Motorhome Blog on - Time to Get to Work! | Kayler-Popper

 For many (maybe most) people, travelling in their motorhome is a vacation from their “real lives”- ie.. their jobs, busy social calendars and the general daily grind that many long to escape for at least a period of time. They may take off for a weekend here or there, a week or two in the […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - A Vacation from our Vacation??

 The month of May brought a change of pace! We were lucky enough to have family and friends visit us in the Algarve (southern Portugal) and I even got to meet up with my mom in Ireland for a cousin’s wedding! As we approached this impending change (airbnbs rather than Beni life), Ash and I […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - The dog days of motorhome life!

The only “off-limit” places in Beni are […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me!

 The other day, while on a video chat with my mom, she asked how things were going and I answered “Well every day there are several ‘You’ve got to be kidding me!’ moments.” She followed up with “Good or bad?” “BOTH!” I responded, and we had a good chuckle. And it’s SO true. You’ve Got […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - The Plan is No Plan!

 The other day, while on a “randonée” (I like throwing in random French words – this one means “hike”), Ash and I were discussing the beauty of our aimless wanderings and what they provide; exercise for us and the dogs, spectacular views of the natural surroundings, and the possibility of, well, ANYTHING! One of our […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - Making your camping-car your home

 Camping-car or motorhome (no one uses the term RV in Europe!) adventures, are, of course, different for everyone. And making a camping-car “your home” means different things to different people. For us, we knew we’d be living in the motorhome full-time, with 2 large dogs, for a full year or two! So, yes, this REALLY […] continue reading... 

Motorhome Blog on - European adventure – We made it!

Motorhome Blog on - Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees

 Last week I spent a few days away from the beaches of South West France and headed up into the Pyrenees. All easy driving and motorway until Lourdes and then the journey turned in towards the mountains and the scenery suddenly changed to steep green hills and cascading waterfalls. Useful tip – make sure you […] continue reading...
