Dinant, Belgium

Dinant, Belgium sits along the Muse River. It is a city lodged into the river valley giving it unbelievably pristine views. We stopped in Dinant to break up the drive between Luxembourg City and Delft, Netherlands. Instead of driving the RV into Dinant’s narrow streets we parked at the top of the Citadel. Be careful […]

An Afternoon in Luxembourg City

We popped into Luxembourg City for the afternoon mostly because we were passing through. We had no plan, which was the point of our France Passion trip, but found lots to do in the city. The first issue was where to park the RV. We had read online that the city parking lots could accommodate […]

We actually almost didn’t make it here. As we approached the bridge, a large warning sign said large vehicles should use caution. We were close to […]

Chateau D’Epire was another amazing little find. This vineyard has been in the family for six generations. We popped in […]

The Incredible Machines of Nantes

This was one of those incredible finds that we almost passed by but turned out to be a full day adventure with the kids.  The number one reason we thought about skipping this attraction was its location in a city. We were so nervous about driving through the city in the RV. It was touch […]

Exploring Mont Saint-Michel with Kids

Mont Saint-Michel, a historic fortified town and monastery in northeastern France, has been on our Europe bucket-list since we arrived. This iconic island is something I felt had to be seen. I also had large expectations about its grandeur. I was right that seeing and exploring the island was worth the trip, but it took up much […]
