My favourite thing to do in Europe in the summer is live in a converted van with my boyfriend🚐we did it last year for 5 weeks in Spain and Portugal - swimming everyday, drinking red wine, meeting interesting locals, eating fresh fruit picked straight off the trees, parking up in a remote, unique location every night! It was so amazing that we are doing it again this year - this time we will spend 5 weeks exploring the coasts of Spain, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia... Bliss
