    I would like to hear of your personal experiences as you travel throughout the different countries. How you had to adapt to certain customs and what surprised you or disappointed you in each country.

      I have to be very careful in Singapore I believe - No Jaywalking - Do NOT Jaywalk ........

    Sounds like fun. I think I would be most interested in local customs or tips for getting around specific locations. Maybe unexpected differences compared to your home country, or information on traveling around the world.

    Perhaps some specific stories if exciting parts of the trip would be interesting too. Think about what questions people might have if they were setting out to visit some of the same places.

    I am green with envy.
    Stop in for a visit if you get to the San Francisco Bay area.  I would love to meet you.
    Stop in at the Hub Pages office in San Francisco too.

    Anything.  I have never been to Europe, and i would love to view it through your eyes.   I live in the USA, and I have been to Canada, but I would like to see what you think of USA, even if you are American.  It is good to get different people's opinions.

      Don't know my itinerary yet - probably Spain and Portugal first. But I'll keep a check on your travels and keep in touch for a spontaneous meet-up.

    The unusual things you see or encounter, especially the unexpected.  Also the 'off the tourist track' stuff.  Let me know when you're in Britain and if I'm here (often away too!) it would be good to meet you.
    Have fun and have a safe trip!

    1. freecampingaussie profile image63

    I'd love to hear about the food--the best and the worst! I'd also be interested in stories about off-the-beaten-path adventures you have and locals or interesting travelers you meet along the way. And recommendations about where to stay would be great! Have a wonderful trip!

    joanwzposted 8 years ago

    Yes. Look for the unexpected while you're there - the people you never expected to meet but found interesting to talk to; the sightes you never expected to see; the events you never expected to be a part of but were glad you got a chance to take part in. I always find these unexpected things very interesting.

    Driving around Europe in a campervan is great fun. You get to meet people from so many parts of the world in the camping parks and if you like somewhere you can stay longer - or even save fees for a night by sleeping in a lay-by or the gate to a farmer's field. When we went we bought the van in England, sailed on the ferry to France, timing it to arrive in the very early hours so we could get used to driving on the other side of the road. We spent all the six weeks of the summer holidays in Europe and when we got back to England sold the campervan back and only lost a hundred pounds on the transaction! Hope you have a fantastic time. I'm looking forward to reading about it.

      Sounds great ! Good thinking about arriving early for practice on the road lol! Did you buy the campervan private or through a company ?

    2. BlossomSB profile image91
      BlossomSBposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Through a company, but sold it privately.
      I'm envious! Hope you have lots of fun.

    Have a great time and be safe.  Would enjoy hearing about the foods, entertainment and costs involved.  It will be fun to read your adventures.

    I'd like to hear of the little or unknown out of the way places that you find to be special.  Also, it would be fun to hear about interesting people you meet along the way.  I'd also like to hear about the different places you camp along the way and the people and experiences in those places.  I suppose I'm interested in all the less flashy parts, but those are the things life is made of really.  Safe travels.
