Escape Europe (2015 - trip to Tuscany)

Hi guys,

As last year, we wnet to Tuscany for our summer vacation.

The trip went great, no problems at all, beautiful weather what could you wish more for?

Picture of our camping spot nearby Cecina, camping Montescudaio, if you ever get to Tuscany, make sure to stop at this place, very roomy sites, which is a rare in Italy!

Picture of our site and one made during the trip at a stop on the highway. On the groundlevel it was 30 degrees Celcius, if you look closely you can see rhe snow on the top of the mountain.

Hi: Seef... Great to see you getting out for a rest. Do you get a lot of strange looks from campers and travelers? Alf

Is that normal truck traffic or a traffic jam?

Haven't driven in Holland ....but can tell you that there are a lot of stretches on the autobahn where the vehicle are almost bumper to bumper ( 2 or 3 lanes ) somewhere between 130 to 200 kilometres ( or more ) an hour ......can be a bit hair raising ..... but yes that photo really looks like a rest area ....

Beautiful, Seef! I was in Tuscany in May, but without an RV. (I was doing good just to get myself and a teensy little suitcase there!) Some friends and I stayed at an agriturismo near Trequanda. Loved it. It would be as a dream to camp nearby. Thanks so much for sharing your pics.
