    If going to Spain

    Required by law in Spain

    Reflective jackets for anybody who may vacate vehicle onto roadway

    First Aid Kit

    If used for driving...spare specs

    Replacement light bulbs

    Proof of current insurance

    If cycle rack (loaded) exceeds 10% of vehicle length, square/striped warning board.

    Probably other stuff which slips my mind right now.

    Don't let him lead you astray, we know what a sheltered life you've lead.

    For relaxation times (if you enjoy reading) as many books as you can carry.

    Have a great time John.

    in which case take plenty of cheap pens, ( they call them stylo ) pencils and paper for the Moroccan kids .. these are like gold dust to them.. give em one and your their friend for life.. and they won't throw stones at your van .. :Laughing: Also any old clothes, jeans etc ...

    much better than throwing sweets out of the window, I've seen some daft vanners do this and the kids scrambling all over the road dodging traffic :Doh:

    Not that big a deal. Only glitch is the frontier post, after that as easy as Europe and so similar in many ways, like French shop names, supermarkets, booze.

    I'd go back gladly, 'er indoors won't. Don't know why.

    Don't see much of Ray in here any more, he must have enough business.

    If you are lucky, fuel in Cueta will still be under half mainland price.
