    Hello

    Was wondering if there was a Rally in 2013? Once we get our MH in March think we will stay in UK this year but would like to go to Europe next year but tad nervous on own so thought a Rally would be a good idea.

    best wishes

    Welcome to the fun. I dare say there will be one somewhere in the mean time enjoy, nowt to be scared of. Motorhoming in France is a doddle. The whole place is so laid back about parking and campering in General. It is a motorhomers paradise. The roads are clear, people friendly food and wine exquisite.

    Quite right too.

    It's a well kept secret that only 36% of FUNsters who cross the channel survive.

    We make light of it, you will see many posts, "visiting the Normandy Beaches" and I'll bet you thought it was war graves. Not so. It is FUNsters paying our respects to those who did not return.

    Looks like Road Runner is the latest, a part of Morocco that will for ever be England.

    I call for a minutes silence to honour those no longer with us.

    Welcome...
    Like others say, dont worry about going abroad. Especially France, you may find it easier than being in the UK !! With lots of free or low cost stopovers..
    Just avoid main holiday season and you will be fine. There is lots of info and help here on the forum, I doubt there will be a question you cant get answered...:thumb:

    as other posts. No need to worry about motorhoming abroad, it's a doddle.
    took our first trip abroad last year and ended up in Kefallonia off mainland Greece for 2 months. loved it so much we are travelling for 5 months this year and ending up in Greece for 3 months.

    I now have a new instilled confidence to venture to the french shores thanks to you funsters.

    I have been looking at the various photo's on here and looks like I have definately been missing something dragging my caravan round for the last few years :Rofl1:

    if not a rally you may think about a hook up with some one heading to the same area

    I have done France twice for 2 weeks a time
    last time i took a toad as it opens up a far easier way to get about
    with blue badge it was great paring under the Eiffel Tower free
    and good access in to all the attractions
    so if you have one take it with you (thats a tip for any one reading this)


    what ever you do enjoy it :thumb::thumb:
