Campervanning - Spain Road Trip

My New Project "Transit camper" 
Crew cab with factory fitted windows.

The Plan*:
The project is underway, with juggling work and converting my new van, for Road Trip "Spain" 2016. Going to keep it simple; the van has a workshop in the rear with storage for 2 bikes, generator, etc..... The living area will have buck beds, cooking area, table & chair.  

*The plan did not happen, also the beard got shaved off! I got as far as north of Bordeaux, returned to England and flew to Colombia. But I am sure I will get there again soon.........

By campervanning you can travel Europe with ease and is the best way to do it, as it gives you more freedom. You can prepare and cook food, just think of all those coffees. Its becomes more cost effective and you can travel for longer. You can stop at beautiful locations, take in the tiny, out-of-the-way villages and enjoy the life!

Spain has more than beaches, it has history on every street corner and spectacular scenery.

  1. If geography classes never used to excite you, Guatemala will change all that. Sitting on the boundary between two tectonic plates, the country is host to over 30 volcanoes of all shapes, sizes and states of activity. If you ever wanted to see what the inside of our planet is like and what happens when it decides to make an appearance, Guatemala is for you. From the thrill seeking adrenaline junkies that want to stand next to flowing lava to those wanting to see the lush tree-covered volcanic slopes rising above the gorgeous Lake Atitlan, there's something for everyone.
