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.

After the struggles with the fuel pipe on leaving Belgrade, it was a relief to be in such a peaceful welcoming spot as Radomir Lukovič’s campsite on the family farm near the tiny village of Radijeviči at the start of … Continue reading
After the prettiness of Ljubljana and the refurbished refinement of old Zagreb, Belgrade is care-worn and world-weary. Dirty, hectic, blisteringly hot, but with the vibe of a great city waiting to emerge and face another day too. Would we have … Continue reading
There is a plain that stretches east from Zagreb to Belgrade (and beyond), we were told. It’s as flat as a pancake. It was true. We rarely choose motorways, but we chose one to cover a chunk of distance eastwards … 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
Back in 1995, the 2cv World Meeting was held in Slovenia, around the Maribor and Ptuj area. This year, Maribor’s the European Capital of Culture. I don’t know which is cause, which is effect, or whether it’s pure coincidence, but … Continue reading

The very northern part of the Croatian coast, the Istrian peninsula, is one of the most heavily touristed parts of the country – quite an achievement, given how solid much of the rest of the coast is! However, as we … Continue reading
Another day another ferry and this time we landed on Krk. Like Rab it’s another of the Kvarner Gulf islands, the biggest one, and a stepping stone to the next island of Cres (pronounced ‘stress’), and thence to the mainland … Continue reading
