Our Grand Tour Plans

There are 3 big tours that we want to do in the coming years and hopefully we will get the time to do all of them.

  1. Denmark, Sweden (can’t wait to travel over the Oresund Bridge) Norway and Finland, we love dark nights and snow so this will be a winter trip, bbrrrrrrrrrr.
  2. France, Switzerland and Italy
  3. Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Austria

No doubt we will be taking in all the major theme parks along the way such as :

Plopsaland Belgium/Walabi Belgium/Walabi Netherlands, Efteling, Movie Park Germany, Heidi Park, Phantasialand, Liesberg, Tivoli Gardens, Bakken, Europa Park, Gardaland, Park Asterix and of course Disneyland Paris.

Not sure what order these may be in but if anyone has any recommendations or advice, please let us know.



Canterbury June 2016

We arrived on Sunday afternoon at the Camping & Caravan Club Site in Canterbury after a detour via Dover when we disembarked from the Channel Tunnel.  Not sure why, but it doesn’t quite feel the same if you are in the area and don’t see the White Cliffs of Dover!

On arrival, we were shown to our pitch on Park Lane and after a freshen-up, we settled in for the night enjoying the Great British ‘Summer’ while it lasted and the rest of Father’s Day!

This is a very nice well-kept site with a nature trail and nature which gets up close and personal.

Next morning was wet and miserable – great for shopping in the City!

We got very wet (again) but at least we had fish and chips to look forward to when we got back, bought from the chip shop in the city.

We watched Dad’s Army (the remake) which I had for Father’s Day, before turning in for the night and already thinking about out next adventure.
