Been in the south of France for last 6 weeks and seen very few Brits ( they must have known we were there)
Lots of Germans and many with Big Big vans and towing. Obviously transiting to warm places for winter, not even too many Dutch, strange!
But yesterday coming north around the Lot and Dordogne area, lots and lots of Brit vans and most concentrating that hard on the rd, they couldn’t be bothered to wave
I do think Spain and Portugal will have a very busy winter. The Germans have taken over! Mind you, we get on well with the Germans, always have
Oh and several of the Brits were pretending to be French
Traveling in pairs

Must have all been in the north of Spain. Have honestly never seen and talked to so many British people whilst motorhoming abroad, out with Calais, oh and Benidorm of coarse.
.......forever trying to fly sideways though time!
Off topic warning...... We aren't keen on travelling with others. We're quite happy to meet with friends at an aire or site but we would rather travel alone. We have done it early on for security reasons but now we don't want the faff if someone wants to use a different route or gets lost.
Spain this morning sitting by the beach €1 each for a coffee.

On the aire at coimbra we’ve found all the lost Brits about a dozen vans here , agree with OST of France if only we could get a dog friendly crossing would miss it out altogether
Though I do have to agree that France seems expensive. But that's chiefly because the exchange rate has tanked following the Brexit vote.
To be quite honest, we have not found it too bad and certainly not as expensive as we expected!why? Because we never ate out, never even had a coffee or a beer away from the van, and we shopped at Lidl😀We can just as easy people watch on an aire as from a bar and much cheaper 🍷🍺🍷🍺
Just spent two months going round Czeck Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Hungary....we’ve finally met our first Brits back in Austria. We stayed at one campsite in the mountains in Romania where the owner got really excited that we were there, his first Brits ever in 14 years....insisted on taking our photos for his website!
