Travel Talk by Backpax Magazine

Our friends at Backpax Magazine have posted an article about wintry roadtrippin’ in a Wicked Camper!

Have a read and if it doesn’t convince you to boycott your planned hibernation then hopefully one of our winter specials will.
“When it comes to hitting the open road, campervans gain even more supporters over the colder months of the year. It’s no surprise – when a van has everything you need, why limit the autumn colour-watch to day trips only?…” http://www.backpaxmag.com/traveltalk37.html#Wicked

If you’re after budget accommodation and travel this winter, Wicked Campers campervans are cheap and cosy and have everything you need to make your trip a comfortable one.

Head to www.wickedcampers.co.uk for bookings or visit our specials page.

Losing Our Shit, The Wicked Way!

Our trip started in London we set off and drove down to catch a ferry to the top of France. Our first stop was Paris, we spent one night on the side of the road then arrived the next day. We only spent the day there to see the Eiffel tower then left that night to head towards the west coast.

We drove down the west coast stopping off at beaches drinking and partying all the way down to Bilbao were we went to the Bilbao festival. We spent 3 days there, it was amazing good times!!

On the Road with Road Runner

We managed to pick up Road Runner earlier than scheduled and headed up the north of England towards Edinburgh. We stopped off in York for a night and found a great free camp spot by the river in the middle of town. We spent the next morning wandering the cobbled streets and the walls of the city. We then made our way to Scotland and arrived Edinburgh which was a stunning place. Checked out the castle and the city for the day and then gapped to over the lochs. From there we made our way to back into England and stayed in the lakes district which was really nice then headed for wales where we had a night in Cardiff. From there we checked out Bath and Stonehenge.

We then made our way to Dover and headed to France, we arrived to stifling heat and drove straight to Paris. Three days in Paris didn’t really do it justice but we had an amazing time wandering around and seeing the sights. The Louvre and the Eiffel tower at night were amazing. We hit the coast heading down through Royan and down to Bayonne where we just drove through but we stopped in Biarritz for a few hours. It was a really cool place with nice beaches and the city sitting right above them. It was like an old coastal seaside village in a city with heaps of old buildings right on the cliffs and around the water. We stayed that night a few beaches down the coast, we cooked dinner on the beach which was real nice. From there to make our way into Spain for running of the bulls. What an experience, just being there was incredible let alone been involved with whole thing.
