My girlfriend and I are hoping to visit Europe and tour for a period of two or three months in a motorised caravan which I intend to purchase in the UK. I hold both a UK and a South African passport and my girlfriend holds a South African passport. We would initially like to spend some time in the UK visiting family and friends and after purchasing a caravan there we want to travel right round Europe without any fixed itinerary. We want to spend time in places that interest us and then move on but cannot predict exactly how long we will be in any particular country or when we would be entering and leaving it. We will be staying at Caravan parks along the route.
I am a retired person aged 76 with pension and investment income and my girlfriend is a freelance writer aged 50. As such she earns varying amounts each month but can produce evidence of her earnings each month for the last three months or so. I think we should be able to satisfy approving authorities that we have sufficient funds to support ourselves. We would like to purchase an open dated return ticket from South Africa and back again.
Given these facts is there any possibility that my girlfriend will be able to obtain a Schengen visa covering her travel arrangements?
