    :wink:After almost a month on the continent we have a question.....where were you all? Not one GB Motorhome or caravan encountered on the entire trip.....not one GB HGV either. So now we are wondering....is this site a work of fiction? Are you all really armchair travellers and not Motorhome owners at all? Met a Swede in Sczcecin, who travels there a lot. He's never met anyone from GB in Poland at all. So just asking....

    Most of Europe take their holidays in July up to mid August. English and Welsh schools have just broken up. So most Mhomers will not go to Europe in July/August because it is more expensive and hot or if tied to school holidays will be flooding into Europe from now.

    Last year we bumped in to loads of people from the UK but this year, hardly any. We put it down to the fact we were travelling northern europe.

    Not many UK registered trucks over the water these days, too much cheap competition from somewhere!!

    We've been away over ten weeks, probably seen less than a dozen UK MHs. It would be different if we went to the popular bits of Spain I think but compared to the Dutch, German and Belgians the Brits don't seem to get out much!

    I'm quite happy to not see any other Brits when touring Europe - I go there to get away from them :)
