Wild Camping   Leave a comment

A large proportion of our trip will involve wild camping. For two reasons, 1. It’s free and 2. In some of the areas we will be traversing there just aren’t any campsites. So far we have camped in a pine forest outside Colditz in Germany, a carpark in Aucshwitz town, by a lake outside Albert in France and a forest close to the Polish/ Latvian boarder. Good camp craft means getting off the beaten track in a forest or gehind a hill well hidden to minimise bother from locals and police. Get up early and get the tents down quick in case we need to make a sharpish exit. So far my favourite spot was Colditz. It was miles from the road and I saw a deer. As I write this we are in the polish woods. I’m huddled down in my sleeping bag. We are nearish to a dual carriageway so I can hear the cars much more. 7 start in the morning to make for Latvia. It’s not all luxary, fine wine and cheese this overlanding you know. Good night.
