We spent over two months in Romania and we free camped in our campervan almost every night. From beaches to parking lots to beautiful spots in the wild. We found the most amazing places where we swam, had campfires, stargazed and saw bears. Camping in Romania has been one of the best experiences of our lives. And for the most part it’s been completely free. We only paid for campsites when we needed to get water, empty our toilet and have showers.

We quickly left. But that was after several great nights in this spot. We also found the carpark at the mall Shopping City a great place to park.

We use the app Park4Night. There are loads of apps out there but we’ve found Park4Night to have the biggest selection. Plus, it’s free to use! You only need to pay if you want to leave reviews or add spots.

We moved across the world from New Zealand to London. We’re now travelling Europe in our self-built Mercedes Sprinter campervan.
We have a 2011 Mercedes Sprinter van. It was a standard cargo van that we converted into a campervan ourselves.
