  • Day80

    In 80 Tagen um Europa...

    September 6, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    ... ist nicht zu schaffen, denn solange sind wir jetzt mit dem blau-weissen Bulli unterwegs und haben in unserem entspannten Tempo erst ca. 10.000 km europäische Küstenstraßen hinter uns gebracht.
    Es ist eher Halbzeit 😎😎.

    Heute Vormittag hat Veronica mit uns gemalt. Zusammen mit Ihrem Mann aus Südafrika betreibt sie die beliebte Surfer-Strandbar „Soweto“ in Capbreton.

    Sie engagieren sich nebenher auch für den Schutz der Dünen, unterstützen Künstler aus Afrika und waren auch sofort von unserem kreativen Projekt begeistert.
    Die hohen Atlantik-Wellen auf ihrem Bild und dahinter machen einfach alle Surfer glücklich. 🏄‍♀️ 🏄‍♂️

    ... is not to realize . We have brought with the blue-white Bulli in our relaxed speed only approx. 10,000 km European coastal roads behind us.
    It is rather half time 😎😎.

    This morning Veronica painted with us. Together with her husband from South Africa she runs the popular surfer beach bar "Soweto" in Capbreton.

    They are also involved in the protection of the dunes, support artists from Africa and were immediately enthusiastic about our creative project.
    The high Atlantic waves in her picture and behind make all surfers happy. 🏄‍♀️ 🏄

    Capbreton Plage Oceanides

    July 10, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    After our 50th trip to Decathlon, the purchase of a new scooter and surfboard for the children to learn on, later we arrive in Capbreton just south of Hossegor, at an aire that has the beach as its back garden so are pretty happy with the very basic set up of electricity, cold beach shpwers (and we’re grateful to have an onboard toilet). One of the best things about France is how well set up it is for motorhomes, with so many safe places to camp up, at low cost, in great locations. It seems many French families spend their whole holiday in these aires with huge set ups.

    Like most of this coast, the beach is a beautiful long stretch of golden sand and pretty consistent, good surf. The sea is still warm so we all get to try out Amelia’s new board - Nic and I both getting one of our first surfs of the trip. The children love playing in the surf on the bodyboard and surfboard, and building castles; we’re enjoying the sunny weather, it feels more holiday like here, with a big surfers vibe, live music in the tiny beach bar. The children are becoming much more aware of the big waves along this coast too, so neither of them run straightout to sea thankfully now.

    We don’t venture out of the car park here, we came for the beach, and it’s so close, we don’t want to spend any hot days in towns right now - the coast here is all about big beaches and surf!

    We attempt to get the children totally clean in the beach showers, however, they’re a little cold and so neither of them are keen to stay in long, and poor Coen has no choice as Nic picks him up and showers him down to his whimpers of ‘dold, doldy!’ (can’t quite say the C yet!).

    The basic/lack of facilities (cold beach showers) mean we don’t stay long here - as our shower is basically just wardrobe storage full of wetsuits and who knows what, Nic ends up having an interesting conversation with the security guard on the campsite next door as he attempts to sneak in for a shower (the two french girls next door have been doing it, but I suspect their eye lashes flutter a little more than Nic’s) and he is busted - but being the sweet talker he is, after a conversation via google translate, the guard lets him shower, bait we plan to head up the coast to some of our favourite spots to spend a little longer.

  • Day85


    July 18, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Zum Glück bekommen wir Nachts noch einen Stellplatz direkt hinter der Düne. Eli fährt zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben Bodyboard und ich (Oli) versuche mich weiter im Surfen. Ansonsten hängen wir am Meer rum oder fahren Rad.
    Wir feiern Mattis 1. Geburtstag im WoMo und er spielt wie wild mit seinen Geschenken.
    Am Atlantik ist es bis jetzt super entspannt und wir freuen uns jetzt auf unsere bevorstehenden Tage in einer Ferienwohnung mit Freunden.

    Hossegor - surfing capital of France

    October 23, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    What we thought was going to be a 3 night stay around Arcachon turned into a week; there was so much to see! However, the weather turned chilly and we headed a little further south, to an area known as Les Landes, a vast tract of pine forests, lakes and seaside towns with seemingly endless beaches. We based ourselves at an aire at Soustons Plage for a couple of days, which was quite busy due to it being French half-term holidays. From there we jumped on the bike to celebrate Chris's birthday at nearby Hossegor, the surfing capital of France. We were in luck as our visit coincided with the French surfing championships and we found ourselves surrounded by cool dudes from all over the world, with bleached blonde hair and tanned bodies.

    Whilst the conditions were not epic, they were good enough to provide us with a taster of what all the hype is about. We enjoyed our moules frites lunch watching the action every bit as much as the surfers enjoyed their waves.
