Eurotrip 2012

This is something that I'm looking forward to so immensely that every time I think about it, I splooge a little.

Just a heads up, Paint is not better than Google maps for route planning.

Six of us plan to make the journey in a motorhome/camper van. Heading north first of all and sweeping the Mediterranean on the way back. It's about 11,000 miles (17,600 km) and we visit 31 countries:

UK, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Poland, Czech, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia & Montenegro, Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Macedonia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Spain.

It would be a lot easier to travel by train but with an InterRail pass you get a lot less freedom. With the camper van and bicycles, we can go pretty much where we like!

I'll probably update the blog in the future with places that we're going to visit; the Plitvice lakes, the Verzasca dam, the Millau viaduct etc.

Ive done a lot of travelling around Europe and been in most countries there. The route that you've planned looks excellent.

That sounds like an awesome journey you have planned there. I would definitely do that if I had the time and the money. Good luck with it man and keep us posted

Check out the harbor in Hamburg. It is awesome.

tforce said...

HuntStuffs said...

Wow. That is uh, quite, the trip! :D

kxxthanxx said...

awesome, how long will it take?

Crooked Letter said...

are you coming to oslo? :)

Tairaka1985 said...

Holy sweet travel length Batman! That is quite a distance you have here.

Going by RV is a good idea. The limitations of the rail would definitely hurt the ability to go wherever, whenever you wanted.

brn said...

wow this is sure going to be really awesome. wish i had the $$ to do the same!

PeaceLoveandSharpies said...

That sounds AMAZING!
My 10th grade English teacher went on a trip to Europe and came back and told us about it. It sounded awesome. :D

Necroticism said...

You can't ask for more, excellent schedule.

Things on my wishlist said...

So jealous... that looks like an awesome route! I wish I could make a trip like that

paulz said...

Awesome sounds great!

Fang said...

Holland? It's called the Netherlands D:|
Give me a call whe n you're there, though. I'll show you the few sights we have~

Admin said...

Please define splooge.

lets go get lost said...

It looks pretty cool.

Couple of suggestions:

Depending on when You'll be in Serbia, You should totally travel to Guca for Guca festival - this insanity has to be seen :).

I can see You're going to Poland's Capital - don't do it. One of my most disappointing trips ever.
I'd suggest going either to Cracow (cool old Jewish district, nice electronic club scene, actual shit to sightsee)
or Wroclaw (also called Breslau cos it's an old German city - lot's of green stuff, city's on 22 islands, a load of bridges, amazing jazz, rave and electro club scene. Also the center is THE center - so no moving from one part of town to another)

same thing with Norway - Oslo is cool and all but It has nothing super special there. Better choice would be Bergen. Especially that You're traveling by car. And this will allow You to see the Fjords, and they are simply amazing.

I like that You're going to Plitvice. I've been there in the '90s as a kid and LOVED it. My friends went there last year - apparently You cannot camp or swim in the lakes anymore and it all got really tourist-infested, but it's still beautiful.

Good luck on Your trip!

Crooked Letter said...

looks like a nice trip! :D

Burn Paradox said...

lol euro trip, looks like an awesome trip, The train would be your best bet for transport, but you don't get the same freedom as you do when you do a road trip :)

MRanthrope said...

fuuuuuuuck. Super jealous of this. As soon as I start generating real income I'm totally taking a trip like this.

BKK said...

When you will be doing this? This could be a long long trip, heh.

OatmealStout said...

Wow! That would be awesome!!

wellpickedbooger said...

Wow, sounds like an awesome road trip! I'd love to take a real road trip, since I live on a relatively small island.

You're welcome to stay at our house 20 minutes outside of Trondheim, we have plenty of space!

Also, northern Sweden is basically just shit loads of trees. All over the place. If you want to see some spectacular landscape, drive from Luleå to Mo i Rana and take the Kystriksveien (http://www.kystriksveien.no/?lng=en) to Trondheim. Not quiet as spectacular as some of the fjords in western Norway or Lofoten, but more accessible by the looks of your route. :)
