At first we had planned to take a boat from Lazise to Sirmione but as I’d been feeling unwell, we thought the car would offer us more flexibility. We didn’t even make it very close to the centre when we were redirected by traffic police. Soon, we realised […]

Today we stayed at the Campground, Camping Lido. The girls love the pool. I read a book. Really, really hot. Must hit 40 in the daytime in the tent. We have a small fan but it doesn’t do much. Looked into some day trips (though didn’t end up […]
Parco delle Cascate We took a trip to Molina, a medieval village, and a lovely walk to the waterfalls. Especially on a hot day, it was a great way to spend a few hours. It was about a 45 minute drive, much of the last part was very […]

After day 1 mostly travelling from Den Haag, we booked two nights in Reutlingen, Germany, so that we had a day to explore. For breakfast, just a few minutes from our apartment, we discovered bread heaven! I’m not a big bread eater but this stuff is amazing! We […]
We’ve lived (back) in the Netherlands for 6 years now, and my husband has been dreaming of a European driving holiday. For various reasons, it’s not happened yet, but today, we are heading to a “camping” in Italy. It’s a very popular Dutch thing to do in the […]
