When we left Australia, back in 2017, to travel Europe for a year in a motorhome, we had no idea we would begin an adventure of road tripping around the world, or that we would start a road trip blog. But here we are on this journey with a goal to road trip and explore as many destinations as we can.
What is a Road Trip?
The definition of Road Trip in the Cambridge Dictionary says it is a long trip or holiday taken by car; Merriam Webster states it is an extended trip in a motor vehicle. We prefer the latter definition, as a road trip can be taken in many forms of transport as long as it is by road. The length of a road trip can be anything from a day to years; it all depends on the type of journey.
Whether you are spending a day, weeks, months or even years, the spontaneity and independence road-tripping presents, makes travel even more enjoyable. We love how taking a road trip offers us freedom, choice and flexibility.
We’ve learnt a thing or two about life on the road and this blog is our way of sharing that knowledge and inspiring you to have a road-tripping adventure too.
Whether you are thinking of or planning a road trip in a motorhome, campervan, car, 4×4 bush camper or even a bicycle, you’re sure to find something useful here in our road trip blog to help you plan the perfect road trip. We are constantly adding articles so follow us on Facebook and Instagram for extra pics and do drop us a line if you think we may be able to help you.

We hired a motorhome for 12 months for our Europe road tripping adventure. Back then, we were beginners to motorhomes, so the first few weeks of our road trip involved a sharp learning curve. Although we loved the freedom of choosing where to go on a whim, we realised we also needed a smooth-running system with the right accessories and gadgets for a motorhome, a fair deal of road trip planning, and a road-tripping sense of humour.
Below, you’ll find plenty of European road trip ideas including many of Europe’s best road trips to set out on.
