    Hello funsters
    I've finally subscribed to this fab site packed with info from such a friendly bunch!
    My hubby and I are leaving the rat race given notice on our jobs mine for 13 yrs and hubby's for 37 yrs and just bought our first Motorhome Bolero 722fb and are leaving the UK in our flip flops in search of Warmer climes and going to start living!
    We hope to meet some you along the way for a drink or three! Look out for our yellow smiley sticker in its pride of place!
    Rachel and Neil

    Near Sagunto, north of Valencia, having spent the last 5 days in the Vall de Laguar, inland from Dénia and a fabulous area which we will go back to. More detail in the last couple of pages here. http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/two-go-back-to-spain.106599/

    Worth searching here for folks' accounts of their travels, I find them invaluable for getting ideas on where to go and places to visit.

    And I have two pairs of Crocs, a green pair for outside and some luminous yellow ones for inside the MH!

    Does it matter? the reason it is illegal is because it is potentially dangerous. As newbies the OP may not be aware of that. Mind I am aware that in the OP flip flops was said in jest, and knowing that I added a laugh after my post. My feeble attempt at a laugh after the fact, yes I know comedy is a serious business .
