    Hi all, I am new here and stumbled across the site while looking for inspiration for somewhere to go at Easter. I'm Mark, my wife is Lisa and our little boy is Seth. We drive a Wildax Solaris which we brought last year. This is our first Van conversion as we previously owned a coachbuilt. For us the downsize in van has opened up a world of opportunity and we love getting out to Europe in the van. Last year we started with new year in Picardy. At Easter toured brittany mainly staying in aires. Later in the summer we found ourselves crossing the channel again heading down to the Costa Brava and travelling back home via a trip to the alps. After heading home for a few weeks and the inconvenience of having to work we returned back to France and headed to haute provence. We finished off 2012 and started 2013 by heading out the alps and a great ski trip at le grand bornand. If you want to see some of the aires and sites we have stayed at please feel free to have a look at our google map at http://goo.gl/maps/ptZ8e .

    If all the above is too much information please forgive me. I wasn't really sure what to say here.

    If you have any suggestions for Easter let me know. At the moment I am thinking Brugge, Ghent, De Hann, Oostende

    I was considering south but if I go down to Spain it's 4 out of 10 days spent belting it down down the motorway.

    LOL. I can understand the need to get out of Belgium. Lisa, is not keen on my idea because its Belgium. BUT we have done Picardy to death. I'm sure my van knows its way to every aire in Picardy (maybe not)... My other thoughts a late ski and back down to the alps. Decisions, decisions

    I'd head for Val Joly (Eppe Sauvage) and take it from there.

    Hi Mark

    I have sent you a message with the details. I'll be taking my WildAx to Newark Motorhome Show, with the Funster gang - will be also worth a trip 22-24 March if you're not doing anything.
