Our travel trailer trip through Europe

It would be our first travel trailer trip. Actually, the third trip for me and Janis together, the second trip with kids (actually the first was 4 years ago when Nelle was only 9 months old and she was the one and only kid: we visited our friends in Germany!). AND this is our first trip as a family with more than one child! The first trip all 5 together.
First. With kids. All together.

So, we don’t know what does it mean to travel with kids. We will find out this summer! I hope to blog while we travel.

Our plan isactually, we don’t have a plan! Our only plan is to install solar panels and start our trip until May!!! Since we don’t know how to travel with kids… aaaand how to travel with travel trailer…neather. We gladly listen to those who have any experience.  If you have any suggestions let us know by comment below! We are ready to learn, to be together, to see Europe, to visit friends in France and Germany, to see a sunset in Spain and eat ice cream in Pisa Italy 🙂

Also, Nelle is in that age (5 years old in May) when she should recognize some letters and possibly write her name. And we need more time together to work on that! Also, we can learn a little bit about every country while we travel.. and so on! We already have few books and I’ll post about that later.

I believe it will be a fun time together!

Any suggestions?! We would love to hear – comment below!

  1. You have a great plan…”Our plan is… actually, we don’t have a plan!… That is a great plan. We learned that a good place for us was figure out our destination. Then it was map the route based on driving increments and campground availability and then go. In hindsight we should have factored in longer stays along the way. There is no perfect way so just get out there and have fun. We can’t wait to hear the stories and see the pictures.

      1. My parents took my siblings and me on a trip through the eastern United States when I was maybe 6. They slept in our van and we slept outside in a tent. My mother was horrified to wake up early in the morning to find a raccoon in our tent! We still laugh about it. Have a great time:)

          1. Oh dear, this is embarrassing- In a cowboy-themed campground in Ohio, my siblings and I “held up” the “stagecoach”! The stagecoach was a horse and cart made to look like an American western wagon- it had a regular route through the campground in the evening. My siblings and I waited for it in the trees, then jumped out of the woods with our hands in “gun” position. I wonder where my parents were at this point!
            We also went to Washington DC, but didn’t go in any of the buildings. I remember the white house looking really small.
            I hope your kids are better behaved then we were! (this was 1971)
