Sep 22, 2014 - Heading south again into the Netherlands

We headed south again this time travelling just under 250 miles a long day for us. We usually try to keep our jumps to no more than 200 miles but we needed to get south to the campground at Nunspeet we liked. The last 50 miles seemed to go on forever but we arrived safely and quickly set up. We were both feeling very tired. Not as young as we were at the start of our adventures 10 years ago! A few days of R&R required.

Again we welcomed by the Dutch owners. This area of...

We decided to walk a couple of the 4 km round trails. Our trails took us through shady glades of beech trees and through heath land. The walking...

May 4, 2013 - Move to Nunspeet

After a day of domestics we packed closed up the coach and made a move to Nunspeet further east and north in the Netherlands. The move went well and we found the campervan park without any problem. The owners were very welcoming despite not speaking very much English. We were quickly in our space and set up with a view over farmland. The campervan park or in German stellplatz only takes motorhomes and very rarely take reservations. This one had 30 places but we discovered later on in the week could take more if necessary. Here unusually...
