    Hi there everyone!!

    we joined last week, so let me introduce ourselves!

    mike and julia from bridlington!
    both retired teachers and 62yrs old.

    had a swift sundanced 590rs for 3 years.

    long trips to europe:
    3 months spain early 2007- a learning curve-used caravan club recommended sites, mainly until we found a lovely site at torre del mar near nerja.

    on return we subscribed to " camping cheque" and ACSI schemes and have dumped caravan club books for our european trips!

    8 weeks summer 2007 touring northern italy. best site for us was camping weekend, lake garda, near salo, and bella italia at peschiera.

    6 weeks spain again early 2008.

    10 weeks late spring early summer 2008--long trip to croatia and montenegro. best stops were rovinj, camp kate at dubrovnik, and wild camping round kotor fjord montenegro. we can back on the ferry from dubrovnik to rijeka-brilliant.

    back to croatia again spring early summer 2009--9 weeks this time, mainly istria and rab and krk islands, best site camp olive at rabac. we found probably the best camp site we have ever stayed on during our return- stayed a week-this is at innsbruk,at natereresse, ( 5 star camping cheque site!)

    6 weeks october and november 2009--- spain again, the valencia region, stayed on wonderful "eurocampings" at oliva ( MUCH better than Kiko Park!!!) almost empty!, then moved to Javea--- only a handful on this site, then to calpe-- a new and crowded site.

    spring early summer 2010 we have just come back from 7 weeks in tuscany, lake como and interlaken--brilliant cultural trip. Europe at the moment is SATURATED from belgium downwards!!!!!

    off to spain again in the autumn.

    In between these trips we have had mid week breaks in the UK as well-- best was to north norfolk!

    we put the van to bed in november for 3 months, and try to get fly winter sun break in january---coming january 2011 we are hoping to go back to thailand for3 weeks!

    yes, we really enjoy our travels!!!!

    where staying there, right on beach and could travel around on the cheap bus transport?
    So they said
