We have just come back from holiday and it was one of the best ever! There was no internet and no TV and lots of books and adventures. It is such a treat to get out of the big city and out into nature and have some time to roam…
I will share our adventures in the next few days but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of our trip of one of the things we did: we rented a VW combi from the ’70s for a week! We named it Orangina and it was simply so much fun. The camper had a bed in the roof you could open so the girls slept upstairs, I slept downstairs and we were free to roam and park up for the night where we wanted. The freedom was incredible! We mostly spent our time in the Dordogne, which is the perfect place for this type of holiday. The camper does not go very fast, so it is worth being in an area where there are a lot of things close to each other. It is such a cool feeling driving around in such an old car, you get used to the slow rhythm pretty quickly and other drivers wave and honk their horns!
I rented the van from a company called WeDubYou and it came totally stocked with everything we could have needed and I absolutely recommend them!
PS Important tip, if you ever want to go on a roadtrip in a VW combi, bring as little as you can, a pair of shorts and a couple of T-shirts for everyone is more than enough!
