10 Reasons to Travel Solo

Solo Travel

Wohooo – today is a special day! June 14th 2018: I am proudly celebrating 100 days on the road. Time to review what travelling by myself taught me so far.

Travelling with your family, friends or people you know well or love is an amazing experience. You create moments that you will cherish for the rest of your life. But still, there is something very special in the experience of travelling by yourself.

Cooking & Food

My Product Selection

Cooking in a motorhome can be challenging. Water supply, the stove and the overall available space differ a lot from what you might be used from home.

After being on the road full time for some months now, there are some items I don’t want to miss out on anymore: The perfect oven, grill, water container and coffee maker for living in a motorhome.

Italy – my favorite campsites

Route

After a wonderful time in Greece, Fiete and I took the ferry from Igoumenitsa to Bari in Italy. What an adventure! I was super nervous to get the motorhome on to the ferry, as I have heard nightmare stories about it from other campers. Ferries leaving hours late, unfriendly staff guiding vehicles in a rush, cramped spaces and excellent driving and parking skills needed.

For no reason! It was all easy as you can tell from my cheesy video on our  new YouTube channel:

Greece – My Top 5 Highlights

Route

Greece – I love you! You have been wonderful to Fiete and me.  We will come back – promised!

Fiete and I have been spending almost two months in Greece from March through April 2018. We started coming from Tirana in Albania over to Thessaloniki, Macedonia and Chalkidiki. From there we looped back to Thessaloniki to go further South along the coast visiting the Pélion and Athens. From there we took the route through Peleponnese over to Delphi and Meteora until we finished off in Igoumenitsa to take the ferry to Bari in Italy.

Greece – Meteora

Rocks, Monestaries & Monks

When you think of Greece the first thing that comes to mind are the beautiful turquoise beaches, fishing boats and tzatziki.

But there is a lot more to this fragmented country. In the center of its mountainous region, near the Pindus valley, lays a small area with fascinating and oddly-shaped rock formations and monestaries built in and on top of cliffs. Meteora.

Greece – Delphi

Apollo, Zeus and the center of the Earth

Delphi was one of my top ancient attractions in Greece – very unique and majestic. A two hours drive from Athens and right around the corner of Meteora.

It is located between the rugged peak of Mount Parnassus and a spectacular valley of cypress and olive trees and is regarded by ancient Greeks as the most sacred site in the world. So of course I had to go and visit.

This is also the place where I decided that it’s time for a new start, which you can read all about in my other blog post. So yes, this place is very special.

Route

Today is our last day in Greece because we are taking the ferry from Igoumenitsa to Bari in Italy for more camping adventures on the other side of the Adriatic Sea. As Fiete and I were in this beautiful country for a couple of weeks in March and April 2018, we not only met wonderful people but also checked out a couple of campsites along our route. In case you are planning this or a similar itinerary, these are our top spots to stay and why.

Change of Plans

I knew this would happen…

As you might know by now, I am sooo German – such a planner, organizer and change avoider. But being two months on the road now, and six weeks in Greece, I have to admit that a tiny part of my personal culture changed. I knew this would happen.

I got more relaxed and I started to realize that plans have to change if you want to make the best out of your travel adventure. And find your Happy Places…
