All Good Things Must End

Dunkirk, France

September 9th, 2021  We had a couple days to make it to Paris for our flight back to the USA.  We stopped at another French aire, this one in Long, France. This aire was located across the street from the Municipal Campground, which isn't for motorhomes. The aire cost €10.40 ($12.48 US) for the night. Electric was another €2 ($2.40 US) for 12 hours. It was quiet and worked fine for ...

Musee Dunkerque 1940 - Operation Dynamo

There was a free motorhome parking area, that included free electric, water and...

Netherlands? Did We Make Another Wrong Turn?

Campercamping Blij Venneke, Duizel, Netherlands

Next Saturday, we can't return the motorhome until 8:00AM and our flight leaves at 11:30AM. That only gives us 3 hours to return the rental (with inspection), get a taxi to the airport, check-in and go through security. I don't like taking chances with timing when flying. We've booked a hotel ($63 US) near the airport and near the rental return location for the night befor...
