    Hi everyone.
    Newly become Solo Traveler, currently in Benidorm - Raco.
    Looking for ideas/offers, how/where to celebrate the New Year's Eve?

    Any solo ladies interested in meeting/Company/joined traveling, between now and April?

    Thanks Eve.
    Yes I am on, Judgemental. The only reply from the groupe was from Brisey the groupe owner, telling me that the venue that they are going to is sold out.

    Just go out and enjoy where ever you are,! On a personal note and spending many New Years in Spain,if it's a typical Spanish one,take a black sack plus a cheap bottle of cava with you!

    If you don,t want to stay on sites there are enough ,air de services in Spain,Calpe has two, Altea has a few, just outside Beni,there's many more not in the book,.depends what you like.
    Almeramar down at the marina,is very nice Vera,has a good one,St Pola again harbour,I tend to keep away from large places,depends what you like.
    I am in Portugal,on the Algarve,lots of service places,plus parking places,I have been out nearly 3 months,more solo,s now than earlier.
    Think you will find solo,s tend to wild camp more?.as campsites tend to be couples and stay in one place for months!
    Everyone is different !
    Hope it's some help ! Ask anyone you meet about places,plus explore yourself,get off the big roads,much nicer.

    Don't forget us in Totana if you like walking or cycling or just chatting and chilling. Not far from the motorway when you're heading towards Almeria.

    If you put in the search engine camper contact ,it's an excellent version of stops and sites,cost nothing to down load,so you can see what's available around you,if you pay for it think £4.99, then it will also give you directions
    Enjoy the new year.

    We live next door but we will be in Portugal for 3 weeks from 21 Dec. Will then be back for a few weeks. The camperstop will be open and should have many people there to socialise with!
