Welcome to Our Bumble, a simple blog following our travels in a motorhome around Europe. We have been travelling since April 2014 but our site is still just getting started. We feature information not in the guide books, Country Guides, GPS positions, Tips, Money Matters, wild camping spots, travelling with Pets and other travel related info on pretty much everything regarding travelling in a motorhome.
We also publish all our costs, so you can see how much it actually costs to live your dream.
This years plan, well we left England & headed north into Norway, further north into the Arctic Circle & kept going until we hit the most northerly point in all Europe. Then south, travelling through Eastern Europe and then even further south to Greece.
A couple of statistics.
We set off on 11 April 14 and bar a couple of months back in the UK to change motorhomes we are still traveling and enjoying the adventure all the way. As at July 2016, we have covered a total of 33,432 kilometres or 20,774 miles over 606 days. Travelling an average of 55 km per day with the longest journey being 780 km. We have travelled to and visited 20 countries and consumed 4,346 litres of diesel from 88 fuel stations with an average of 22 mpg. We’ve filled our LPG bottles 55 times and used 1,139 litres of gas to heat our home, run the fridge and freezer, hot water, oven, grill, hob and last but not least our BBQ at an average cost of €0.94 per day. We have paid 40 tolls, tunnels and mountain passes, 17 ferries and 11 flights. We’ve had 1 break in, 1 bump, 2 reversing eeks and 1 oops when the garage door flew off at 2,425 m above sea level. Overnight, we have stayed on 91 campsites or aires but we have grown to love wild camping and spent 515 nights where ever the road takes us. 305 supermarket sweeps and 45 evenings of fine dining.A total of 354 days with nothing but sunshine, 122 overcast days, 67 mixed, 3 thunder storms and 61 days of rain.
