Hi Grath

We know many of the sites you have posted on this and the Portuguese thread and looking at the pictures makes my already itchy feet even itchier. We have now spent a month in a motorhome without wheels (i.e. a house) and, although Xmas with the grandchildren was great, I'm thinking that I don't want to do it too often! But never mind, in a few days we'll be jetting off to the sun of south-east Asia (without the van!) and it should be warm enough to get our home out of storage when we get back in April. Next winter we will DEFINITELY be re-visiting a few of those wonderful spots in your pictures. Thanks for cheering me up and have a great new year.

Thanks John, it's given me itchy feet as well.
We hope to do similar next year, but don't know where as yet.
Maybe east for a change.
Have a great time:wave:

I never got around to it before as just couldn't be bothered, but here with a bad back at the moment, so a little time on my hands. Daughter next year wedding is off, so if we can get the house sold quick, then off we go, or we might even not try to sell and again off we go.
maybe Greece, Italy don't know yet.
Come on guys, lets have a few more pics

hi grath ,i say keep the house. i like travelling in winter so italy and greece are out , i found them not warm enough.santander across to barcelona or valencia then just follow the sea . get there begining of no, come back end of april is nice . maybe 3months in maroc or just spain and portugal. i dont go through france now i like uk in summer cant think of a better place to be. gradually stock up with things for winter then off . we did have plans for libya and egypt but i think best miss them out for a while.ha ha . must get a camera all my picks are either what my ex partner took or my next door neighbour . we travel with our neighbours sometimes ,three thousand miles from home and still have the same neighbours . hee hee . dare say we shall meet u one day . have fun keep trucking . alan.

I would like to point out that these pics were put on the forum to show what can be expected from o/n parking locations and not pretty pics.
I always think that a photo say's a million words.

Sorry, Grath, but I never take pictures of the aires we stay at, instead relying on the pictures on the CAMPINGCAR-INFOS (http://www.campingcar-infos.com) website. I'm enjoying yours though!

Thanks John, I have many more nicer ones but they show too much personal information.
I have just put a few in the French Aire thread.
Thanks for looking.
I did compile a list of every aire we have used with GPS but too much work to sort it all out. I am sure folks could find the locations by name only
