SAFE AND DRY AT HOME. DORDRECHT, NL

The Story

It all began with my first car in '06. A VW Beetle '73, which hasn't been driving over more then 18 years. After the restoration i used the beetle for a couple of years as daily driver and made several trips across Europe over the next 12 years.

Over the time, the wish for a camper became larger, we used the beetle only for vacations anymore and the benefits of more space en luxury became more and more welcome.
Sooner then expected, In august 2020 we found our bus.

VACATION 2023

With the arrival of our first child, we planned a short (2 weeks) trip to Liguria Italy to experience the vacation life with the little one. To transport the extra bike trailer for our family bike trips we bought a matching Westfalia Essen trailer. Within a couple of days we arrived at our first destination Finale Legure and, after a couple of days, we drove further to Cinque Terre.

VACATION 2022

In the first part of the 2022 holiday season, we went to the French coast for a week. Via Gent to Dunkirk and from there along the coast down until Boulogne sur Mer. From there we pulled inland through the Opale nature reserve. We ended the holiday with the 'Rumes 26th international VW Meeting' near Lille but just over the border in Belgium.

VACATION 2021

The trip in the end of June 2021 was our first trip with the camper. With main activity's of road-biking and (different types of) climbing we crossed Austria, the Italian Dolomites and Swiss in almost 3 weeks. We passed famous passes like Passo san Gothardo and did the Sella Ronda both by car and bike.

RESTORATION P2

Late 2020 the van was sold and after some short testing trips the second major restauration was started. The overall technical state was OK but cosmetically improvement and a total strip to reveal hidden rust where essential. Therefore the van got restored in the winter of 2020-2021.

RESTORATION P1

After a aborted trip to the middle east in 2010 this car was used as a 'donor van' for parts. The previous owner saved it by letting it technically restore and used it for several vacations until 2020.
