Road Trip Travel Guide
Start here for all of our road trip information which includes tips, itineraries and guides.
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.

What is a Road Trip?
The definition of a 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 because a road trip can be taken by 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, make travel even more enjoyable.
We love how taking a road trip offers us freedom, choice and flexibility.

Motorhome Road Trip Tips
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 toolbox for travelling as a couple.
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.
