As we look back at 2017 and our highlights – Eastern Europe is going to always stand out to us. Whilst we love Western Europe, our curious souls sought more cultural education and east was where our hearts took us.
Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and all too briefly, Hungary. What delights these countries were with history, nature, cultural diversity and a world that has been teetering on the edge of communism into the European Union. What a fabulous six months we had. Collectively known as the Balkans, this area of south eastern Europe is a hot bed for history, culture and natural beauty. Whilst language may well separate these countries, there is a legacy that somehow seems to hold them together. A set of values that bind them and an opportunity for some incredible touring in your motorhome. Any one of these countries can of course stand alone in their own individuality, although as a collective tour, it will enrich your life beyond words.
So few people venture east, keeping to the safety of Spain and Portugal, although with this interactive map, we hope it will give you some food for thought for your adventures.
To bring our experiences to life, we have produced an interactive map that shows not only all the camping spots we stayed at during our tour, some of the highlights too. Combining our videos, Drone footage and blogs, you have one resource all in one place.
So if Eastern Europe is calling you for 2018 – then this interactive map complete with pictures and co-ordinates is all you need to ignite your plans. We hope that it gives you some seriously entertaining travel inspiration.

Please bear in mind that we started from Italy, headed over to Greece, then had a short trip to Crete and then headed north through Bulgaria and Romania before having a short period in Hungary.
