Summer 2015 living and travelling Europe in a van – Part 1

Alright summer is definitely over now so I thought I’d do a roundup post of summer 2015 spent living in my van and travelling Europe – my second summer in the van. It’s quite long (over 50 photos) so I split it into in 2 parts. The second part is here

I was in Greece. It was getting warm so I started to go slowly north

I put together a photo gallery: Driving north through Greece

I’d spent all of Spring writing the ebook. I promised myself a good summer

I found some really nice places to camp

See post on Lefkada the island for vans

And went to the best beach I have ever been to!

I was on my own. With all this space

And explored northern Greece

Then my friend Matt from the UK came to see me

But we carried on driving north into Montenegro

We tried to row across lake Skadar to Albania but instead we found this old prison

The good wildcamping spots are harder to find here but they are worth it

living-and-travelling-europe-diy-campervan-summer-2015-41

We found some nice hidden spots on the Croatian coast

Matt went back to England after 3 weeks. I kept exploring Croatia

I went to Pag Island – see this post

These are the summers I always dreamt about

living-and-travelling-europe-diy-campervan-summer-2015-9

Meeting other travellers and van people

And making new friends

Time for another festival: Freqs of nature, Germany

I finally got to go to the city I always wanted to go to: Berlin

I set up camp with the other vans on a van street

My friend Finn (from last summer) got a 24hr bus from England to meet me in Berlin. He brought new music!
