When going away in a motorhome or campervan for the first time it’s always worth your time to do some research beforehand.
Where do you intend to go? What campsites will you stay at? Are you going to book in advance or arrive on the off chance? What route are you going to take?
But where do you go to get the more practical advice?
There are a number of options available to you. The similarly named, Camping and Caravanning Club, and the Caravan and Motorhome Club are the big ones. They offer a wealth of information, but the main focus is still their campsites, and the where’s rather than the how’s.
We think the best people to ask are the ones who do this full-time. The ones who are living their dream, who have given up on the rat race, bought themselves a motorhome/campervan and spend their time documenting their adventures in the form of a travel blog.
There are a whole host of motorhome/campervan bloggers out there to choose from. We’ve compiled a list of our favourites:
First up is our friend, Kat, or as you may already know her by, The Wandering Bird.
Kat quit her job in 2018 to travel the world. Since then she has explored 19 countries and travelled over 30,000 miles in her motorhome (which she bought 2nd hand from us!).
In that time she has also gone on to become an award winning blogger, and her website is packed full of travel tips, ideas, inspiration, and incredible photos.
A great resource whether you’re new to world of vehicular leisure or a seasoned pro.
