RollGlobal Friends From The Road: Bumblebee takes Europe
We woke up in the morning alone in the campground. It was nice to have the place to ourselves. The weather appeared to be cooperating which was nice after so many days of cold wind and rain. Making the most of it we headed out to the beach for a long walk. We were gone for maybe 3 hours and when we returned the campground was full of about 20 RVs containing French retirees, including one couple who had parked no more than 10 feet from our tent. We were really surprised to see so many of them there especially since the season was ending and the campground was closing soon.
With all the RVs a little VW van appeared containing a couple our age. When we returned they were hanging up a hammock. We commented on how jealous we were and they offered to let us take a swing if we wanted. We asked if they came with the RVs and they said “what the grey nomads? Ha, we pulled in just before them.” And so we met Liz and Colin, a Kiwi and Aussie couple (is that even legal?). We chatted for a bit and learned they were on a road trip around Europe. They had been on the road for about a month and would be continuing through December. They have a great blog about their adventures with some fantastic pictures.
