“Ian and Sue” from the United Kingdom spend a large part of each year traveling in their “beloved” Rapido 741F motorhome.
On Jan. 23 they shoved off from home on their “Europe trip 2008.”
“The plan, though hardly worthy of the name, is to go to the French or perhaps Italian Alps, enjoy the mountain atmosphere and do some leisurely skiing, then down through Italy, perhaps take a look at Sicily, and then get a ferry across to Greece. Greece is a first time for us in the motorhome and will probably involve a major exploration. Thereafter the obvious thing to do is to make our way up through Eastern Europe, though we haven’t decided which countries yet – we’ll do a little homework nearer the time,” writes the couple in their blog.
