    Hiya

    We have just retired and plan to take off to Europe in our new (to us) Bessecar on a Fiat Ducato.

    We have had a couple of shakedown cruises in the UK and we caravanned for several years a while back, but still...this is a whole new adventure, especially with POI downloads for our TomTom.

    I think we are reasonably well prepared for our trek, but I am sure we will find we have forgotten a few things. Ca va.

    I am looking forward to getting to know you...if I can get online often enough!!

    Good plan, make it so.

    Suggest you head south at this time of year.

    Many of us do the same, we haven't spent a winter in the UK since 2004. :thumb:

    Now that makes us new at it compared to others on here, but we all start somewhere.

    Do it, I'm sure you wont regret it. :Cool:

    And you are just in time for the sale on subs, now only £10 a year.
