600,000 litres per second and boats take you right on the bottom of this amazing natural site which was formed in the last ice age, more than 15,000 years ago.
The first trip after buying our camper van was going to Sweden, one of the best camper van destinations in Europe where wild camping is not a problem. This is the itinerary of our three weeks road trip in this Northern European country with its more than 100.000 lakes.
When thinking about Sweden, most people probably think of the lakes with its red cabins, wide landscapes and... well... reindeers. While we did see lots of lakes and even more red cabins on our road trip in southern Sweden, we somehow missed the northern wilderness and its special fauna. This is why, we decided to go North and experience another Sweden, a much more lonely Sweden with unpaved roads, an uninhabited landscape as far as the eye can see and, of course, reindeers, these beautiful animals from the North.
Brittany, or Bretagne as the French call it, is the most Western Region of France. During 5 days we visited the Finistère part of the Region which, in the local language Breton, translates into "End of the World".

If you want to discover this beautiful spot at the end of the word, the best way to visit the famous Pointe du Raz is by hiking.
This was our first camper van experience. We had decided quite last notice to take a week off during summer and rent a camper van to go to Slovenia. We had not planned the full itinerary before leaving but this is the result of our 10 days trip to Slovenia:
We do love to travel in a camper van and I must say that Denmark was a perfect destination for that. In only a bit more than one week we were able to discover a big part of the country. This is our itinerary:
After our last year's camper van experience in Slovenia, we just had to have another camper van travel. This time, we chose the low season and a much camper van friendlier destination. So instead of going South, we headed North, to Denmark. This is the full story.
If you love nature, an excursion to Mandø island, a small island of 8 km2 with only 40 inhabitants in the middle of the Wadden sea, is a must-do in Denmark. The small access road which gets flooded twice per day makes this day trip an unforgettable experience.
With no major experience in camping, we suddenly got this idea of travelling in a camper van to enjoy the freedom of stopping whenever and wherever. We therefore decided to just give it a try by renting a campervan for one week in August 2018. Our main destination: Slovenia.
