    Hi everyone!
    This is my first post here.
    My name is Simonne, my husband is Jan. I do the writing on forums, he does the reading.:Wink:
    We live in the Netherlands and we travel with our motorhome for about ten years now.
    The reason I come to this forum is: we love travelling and defenitely want to go to the UK. Also on the list is Scotland, Norway, Turkey, etc.
    I always learn a lot from other peoples experiences.:thumb:
    So we hope to pick your brain from time to time and maybe we can return the favour by answering your questions about motorhome"stuff" in the Netherlands and perhaps other countries.
    Also I come bearing a gift:
    http://bookboon.com/nl/reizen/europa

    Free travel guides to download, although a Dutch website, there are also English travel guides downloadable.

    Well, complaining seems to be an international habit.
    (but aren't we all Europeans nowadays:Doh:?)

    Welcome J&S

    No complaints from Scotland in Europe.
    We have an interesting climate, welcoming wild life (well they want to eat you) and nieghbours who started a myth about us being mean but even they come here on holiday.

    Drop me a PM if visiting Scotland.

    It must be good for you Netherlanders because I see many NL plates when I am in Scotland.

    You have a good opportunity for the north of the UK, you can choose Hull or Rosyth to get here. Personally I would choose Rosyth and then you have all the glory of Scotland by just pointing North. The only thing that can stop it being a truly rewarding experience is the weather, so keep your fingers crossed for that.

    Hi and welcome to the site, you are not alone we have a number of Dutch members, Onderweg and His wife Digigranny (Paul and Ineke) are in the chat room around midnight (your time) most days. They came to England first the first time this year and met a number of us at a motorhome show and meet, (Must have been fine they are still members, hee hee). There are some others as well. Why not time one of your trips to coincide with a show. Carmarthen motorhome show in April 2010 for instance. Come and join us, Paul and Ineke have expressed an interest in coming as well. Click on the link below for more information.

    Hi:welcome: to MH Fun.

    Nice to hear from you. Hope you can make it over here sometime, I am sure you will enjoy it. Have met and spoken to quite a few from the Netherlands in Scotland.

    Aha my Daddy always told me to beware beautiful young ladies bearing gifts :Rofl1:

    Welcome to Motorhome FUN :BigGrin:

    Should you ever think about travel to Eastern Europe then I know a nice Dutch couple who run a camp site in Czechland and we are not far away either.

    I'll leave it to others to tell you about England and Scotland and not to forget Wales either.

    Bye the way, thanks for the gift, it's on my favorites already :Smile:
