Friday Favourites – Travelling to France
Welcome to Oaktree Motorhomes' Friday Favourites. This is where we pull together a number of news and social media resources that have caught our eye throughout the week. They may be funny or serious, but we aim to make them interesting and useful to you wonderful motorhome folk. Keep an eye out for these every Friday.
Your French adventure Starts here
If you're coming from the UK or Republic of Ireland where we drive on the left-hand side of the road then driving on the right-hand side can be slightly disorientating to start with but it is easily learnt and once mastered becomes second-nature.
Nevertheless, there are just a few things that need to be prepared for before you start your journey.
motorhome videos made for you
Having loads of photos and even a 360 degree Google photosphere is all well and good but we felt this was all very 'static' and didn't really show the vehicle off to its best. We've had a play with videoing the vehicles with a running commentary and we think this works very well. Now, not everyone performs well in front of a camera but our Motorhome technician, Dave Murden, has done a cracking job of the first few, so let's show you a couple of them so you know what they look, and sound, like. Our customers really seem to like them too as it gives a proper perspective of the vehicle.
What travel adventures have you planned for 2018? If, like many, you're hibernating in the UK then perhaps you'll be inspired to get your sun-chasing plans in place. We know of many that have scooted off to Spain and Portugal for the winter months and we don't blame them! We've found some really good blog resources if you fancy following in their footsteps. For example, we hope these guys give you some great ideas of what to do and where to go across Europe. Definitely worth following.
If you need Inspiration to travel, how about following these guys, Myles and Karen.
They, by their own admission, are a fun loving couple who sold up, packed it all in and bought a motorhome to travel, seeking out new countries to explore their cultures. They set out to live life with freedom and adventure in their pockets and to allow their experiences to feed their curiosity. Travel has now become their way of life and they do it not because they want ‘to escape life, but so that life doesn't escape them’. With each country they discover, their passion and purpose grows.
