Motorhome Blogs by Members

Welcome to 'Motorhoming with NEILMAC', our blog which is our way of recording our motorhoming adventures.


It's 10 years since we bought our first motorhome, a 2002 Swift Bel-Air 730 and started our European travels. 60,000 miles on we changed to a 2006 A Class Carthago and 30.000 miles later we downsized to a 2018 Challenger PVC - we are still loving every trip!

Planning? What planning?

We don’t normally plan much for upcoming travels, only the destination and an idea of the route along the way.

This trip is a little different because we will be touring in a big loop with the start being the same as the finish. That is, we’re not just going from A to B, we’re going from A to A! - With loads of places in between…

There is no real time pressure on this trip either other than a couple of commitments in December, although still in the motorhome and at the tail end of this trip. So that’s a good 3 months to wander about.

So we set off mid September(ish) from south of Valencia for the rest of the year…

Caromac has the right idea, when I said I was going to sort out some potential stopovers she asked why? “We only need the first one, after that we’ll see what we find”. Okay then, but the map gives an idea as to where we’ll be looking!

Although the basic map shows about 2500 kms distance we’ll do rather more as we seek out more stopovers to log/photograph/video and hopefully we’ll spend some time at the ones we fancy.

Other than being packed and loaded the van is ready for the off. We hope to have most angles covered regarding internet access while we’re away so we can keep in touch with folks, update our blog from time to time and generally take care of the Club Motorhome website - response times to queries may be a day or two instead of an hour or two!

So, with our route and stopovers ‘not' planned (well very vaguely anyway) we’re getting pretty excited about setting off.

Sounds like an amazing trip. Sadly we are in the final week of our 2 month trip and making our way north through France.

Apart from the return date and Romantic Road in Germany nothing was planned. Even the Italian F1 GP was a last min booking.
