My sister in law’s birthday was a few days ago, so my wife invited her to a campervan tour to the baltic sea. Amazingly, they even had some decent weather and enjoyed some quiet days in the wild coastal nature.
Among else, they stayed at a lovely coastal campsite, located in a small village named “Brazil“, right next to the village of “California” – no joke!
An image of the “Palmenhaus” (Botanical Garden) in Vienna that I took years ago. It’s a beautiful destination for a trip!
Hint #1: RV or Caravan?
A very basic decision… I’ve tried both and I, personally, came to the following conclusions: If you want to explore the surroundings of your campsite or destination extensively, a caravan should be the vehicle of your choice. You can just leave it on the campground and drive around with your car freely.
On the other hand, if you’re more of the “round trip guy” (as I am) an RV is clearly the better decision. It’s easier and faster to set up and dismount, it’s normally more spacious and often better equipped. But you have to take it with you every time you need a ride. Whereas, as a ride it’s far simpler to move and to handle than a car and trailer. Just take a bike with you for short distances.
I don’t know where this video is from, but it’s very interesting, especially for campers.
This is what I always have packed in a convenient pouch in case “I just want to get out of this shit”. Just grab this, money, a jacket and a toothbrush and get the hell out of here.
Since I fucked up the last post on RV Tank Cleaning, I’ll try to correct that here and now. After 1 1/2 years of not using the RV I had to clean and disinfect the water tanks thoroughly and, while thinking I bought the product I used before, I actually got a different one. This was a little bit more complicated than the one used before, so I I’ll describe here how it worked:
I’m planning to finally go on another road trip again this summer – I need this so fu***ing badly. So, in the progress of planning, preparing and organizing everything, I’ll try to post here what I do. Perhaps some of you can relate or even take the one or the other hint. This will be updated irregularly.
