Last Summer we agreed that we couldn't really top the USA road trip, neither did we want to. We fancied something a little less intense but still a great adventure to somewhere new. After potentially looking at Croatia, we actually decided on Amsterdam and Paris - lots to see and do and all relatively cheap. The price between driving and flights wasn't much in it, so we decided to drive, and get back to basics with camping :) So we set off at around 10pm to head down to Dover, catch the ferry at gone 12am, reach Calais and then drive 230 miles straight to 'Camping Zeeburg' where we pitched our tent next to the noisiest goats they had as pets at the campsite.. Little did we know they were going to be our personal alarm clock for the next week! BUT they did get us out of bed nice and early to make the most of our time in Amsterdam :D

When it comes to travel destinations, both myself and Kate have been to quite a few over the years; both together and family holidays. Growing up I've learnt a lot about travelling from having caravanning holidays throughout the UK, now this may sound like posh camping and not the hard-core stuff, but it does teach you that you can go away anywhere and to enjoy the place you are at. For me this is where it all started, having also been on many driving holidays from home (England) to Europe it gave me a huge insight to just jumping in the car and seeing where you end up. - What better way to explore than over land rather than by plane.. you see so much more behind the scenic views this way! Rome and Lake Garda in Italy is definitely one of my favourite travel destinations with my family, that and visiting America the first time and to also see my sister getting married! There is so much to see and experience in the world, that I personally cannot stand the type of holiday where you sit by a pool all day getting a tan in a fancy country. You can say you've been there, but have you really experienced it? Don't get me wrong, I do love relaxation and sometimes during a holiday it is a must to get away from normal day-to-day life; but on the other hand I also enjoy getting stuck in and getting lost in a new place. Let's face it, you're not really lost just because you aren't following a map.
