    Well the word on the Portuguese aires is there are 10,000 more French people in Portugal and Spain this winter as they cant get fully comp insurance to go to Morocco!!!!! ???? Is this true ?

    Certainly in my beach aire tonight the place is swamped with frenchies, four of them with big vans and towing cars taking up loads of spaces!!!!

    Must be even worse down south :(

    Just hope they dont all get together and start singing French songs :censored:

    The last time there were that many French in the Iberian Penisula we had to send a certain Duke of Boots down there to sort them out. :)

    As @jonegood says - plenty of french here in maroc, but not as many as last year.

    Never mind.

    Bit of luck they will have moved by the time we do Portugal on the way back in april/may!

    But our French Cousins take up so much less room on sites than others do.

    They can get six vans in the space normally taken up by two!

    A surprise for me is the number of FIN S N D plates, a long drive for them.

    Loads of Dutch of course.

    Yes they are far more numerous this year. I always think that when I see one or a lorry as the Finnish trucks are quite prevalent around here for some reason.

    That explains why this site is jammed up with French vans ( and by all accounts causing a bit of strife one way and another.... )
