Spring has sprung, and the days are getting longer and longer. You know what that means: it’s time to start looking forward to those blissful summer days, when the sun shines bright (we hope) and we get to do nothing but dream big and share the company of our loved ones. There’s also that all important family holiday to think about. Instead of booking a cheap flight to a sunny destination in the south of Europe, why not make this year a little bit different and take a family road trip? You’ll have the freedom wherever you please, and we’re fairly certain your kids will love it too.
Road Trip Fun
One of the beauties of a road trip is that they’re so easy to organise, though it does get slightly more complicated when you’re going overseas. You’ll need to be covered for international travel, so take a look at One Sure Insurance and make sure you’re fully covered in case something goes wrong. If you’re inexperienced in driving in a foreign country, then read up on how to drive abroad and make sure there are no unintentionally adrenaline pumping moments. Other than, it’s all about packing the usual car gear and hitting the road for an adventure of a lifetime.
Where Will You Go?
Ah, yes, that’s the question: where will you go? If you’re travelling from England, then the obvious destination is France. That beautiful country has got a lot going for it, though you’ll probably want to skip jam packed Paris and head straight to the south, where the driving is fantastic and the scenery oh so beautiful. You do have freedom to go further of course if time allows, and once you’re down that far you won’t be too far away from the mountains of Switzerland or the laid back vibes of Spain.
Camping Under The Stars
Driving for your holiday isn’t necessarily going to save you money versus a normal trip, but it does allow you the chance to see much more of the continent that you would if you were flying overhead. It also allows you to have different accommodation each night. Indeed, pack your camping gear into the vehicle and you can spend every night under a blanket of a million stars with the people you love. Throw in the guitar and it’ll be music around the campfire, and does life get any better than that?!
Out of the Comfort Zone
Ultimately, a camping trip overseas is definitely one of the more interesting ways to spend your summer holiday. It’ll be beneficial for you and your children, and will bring you closer together in the process. Of course, the kids might get slightly bored if you’re just getting all wistful about the beauty of nature, so make sure you add a few fun side trips during the journey too. There’s plenty of theme parks around that’ll get the energy jolt they need to make it a holiday they’ll never forget - and you might just find you have fun there, too.
