    Hi
    I find myself Motorhoming solo in Spain this winter, so if anyone would like to meet up for a beer, please let me know.
    I am currently just north of the Somport Tunnel, entering Spain in a few hours.
    I look forward to some responses.
    Have fun.

    Things like this make Motorhome fun that extra bit special, makes the world a little bit smaller.

    Hi, if its company you need? we normally have a good bunch her in Totana, the micro Funster group may have moved away by then, but there should be space for a Solo Traveller.

Im a solo traveller, and my first time driving abroad. very nervous hence the ferry crossing to Santander and not Calais. Hoping to make it to the Algarve or anywhere warm along the coast. did you get my number ian?

    I am sure you will be fine. Straight down to the coast. I was thinking if driving round to Portugal. But it is so nice hear I have not gone yet. Quite a few people I have spoken to have just come back from there. I had heard the weather was not good about 4 weeks ago. It seems near Torox has the best weather in Spain. It was 28 degrees here on the 2nd February. Swimming weather. Keep in touch.

    still here. cant go to Santander with dog cabin cause they booked up and taking bookings for march 2017!!! first time traveling with dog, so did not know to book so far in advance, no dog kennels till end of march. le have??? something or other doesn't take dogs. from Portsmouth to cherborough seems april bookings next. that leaves portmouth to caen, or Newhaven to Dieppe, or dover to Calais. First time solo female traveller, so was hoping to miss out as much driving as possible ie france. least driving for me would be to land in caen. anyone travelling this route in the next week or two so I can follow for one day to get driving experience? many thanks

    managed to get a cancellation with dog friendly cabin to Santander leaving on the 2nd. very expensive. apparently, if the normal cabins are not sold 10 days before the ferry leaves, they can rent them out as dog friendly cabins. seems I have a 4 berth outside cabin to myself. expensive but I was really stressing out about driving through france alone. only another 12 hrs to get to lagos. feeling excited now.
