The dogs have been cuddled, the parents have been handed the dirty clothes and we’ve eaten a meal that has actually been cooked in a kitchen!
Now its time to reflect on the amazing week we’ve had!
909 miles travelled
416 photos taken
153 hours of adventure
33 MPG average
15 hours of driving
5 towns visited
2 tanks of fuel
Number of laughs uncountable
And I wouldn’t change any of it. We’ve had the most incredible week exploring Scotland as part of our Christmas holidays. Working clockwise from the below picture, we’ve visited Stirling, Aviemore, Stonehaven, Dunure and New Galloway.
We’ve driven through wind, blue sky, sleet, ice and snow. Surprisingly for Scotland, no rain!
Now, the beauty of van travel is it can cost as much or a little as you would like. As this was our christmas break, we pushed our budget out a little bit and had a few treats. In total, for the week we spent circa £450. Please see the below breakdown;
£125 on Fuel
£60 on Food shopping
£80 on Eating out
£184 on Activities
£33 per day for all this fun!
Hopefully, this provides some insight into a van holiday and the expenditure involved!
