Inbox today (and this week) – in my inbox…

Today I have as usual an eclectic mix of information sent to me from Campervan and motorhome rental companies and Tourist Boards from all over the world.

At the top of the list is a useful guide to planning a road trip of Great Britain from Bunk Campers who offer a good range of campervans and motorhomes to rent in the UK.  Today though they are concentrating on providing some useful planning info and have titled their blog “Britain by Campervan: The ultimate 14 day driving route” . It starts in from their depot in London and takes in a route to Cornwall Visit Cornwall Tourist Board via Sussex Sussex Tourist Boardand back up through Devon.  Visit Devon tourist board.

From there is takes a route back up to Stone Henge Stonehenge.  They then suggest a trip to Wales Visit Wales and then up to the north of England to Hadrian’s Wall:

From there it is a drive down the west coast to East Anglia Visit East Anglia.  

There are campsites all across Britain and Bunk recommends the Caravan club sites.  Caravan club    I would also add too.

So, booking a Bunk and touring Great Britain will give you a good insight into our unique country whether you are from here. Or, an overseas visitor. Thanks Bunk!

Next is an email about California featuring Lake Tahoe Lake Tahoe
