[Europe!] Montenegro and Albania in our Sportsmobile

Hey guys,

having one of the very few 4x4 SMBs in Europe I'd like to show you how we use it over here.

Our trip report you will find here.

Please be aware: It is a hoorible google translation from the german original. But I guess you will understand what it is about.

Looks like a lot of fun! And very few hotel stays. Long live the Selfiwahn! LOL I also liked the cow in the mini van. I wonder if there was a poop shoot...

Thanks for sharing.

Didn't realize you live in Nuremberg. I was there with my wife and son in August at the beginning of our travels in Germany and Austria (we did some bike touring in Austria). Would have been cool to see your rig in person.

Great trip! Thanks for sharing. Many good photos, but this one stopped me and made me look closer. Great composition.

Make sure you post when you are down this way. There are a lot of vans here in SoCal so a meetup would be fun. How are you getting your van over?

Wow, what a beautiful trip. And beautiful photos. Some of those landscapes make me want to move there. What equipment were you using?

I thought about that ... bringing my van over there. Ther are a few companies. But for just 4 weeks of travelling it is just to expensive!

So we rented a quite similar SMB at TontoTrails in Durango.


@SteelheadJones
Thank you! You should definately think about moving or at least visiting this small but beautiful country.

My equipment ist not really high end .. It is all just taken by a Canon PowerShot 110 and an iPhone 6.
