Some first tips

Haven't had enough of camping yet? Here are four additional tips and recommendations from the Caravanya team.

Restoration of the driving capability
In some countries, you may stop for a maximum of one night in places where it is not explicitly prohibited to do so, to re-establish your driving capability. However, you should show any activity resembling camping. This permission is only for quiet overnight stays in motorhomes or caravans. You can find more information on this subject under the heading wild camping.

Naturally chasing away mosquitoes
Herbs such as mint, lemon balm, basil, and rosemary chase away mosquitoes while elevating your camping kitchen to a whole new level. If you don't have a green thumb, essential oils with lemongrass, eucalyptus, or clove aroma can also scare away the little beasts. The brave amongst you can make themselves unattractive to mosquitoes by eating garlic.

Take your bike with you
If space allows, take a bicycle with you. This way, you are much more mobile and less restricted to fixed routes. Camping sites are often located outside of towns and villages, so having a bicycle with you makes your life easier and is easier on your feet. Especially if you are traveling with a motorhome, it is quite cumbersome to drive into town or take a day trip.

Don't forget your toiletries
Since Corona, everyone is aware of the relevance of toilet paper and disinfectant. But we'll say it again: Not every camping and rest area is equipped with enough resources. Bring your toilet paper, soap, and disinfectant with you to avoid running short. Something is better than nothing.
