Hi there! We are Angela and Monica, founders of In Camper con Gusto, and in this section, we would like to explain who we are and what we can do for people like you, people who share our passion for travelling in the open-air, people who cannot go on holiday without the camper!
My name is Angela, and together with my husband I have been a camper enthusiast since 1998, along with our various four-legged friends who lovingly shared our camper holidays with us. We always tried to avoid the village-format holiday, and even when we did not own a camper, we always preferred to spend our holidays going from place to place, renting rooms or apartments, so that we could enjoy more freedom. Then we started to understand that our desire to travel, to see, to come into direct contact with the lands we were visiting and the sense of freedom that we sought needed to go a stage further, so we decided to rent a camper for a long weekend….. and it was love at first sight!
More than 20 years have already passed and many different campers, we have been on many different trips; I have come to understand that certain aspects of the travelling life have become ever more important for us, and I think also for you as camper enthusiasts. Above all, it is vital to have the certainty that you will find a safe and secure site for your camper, and with this I am thinking of the fact that too often we find roadsigns indicating possible rest areas that in fact no longer exist, or in town areas that suddenly have become less safe. Beyond this, we are also always looking for locations that allow us to enjoy genuine local traditions, and not areas that have been cobbled together artificialy to attract hordes of tourists.
And so here we are with In Camper con Gusto, we will be pleased to welcome you to our region, offering you guaranteed rest-sites, visits and meetings where you can learn about, or improve your understanding of not only Emilia, a part of Italy that I think deserves a trip to savour!
I am Monica and even if I am not a camper enthusiast, I know well the world of the travelling life, which I love, because I always spent my family holidays – from when I was small to my teenage years – in a camper. Whether it was to the riviera in Romagna, or the Tuscan sea-board, as soon as the school holidays began, my parents hooked the camper up to the family car, and off we went!
Preparing our bags, cleaning the tent, preparing food for the journey, and finally departure: this ritual always made me happy, and I will never forget the beautiful feelings that this trip of holiday inspired in me, above all the sense of freedom.
As I grew up, my focus changes, and I started to holiday by motorbike with my husband, serving as his “ballast”. It was on one trip for work that, 15 years ago, I met Angela: we shared a lot of time together in an office, between the office files we discussed our secrets and obviously our holidays memories. She was a camper enthusiast, I was a biker with a camper past, when we left work, we would day-dream about what we could do with all those journeys and the time spent.
The turning point came a few years ago, when we decided to put together our passion for travel with our love of campers, by creating a platform to promote the best of our region, Emilia, so that other people could come to know and love it as we do.
So having started as a teenager always in and out of a camper, I moved to jumping into the motorbike saddle and now here I am again getting in and out of the camper! But the concept has not changed: my love of travel, the desire to discover, to find new things has not changed whether it is in a camper or on a motorbike: the vital thing is to never lose your enthusiasm!
WHAT WE DO
Since we have always loved to discover places where to learn about traditions, culture and make food and wine experiences, we created In Camper con Gusto which initially promoted the provinces of Piacenza, Parma and Reggio Emilia, where we live, then we continued in other regions always with the desire to offer those who travel meeting opportunities, through a card, to allow those who want to discover territories, a craftsmanship, linked to food and wine to be preserved and enhanced.
In Camper con Gusto it was born in 2015. Not only that, we are also a tourism marketing cooperative in the field of plein air campers, motorcycles, cycle tourism and walkers. We have come a long way and we still have a long way to go.
