Hello all,

New to the site so hope this is posted in the right place :)

My partner & I are planning a trip round Europe from the UK around April/may time.

We plan on buying a medium wheel base van and building a bed as well as a job/sink unit.

He plans on doing freelance web design so we're planning on looking to get internet in the van, any suggestions would be lovely!
I'm keen to try any kind of work so again if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them :)

I'm after some suggestions for campsites or other places to stay off the radar to stay, somewhere we can feel safe!

Also if anyone has any ideas regarding work, good places to go, toilet stop suggestions! Anything would be gratefully appreciated! :)

Hi!

I'm a bit late in finding your post but hopefully you'll still see this before your trip!

I'm also in the middle of planning a trip around Europe in our van! We're off in May! Here are some sites that I have been recommended that might be of some use to you. I'm not sure where you're planning on visiting in Europe but might be worth checking these out.

http://www.campingtaesch.ch/home_443.html (I have heard this is in a lovely setting in Switzerland, a bit basic but the views make up for it)

http://www.tvinde.no (Campsite in Norway next to a waterfall, if you can cope with the noise then this is supposed to be wonderful)

Hope this is some help!

Let me know if you need any recommendations for places to visit! I have a huge list!

But note there is a specific definition of what a campervan is and it is not a van with a mattress in the back.
