Campervan

The campervan is one's escape to the Gipsies' way of life, the time of a holiday, when you turn your car into your house. We got ours on 19 December (2019): a Volkswagen T6.

For the UK

  • The Park4Night app is really handy to have on your phone so you can find sites while already on the move.
  • Searchforsites is the web-based alternative, set up in the UK and covering Western Europe. It doesn’t have quite as many sites but it does have good functionality and is good for advance planning.
