This summer I had the chance to visit Friesland, a destination that you may not be very familiar with or even heard of. That’s okay, because by the end of this blog you’ll be looking up flights to the Netherlands to visit this magical place! Last year, the Frisian city of Leeuwarden was named the Cultural Capital of Europe as well as Friesland being awarded Lonely Planet’s #3 in Europe. Their fame is far from over, as the Frisian Islands are currently #30 in the New York Times: 52 Places to go in 2019. So will you be going?
Ever considered throwing caution to the wind and just heading out on the road for the trip of a lifetime? An example of this would be Freek and Inge, perhaps not your first thought when you consider #vanlife. They decided to take on a huge challenge, one rarely done before… to travel through South America in their Volkswagen T3! After drooling over their trip through amazing Instagram photos, we decided it was definitely time for an interview.
We couldn’t help but notice Oliver and Sofia’s gorgeous photos across the globe as they explored New Zealand in a campervan, so we made sure to catch up with them once they had returned! They shared their New Zealand road trip with us, including tips for anyone looking to enjoy a similar experience. New Zealand is an absolutely stunning country, and the best way you can explore this vast land is behind the wheel of a motorhome, as that is actually how Goboony began.
We’ve met so many people who’ve found not just a new way to have holidays, but a whole new life with the help of a campervan. But, making the leap isn’t easy. Here, we chat to Rebecca, whose love of camping took her on a journey from tents to a hired camper to creating Campfire Mag, the free online camping and campervanning magazine!
Ever thought about just packing up and running off to live in a motorhome? Well, Ben and Lucy did exactly that, except they weren’t running away, they were running towards an exciting new lifestyle. And they took the time to sit down and tell us all about living in a van! The best destinations, the best advice and how they plan to join the Goboony family soon!
Central Asia is a destination ranking high on the road trip wish list, a tempting and exotic location just within reach through driving. When we saw Karen and Rudy’s photos of their trip there, we knew that this was a story our fellow travel enthusiasts needed to hear. They’ve been together for an impressive 36 years and have made a grand number of journeys in their time together. But they waited until the kids were all grown up to make their next exciting journey… travelling through Central Asia with a Volkswagen bus!
Yes, in recent times myself and my boyfriend have become the proud owners of a real VW T3. After we rented one in what turned out to be the coldest weekend of February, there was no turning back. We wanted a van of our own. We’ve explored a great number of places in the Netherlands already, and a few weeks ago we decided it was time for out first long trip: a road through France! In this blog, you’ll hear all about our adventures and I’ll provide you with all the useful tips I picked up.
