    Just started this thread for the peeps that are going to meander back thru Portugal, Spain etc and not to clog up the Morocco thread, so you can fill your boots here Phil with your pix:D

    Great idea Marc!

    Is that the Pera where Mikkis Place is? Is it still open or have the competition managed to get it shut down? When we were there it looked like they were going to have to close half of the site.

    Edit. Oh yes, see from the Morocco 2016 thread.

    Yes still open Terry, it appears they may still have to close half the site!! they will know this coming week, it's a shame really a lot of work has gone into the place as you are aware. I think they have resigned themselves to this much the pity,
    We're still here at Mikki's got two new front tyres fitted today, awaiting another garage to get back to me re my sticking calliper on nearside brakes, could be here a few more days before the Barragems;)

    I have put the camera away Mark. We are still at Prai de Rocha and enjoying it very much. There is a couple of Germans setting up a Motorhome Shop here, been at for a few days now and it looks like it's going to be the bees knees when it's done. He let me have a look at his catalogue book and it's mega. I think he might be starting a Franchise for one of the big German company's the book has everything in it you could want and I suspect he can get any item delivered to site very quickly. A Bit pricey though, saw exact same seats we bought in the UK are definitely more expensive in his catalogue.
    Our plan going forward is to stay here till at least Monday then head to Mina San Demingos and take it from there, either way we will be heading Northwards with a plan to arrive at Irun on 22nd and then onwards to Calais from there crossing on the 29th.
    It would be good to see you or any other Funster at Mina San Demingos, there are none here that I've come across yet although one or two brits but mostly French. Apparently, this site has done very well since beginning of January with a lot of French and Dutch overwintering here. There is probably 150 odd motorhomes still here.
    Your right about the wine, a large glass for 1 € at the on site bar and we have a wine o'clock every day. Going walk about in the town today and tomorrow, Camp-site boss has promised me the Man U game on the big TV in the bar and it should be a good game. We will do well to beat Spurs at their home ground I think.
    How's Sam, Mena was asking for here.

    Hi Phil & Mena
    We're still at Mikki's trying to sort out a mechanic to do my brake calliper? we are hoping to get away Mon if it can be sorted!!
    The same German guy was here at Mikki's for quite some time. I had a brochure of his chucked in away few days ago while sorting the van and getting all the Moroccan dust out, never bloody ending.
    I believe that James an English chap, he used to work here at Mikki's is giving him an hand to set up, Max did not get along strangely enough with the Germans dogs:D they are a nice couple tho, he used to do work on the vans and his wife worked in the shop.
    I doubt we will hit Minas as we were there last year and we are looking at doing the Barragems through the centre on the way up north, We will be heading over to Peniche so I can get my Gnashers sorted 3 nice aires there and a municipal campsite, if our paths don't cross from here in, it was great being the Lead driver all the way from Ouarzzarte to Meknes till you took over in Meknes for 12km and got lost in Moulay Idriss:LOL::LOL: all jokes aside, enjoyed our 8 days travelling together(y) safe travels fella, love to Mena, enjoy the rest of the journey home, keep us posted pics welcome any size lol don't worry bout Terry
    Be Lucky
    Marc Sam n Maxwell

    Thanks Marc with a C, emailed Camperserve today for a spot first week May, is Mikki's a good place to stop for there was looking at Armacao de Pera or Pedro's and how the tyres rate compared to here. Plan after that is to move inland for a couple of weeks then meeting friends 21st Lagos so any good spots appreciated.
    Cheers all from a very hot Marrakech

    Same here Dave, had rain this morning but moving back into warm dry weather again, very pleasant. Just met up with Jack and Angie who we met at Pedro's last year. Agreed to meet in bar for Man U game. Watched Arsenal game yesterday, fantastic. West Ham were robbed.
    Mena sends her love to you both.
