    I know this is a bit of a strange one, but having spent a very enjoyable long weekend at the Great Dorset Steam fair, I noticed that there was a distinct lack of Indian/Pakistani/Asian motorhomers around.

    Have i just not met any? (I love to meet lots of people from different walks of life/religions and have a good old chat)

    Only ever seen one non-white family in a motorhome....and they looked west indies.

    Possibly the nomadic gene is missing.

    I have met many non-white-European campers this summer.
    Every race and nationality that you can imagine.
    Even an extended Malaysian family recently - about 15 people in a mixture of tents, caravans and motorhomes.
    Pleasant folk.

    But what is it with the Dutch?

    Over the course of a month I might see one Spanish camper, two French, five German but then about 100 Dutch!
    What makes the Netherlanders such keen travellers? :)

    A Dutch colleague once described his countrymen as "Wooden shoes, wooden heads, wouldn listen"
    Another gem he came out with was "every Dutch man has an opinion and he will make sure you will listen to it"

    You hardly ever see ( oh my, this is gonna sound bad ) any of those people in the Lakes either, plenty of Chinkies though, they can't get enough of Beatrix Potter.
    Dual language signs in Bo'ness and Ambleside are in English and Mandarin.

    I once saw an Asian family picnicking on the roundabout in Dock Road, Chatham, It was Chatham Navy day as I recall ! Did not see any transport nearby though! A couple of weeks back
    I was caught up in the traffic jams for the Jala Salana a Moslem festival held on a farm near Farnham . Literally hundreds of Toyota Prius and Mercs on rout to the Farm. No caravans or motorhomes for overnighting though! Where do they stay I ask?

    I asked a friend of mine from Bangladesh and he said it wasn't part of their lives at all. Camping, caravans, motorhomes just do not figure in there lives.

    Blimey, I just want to ad that I really hope this post doesn't get taken in the wrong way - its purely me being very nosy. I would hate to think I have offended any one :eek:.

    If anything like the Packastani's near us they have no time for leisure activities, running paper shops 24/7.
