My cousin and her husband bought a camper van in the UK a few months ago that they revamped into a mobile home for the two of them and their two young daughters. They have been traveling throughout Europe ever since and just basically living 'the dream'. That's not to say that it has been plain sailing and blissful throughout, not all the camp sites have been lovely and Jax has been home schooling the girls while trying to run their lives out of a space not much bigger than a bathroom! But it has been an awesome experience by all accounts and they currently find themselves in yet another piece of Paradise, the Dalmatian coast of Croatia - if this isn't inspiration enough for a European holiday then nothing is!
As I said, the living space is SMALL!
