Motor Home Trip to Russia Powered By Docstoc
					Being a motorhome enthusiast for five years now, I’ve always dreamt of that extended
trip of twelve weeks or so in Russia. Being a self employed carpenter, I finally
realised that I was in a position to make this dream a reality. My wife Jane and our
faithful dog Jasper were more than willing to be travel partners on this trip of a
lifetime. So after much research, planning and packing we were finally on the road to
Russia and the magic of the Baltic region. My motorhome is a six year old four berth,
A Class Dethleffs with a Fiat Ducato engine and our previous longest trip was a seven
night trip to Wales, covering 800 kilometres. This trip started with a rough ferry trip,
to take us to the continent, followed by a pleasant but long road journey to our
destination. We decided to make two overnight stops on our way there and these were
mainly in campsites, which suited us perfectly, as it broke up our journey. One feature
of the journey was finding the local fuel prices very consistent, but certainly cheaper
than we have been used to on other trips. Our Magellan satellite navigation system
was pretty useful, although traditional maps are a must on a journey of this type. In
fact we used maps mostly for navigation and the sat nav to identify nearby fuel
stations. On arrival at our destination, our first impressions were satisfactory. The
small, commercially run campsite clearly had absolutely all the amenities we required
and was very like the pictures in the online website that we had viewed in our
preparation. For a site with one hundred or so pitches, we found the staff rather
friendly and the site was very quiet even during the day. The weather was very good,
considering that we travelled in April. The local market each Saturday was a great
source of fruit, vegetables, meat and cheeses. The overall experience was an enjoyable
one and I would thoroughly recommend a motorhome holiday at Russia.
