    Hi you two, we will be down there tonight, and on the 8.00 DFDS ferry in the morning.:thumb:
    Not seen anything about not be allowed to park there, we will be heading to Germany. :BigGrin: Bob.

    Dover carpark overnight

    I'm also going there tonight and I always stay overnight in the carpark on Maison Dieu Road. N51.22930 E1.39531 You can legally park overnight free of charge after 6pm as long as you leave by 9am the following day. At the most it's a 10 minute drive to the carferry. It's at the back of a Police Station and the carpark is also used by the Council's traffic wardens. There is CCTV also. I've always felt safe there and it's an easy walk to various takeaway shops if you're feeling peckish.

    Ooooh - we'll be there on Tuesday night and off to Germany on Wednesday morning. Where abouts are you going? We are heading for Bavaria, then into Austria and sailing home on 5 October. I hope we see you somewhere en route. :BigGrin:

    The Mosel's lovely, especially at this time of year with the wine festivals and so on. Cochem is really nice and they have great ice cream. Just don't pick an apple from what looks like a wild tree. They all belong to someone apparently. We were there a couple of years ago. :BigGrin:

    OH no - I'm green with envy. Just been out to the van on the pretence of looking for something but I actually just sat there and then opened one or two cupboards. So peaceful. :BigGrin:

    Parking a large MH with car on Marine Parade

    Some advice please from those who have been to Marine Parade / Waterloo Crescent in Dover:

    Will I be able to turn around a 30 foot long Mercedes RS Motorhome with Fiat 500 attached on an A Frame?? :Eeek: It does not reverse well so turning circle area is what I need to know.

    Going soon so quick replies appreciated.......:thumb:

    Stiegkeller is a nice place to eat in Salzburg - views of city too which is nice. Food and drink are wonderful. I had a Goulash there as it was wet and cold when I was there - melted in your mouth!

    If you head towards the castle, in Denny kluge (there is a little boy standing on a globe in the square) take the right fork up the hill (past Stiegkeller brewery) and it is up the hill on the right. Shuts early though, when I was there - they locked up at 9pm!:Eeek:

    There is also lots of history around the city - tours are quite interesting too with Mozarts home etc.

    Take the opportunity - you will be near a big car park, late at night with not much around....nothing better to do! Go an practice for half an hour or so.:thumb:

    Take a wrong turn on a foreign road and you will be glad you did practice.

    You can also park at the port in France for free. They allow 14hrs, wether you're coming or going, and it feels safe because the ticket office is open all the time so there are staff around. We use the ticket office parking in both directions. Hope you have a great trip. Ed
