Friday Favourites – 5 Jan 2017Enquire now
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.
Now that 2018 has arrived, many of us motorhomers are looking forward to bringing our vans out of hibernation and planning our adventures. Some of you may have been travelling throughout the winter having sought out the warmer weather. We are truly jealous!
With thoughts of those new adventures, places not yet visited, mountain or beach views each morning, we’ve put together some inspirational pieces to get your travel planning juices flowing.
UK Based Travel ideas for 2018
There is no doubt that with Motorhome ownership on the increase, partly due to the sliding value of the pound since the EU referendum,and the decision to ‘staycation’ in the UK has been a much easier decision for many. Regardless of Brexit… people still want to go on holiday. Exploring the UK has never been so accessible so get those motorhomes warmed up and kitted out and go explore the wonders that the UK has to offer.
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 are you planning for next year? 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 camper van 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.
