Camping is something Dutch people love to do. You create your house on wheels, just like you’re used to at home. The same foods, because hey, in a foreign country they don’t have peanut butter, chocolate sprinkles and several other typical Dutch goods. “What the farmer doesnt know, he doesn’t eat”. Some fun Dutch old-fashioned culture for you and to make it even better… I found a vid showing a Bugatti T57 Stelvio as towing car.
Get your ‘drag cabin’ and move home to another place. I am maybe not a typical Dutchy, but if the caravan would be pulled by a Bugatti and I was able to drive all the way to the destination, then I would think about it. Though it is even better to replace that caravan with a trailer and another Bugatti on it, like a T35!
In 1948 thousands of city people left their home towns to have a quiet holiday in nature, while people from small towns packed their stuff and came over to camp in the cities. This vid from 1948 is about a French journalist who is camping in the centre of Paris, as a protest because all hotels were already booked. But it could have been a Dutch family too… The Champs-Élysées seemed the perfect place for that. Much appreciated by the Gendarmes. Now let’s see if we can find that newspaper about this happening or to identify this Stelvio. I challenge you!
