    16th Dec, La Torreta, pop in for a week to see Smudger.. then onto Marjal for 23rd for a couple of weeks..

    Then on down to Marbellla area for a few days... then on down to Zahora for about the 10th Jan for a couple of weeks..

    Then poodle off up to Portugal, for a few more weeks, and hopefully end up at Jim`s rally, wherever.. :BigGrin:

    Not booked the ferry out "Yet".... if the weather is OK, will pop over the channel and drive down through France, and pop into Parc Verger to see Bob & Di and Munchie.. then shoot across country and stop of to see Garry at "Twin Lakes".. both are my favourite sites in France.. with cracking host`s.. :thumb:

    If the weather is *hit will go Portsmouth - Santandar...

    Any body else about then.. ?

    Hi Sir Mo, we hope to arrive at Benidorm around about the 12th December. We will be pitching up at Villasol, let us know when you arrive at Torretta and we will pay you a visit.

    We're off on 3 Dec on Poole-Santander.
    Initially heading south to the Gib border where we will stay in La Linea campsite "camping Sur" for a week or so. After that our plan is to head up towards Barcelona as friends have recommended Vilanova as a good place to stay over winter. Can anyone advise on this campsite?
    After that, we were planning to head back down to the Malaga get-together and then who knows?
    We have never experienced a funster get-together but looking forward to it/them.
    (We dont have an identifying badge though. Hope this will not stop us!)

    Stayed there a couple of times. Make sure they pitch you on top of hill near the mini zoo.(goats etc) as it is sunny up there. The other pitches down near the sawmill are to shady. Nice site but 5 degs cooler than Costa Blanca in winter. You can get train into Barcelona. Good Luck. BUSBY:BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Rough plans

    Hi, we will be at villasol 12th Dec, then Marjal in the New Year for a Spa detox :Rofl1: before heading to Morocco and then La Bella Vista meet-up. It's the ferry for us both ways.

    Hope to meet with others who will be around, as and when..

    If it's Vilanova Park you've had recommended it has a brilliant indoor pool. It's usually our first stop in Spain, for a couple of nights. As said, bit cooler than further south and it can be quite damp (humid) amongst all the trees.
    Enjoy your trip

    How to recoup some of your diesel money...

    Fray Bentos Pies... (no chicken or kidney)

    John Smiths Original Bitter (not Smooth)

    Angel Delights

    Or beef or pork or fish or lamb or veal or tripe or horse or dog or cat or.....

    But the tins are good. High quality plating with superb printing depicting the wet dreams of FB pie purchasers.
