What’s this blog, then?
This blog’s about our life on the open road.
Who are we? Adrian and Ellie and a big red campervan.
Where are we? We’re on the road. Somewhere. Or will be, soon.
Where are we going? Ask us tomorrow or the next day.
Where have we been, and what have we done? That’s what this blog’s about.

Another chapter of the trip closes … we have been zigzagging our way around the countries of Former Yugoslavia since April. There’s only one country we didn’t get to and not everyone agrees that it is a country – Kosovo. … Continue reading
South-East of Zagreb, stretching right up to the border with Bosnia, lies an area of wetland following the banks of the River Sava. The Lonjsko Polje (which just means “Field of Lonja” – one of the villages in the area) … Continue reading
We couldn’t leave Croatia without visiting its capital, Zagreb. After leaving Samobor we headed to the only handy campsite, just behind the motorway services south west of the city. Luckily, and contrary to what we’d heard, there were transport links … Continue reading

The crossing back into Croatia was straightforward, without any of the disputed identity problems we had coming back in after Bosnia – and we gently bimbled through a very pleasant landscape of gentle hills and woods. Eventually, we arrived at … Continue reading

Rab’s reputed to be the most beautiful of all the Croatian islands. That’s a tall order to live up to. The eastern shore, facing the mainland and bracing itself against the Bura wind over the Velebit mountains, is almost as … Continue reading
Back in Croatia and time to see one of the country’s major must-see sights – Plitvice National Park. On the way from the border crossing to Plitvice we passed through Slunj, where the Korana and Slunjčica rivers meet and the … Continue reading
