It’s time to start planning those summer Road Trips
Many people enjoy road trips in Europe and we wanted to experience one as well. We plotted and planned our adventure and experienced one of the best road trips ever! We spent 6 weeks on our road trip roaming around Europe and only booked the first couple of legs of our trip in advance. After that, it was free-flowing. Continue reading →
This is the question many of you have asked and I bet many of you wanted to, but didn’t want to invade our privacy. How much did your European Road Trip Cost? Don’t worry, if you have a question for us, just ask! We are sharing our experiences, stories, budgets with all of you.
Not only to keep a record for ourselves, but to show you it can be done. We want to share it all with you for inspiration, to help you prepare, plan or even think differently about your dreams and desires. So ask away, don’t be shy. Okay, so now let’s get into the 6 week road trip cost as we traveled around Europe, the ride of our lives.
We travelled into Austria, didn’t do any research about the area, so I had low expectations. And as you read in Part I and Part II, I am totally sold on Austria. Heidi and I checked out the requirements for retiring here, and it’s similar to Spain from a financial perspective, but being competent in German is a requirement (ouch). Continue reading →
Welcome to Part II of our See Austria series. I’ll assume that you’ve already read Part I. It’s a new day in See, and I decided to go pet some of the locals. Wait…what? Yes, pet the locals.

The owners were feeding them, so I decided to say “Gutentag” to the people, and possibly give the donkeys a scratch.
I’ll admit it…I was sad to see Italy go. We had a lot of fun there, and saw a bunch of really cool stuff. Since I’m being so honest, I’ll also admit that I was a bit ambivalent about Austria. I had done absolutely no research at all about where we were going, and what we were doing, so I guess I’m the one at fault.
So once we had crossed the Italy/Austria border, we all needed to stretch our legs, and do the Bio Break thing. Immediately, Austria sucked me in. As Lars and I were walking into our first Austrian tourist shop, I saw something that made me think that Austria was going to be awesome:
We did it! We took a 6 Week European Road Trip and had a blast. We are now home in Almuñécar, Spain and catching up on laundry and some much-needed rest. Now we will have time to actually write about all the cool things we did. I will provide you with a quick summary here and then over the coming weeks we will share some of the highlights of our Summer Road Trip.
