Practical Motorhome


Eating and travel are very closely intertwined. It is impossible to set out on a trip without food playing a major part in the experience, from the meals we eat on the road, to the people and stories associated with the delicious produce we might encounter.

I would argue that the ability to sample foods and regional delicacies that are not available to us in everyday life is one of the greatest pleasures of travel, particularly motorcaravanning.

I have lost count of the number of times we have been driving through a small village, or past a little roadside market, and pulled the motorhome over on seeing purveyors of local produce that we would otherwise have little opportunity to cook with. Sampling their goods and hearing the stories behind them adds to the experience, not just of our trip, but also of the meal we eat as a family at the end of the day.

For us, that’s one of the great advantages of travelling in a motorhome, rather than being in a car and staying in hotels or B&Bs – the ability to buy and cook the foods that help to give the region we are exploring its identity.
