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 ...

Operation Dynamo, 1940

Musee Dunkerque 1940 - Operation Dynamo
 September 7th & 8th, 2021 We spent the last couple of days in Dunkirk, France. Dunkirk's name was sadly marked in history during World War II. The Dunkirk evacuation, codenamed Operation Dynamo and also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk, or just Dunkirk, was the evacuation of Allied soldiers during World War II from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, in the north of France, ...

Beer, Chocolate, and Waffles, Oh My!

Belgium Beer Sampler 🍺
 September 5th & 6th, 2021 Thanks to everyone who answered our shout out on Facebook on where to go before we have to be in Paris. Bruges (Brugge) Belgium is the destination most of you said we shouldn't miss. I have to say, I think this was my favorite city on this trip, or reading the title of this blog, is it the foodie in me that says it's my favorite? We found a nice camping spo...

Why Not Belgium?

Gaasbeek Castle
 September 3rd, 2021 Since we planned to slow down and enjoy the small country towns, our next stop was in Roosdaal, Belgium. We planned to spend a couple nights in one small town, then travel to the next stop. After a few stops like this, we'd be back in Paris. Our stop in Roosdaal was at the town's sports field. 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...
