    After a less than warm summer spent touring around the UK this year, we have decided 2012 we will look for warmer climes, so are planning to leave in March for Portugal spend some time there then wonder back through Spain and France taking about 3 months, any one got any idea's would be more than pleased.

    Anyone else making plans yet. :Smile:

    Great Post Carol. I in fact love this time of year and for me it's what haveing a MH is all about. Everyone is getting ready to battern down the hatches, we on the other hand are getting excited about upcoming Skiing.
    We are off to Scotland in New Year for some skiing and then getting plans ready for a big skiing trip In February 2+ weeks in the snow.....:BigGrin:
    Coming home for a few weeks before getting back out for some late snow :BigGrin:

    Then Next year, a short holiday in the summer...But more plans for more weekends away in our own great country. :thumb:

    Slightly sketchy just now, apart from crossing the channel in early March, and heading into Germany for a stellplatz hop along the Mosel, lots of cycling, and heading down to the Black Forest and Bavaria. And then ... who knows?

    Hopefully still got some life in this year yet, and certainly the spring. As far as next summer goes, well sept time i think, we will be trotting off across europe to Italy, Bari to be precise, then getting the ferry across to Dubrovnik, and back up the Istrian coast, into Slovenia, then head back to blighty missing places we stayed at on the way out. Nothing fixed or set in stone, a bit of meandering with a loose itiinery:BigGrin:
    Been to Croatia three times before, still plenty to see.:Laughing:

    Queens Jubilee

    We are going to London for the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations, though having trouble trying to book in at the Caravan Clubs site as they don`t take bookings before November.

    A tad short sighted we think given the occassion and also with the olympics a couple of months after, people want and need to be able to plan for these avents.
