from Mark and Ann
We are South African adventurers who have travelled Europe extensively over the last 12 years.
We have been to 16 countries over 207 days, seen 220 different places, revisited 30 places and have taken 43,215 photos.
And we did this in just 6 trips! I'm not bragging, just highlighting how effective our travel model is.
This website is about inspiring you to do the same. We will show you how we do it, give advice, tips and insights. From planning the trip, to putting it into action, to actually doing it, we want you to benefit from what we have learnt.
If you have any questions or suggestions we would love to hear from you.
So where did all this come from?
Our first trip to Europe was in 2000, a two week backpacking trip by train and bus to 6 cities with a cruise down the Rhine. Parents of friends of ours in Bloemfontein imported a campervan from Germany and we got a chance to sleep in it on a visit. That was the start of our dream to travel Europe by campervan.
Our idea was to see as much as possible, in as short a time as possible, in the most cost effective way possible, as comfortable as possible and high flexibility. All this is important because being from South Africa the exchange rate makes traveling to Europe an expensive endeavour so we needed to maximise everything.
We looked into all the other budget options. We already had experienced the major limitations of backpacking with the time constrains and cost of public transport. A Euro Pass train ticket was ridiculously expensive and car hire came close but was still very restricted. Each had pros and also many cons.
The campervan seemed to tick all the boxes.
