    Hi, My names is Jim. I've just joined and have been encouraged to introduce my self.
    Past holidays have mainly involved fast and furious car journeys to and from southern Italy where my wife's father comes from. We had enjoyed this until about 4 years ago when we were directed off the autoroute at Nantua in France at about 7.00am.

    We followed the diversion signs, and as we left the town (Nantua) we drove past a small lake,the mist was rising from the lake and the sun was shining from above the mountains, There were motorhome's of all nationalities parked right next to the lake, old fella's walking back from the town with baguettes, the wives were laying tables for breakfast. We (Deb and I ) just looked at each other and realised what we'd been missing !!

    2 years later we bought our 1st camper, a VW transporter which we had converted. It's small, suits us down to the ground at the moment, and we love it dearly.

    Sorry for the waffle !
    Looking forward to fun, friends, and usefull info !

    Jim

    Hi Jim, welcome to Motorhome Fun :thumb: I was in haulage until 4 years ago, its a lot better driving the motorhome as you can stop and start when you want.........:Wink::BigGrin: Were in Spain until March but your intro just reminded use we need some bread....:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1: We never got the same feeling in France in January as it was covered in snow and cold, but still saw the frenchman with their baguettes, it makes me smile when they only give you a bit of paper with it and no bag.:BigGrin:
