Date – 12 & 13 JUNE 2018 Rivierpark Wischlingen, Dortmund Site code : 64313 11euro + 1 for electricity 24euro for x 2 nights
This campervan spot was our 2nd overnight on our trip and where we learnt the most about using our van, first time we saw a dumping station and electricity connection, had to learn how to reverse and guide in to the water station to fill it up (we tried that a few times so due to the quiet and large camping site we were happy to learn here!)
TRANSPORT INTO CITY
All in all, this van site was pretty basic, we were glad that it was large and there werent many people so we could start learning about our van and how to use it. Its a bit of a trek also to get into the city but for our needs it was good enough and we enjoyed getting to learn about the transport system and it was sort of an introduction to Germany which made us more confident and I loved how simple it was, took a bit of pressure off as its 50 x easier than traveling around Aus IMO, public transport is awesome in europe!
I just discovered your blog/website and love it. It is exactly what I’ve been comparing (renting a car/staying in hotels, Eurail and campervan). I already have a bit of an advantage in that I own a Fiat Ducato here in Baja California (20 minutes South of San Diego, California but about 200% cheaper as it relates to cost of living) , Mexico and that I am used to driving on the RIGHT side, lol. In any case, I’m excited to continue to read how your journey progressed.

Oh wow thats so fantastic!! Thats actually a perfect sized vehicle to drive around epecially in europe where the streets are so narrow cos we got stuck a few times with our huge RV right in the very small town centres! I think you really do have an advantage there with your vehicle 🙂 also, its good to have the capacity to want to research into the differnet costs and comparisons, its a big part of travel, ive noticed A LOT of people dont actually like doing that side of the research which is interesting, thanks for your comment and sharing your story 🙂
