How to find wild camping and aires for motorhomes in Europe
When we first started travelling in our motorhome, the thought of wild camping TERRIFIED me. I mean, I was completely against it. I'm pretty sure my husband and I had a full-on fight about it!
I didn't know where to find safe places to stay, where we were allowed to stay or what the rules were. I thought we were going to be arrested or murdered in our beds!
But we've learnt a lot since then. Heck, we've travelled through 11 countries and done over 17,000 miles!

The first thing is to watch this video, which explains where we search and how we find places to stay:

So, now you know the sites and you know how to use them, you need to get a rough idea on where you're heading. Obviously, you figured that out all the way back last week when you planned your rough route, right?? If you missed it, here's the post:[irp posts=”6449″ name=”How to create a Road Trip Route & Itinerary”]
I often do this as we're driving, but it's good to have a rough idea of where we're heading when we get out of the tunnel. We want to move away from Calais and will probably drive most of the way through Belgium, possibly towards Bruges.
It's always good to have a couple of options for your stop- don't just rely on one. There have been a couple of times when we've turned up somewhere and the place has become a building site, or it's been full. Having a couple of options allows for a plan B. For the same reason, we try to stop early evening if possible, to ensure we get a space in good time.
