A much more expensive adventure.. More spent on campsites than on any other trip and finding Aire de camping sites payable as we have been travelling in season .. €190 for four nights in a hostel boat park on Lake Garda .. with poor leccy and WiFi ..In retrospect and knowing the area now we would have parked up in the derelict Aire and winged the loo dumping .. I still think we could have got away with using the hostel for our washing but hey ho it’s only Euros ..

We normally run on €45 per day but have found diesel a lot more expensive as well..with the cheapest in Andorra at€1.066 and the most €1.48 in France

Best bits!

For the third time in the last five years it has to be Venice

Best beach!

St Marc sur Mer

Best sleepy spot !


Best food!

In Hetty curtesy of The Cook and Lidl’s own sausage stuffed cannelloni lasagne

Most interesting journey!

Up the pass in Andorra

Worst bit!

The disappointment of not getting to bathe in the hot springs at Saturna and the awful roads there after !

So that’s it for this adventure ..

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.


  1. Looks like an epic trip, impressed with the cost breakdown!! I have no idea how much we spend, it would be a great excercise to work it out! I don’t think we run to £45 a day but fuel in these old Hymers certainly is a big chunk!!!
