TELL ME ABOUT THIS "OVERSEAS RV CAMPING CARAVAN!"

It is a 48-day FALL caravan in WESTERN EUROPE.  This caravan will rendezvous at a campground near Frankfurt, Germany, in mid-August and then travel for 46 nights in Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland with options into France and Lichtenstein.  The caravan ends at the same campground in early October.  The fall season is a wonderful time to travel, particularly in Western Europe.  Weather is usually comfortable, like “Indian Summer Days” in the USA, but called “Old Lady Days” in Europe!  Flowers are still in bloom and the beginnings of fall color may be seen in leaves in the mountain areas, which increases as the days go by.  Enjoy rolling countryside in the lowlands of Belgium and The Netherlands and later contrast this with alpine scenery in southern Bavaria, Austria and Switzerland.  Some of the major cities visited will include Brugge in Belgium; Amsterdam and Arnhem in The Netherlands; Wolfsburg, Berlin, Dresden, Munich and Regensburg in Germany; Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck in Austria and Susten (Zermatt) and St. Gallen in Switzerland.  The caravan will visit many small communities in all the countries that offer superb sightseeing and relaxed shopping opportunities.  Museums abound, featuring fine art, lace, architectural history, World War II memorabilia, concentration camp memorials, European history, Roman history, clocks, dolls and toys, transportation, plus much more.  If you can name something you want to see, there is probably a museum for it!  Enjoy whole small villages that in themselves are like museums, such as Rothenburg, Oberammergau and Dinkelsbuhl in Germany; Delft in The Netherlands and Rattenberg in Austria, as well as the older town center of the city of Brugge, in Belgium.  The list of sights could go on for pages!  You’ll have to go on this caravan if you want to begin exploring these fabulous places and sights in Western Europe!

HOW DOES THE RV CARAVAN OPERATE?

It is an economical, rented mini-motorhome camping caravan, 46 camping nights in length, covering much of the best that the countries visited have to offer.  The caravan is put together by experienced caravan leaders that take care of the many small details of a caravan, including having a driver’s meeting on travel days to review the day's route and sightseeing opportunities.  The caravans provide FREEDOM to do your ADVENTURING, when you want and at your own pace.  The caravans are run during a slightly off high-season time, when campgrounds and attractions are generally not as crowded.  They place you in the heart of the countries, with their people and culture, not in a "pushed for time" guided tour group!  Most travel is on the very scenic "back roads" at your own pace.  Caravans use preselected campgrounds where caravan members camp together.  On travel day's, you and another newly made friend can travel together, doing and visiting the things that interest you.  Each caravanner is provided with an European road atlas and a detailed road log (itinerary) containing daily suggested driving options and directions, as well as suggestions for sights to visit, plus selected small maps for each day’s travel.  Caravanners are encouraged to explore and seek out experiences that particularly fulfill your own personal interests in addition to the suggested sights.
