    Hooray, ferry booked today:BigGrin:. We are on our way on the 10th, Dover to Calais this time. Our vague plan is to head south, via the Millau bridge to Barcelona for a few days, and then on to Zahora, or somewhere near Gibraltar. This is a new route for us. We live near Plymouth so for the last two years we got the ferry from there to Santander, and headed straight for Portugal. However, Brittany Ferries is so expensive, and this time we are towing a car (on a trailer).

    We may get to Portugal, as we love it there, and want to try the new aire near Guia that has been recommended on here. However, we have to be back for a wedding in early April so who knows. Mind you, I suppose we could fly back for a couple of weeks.
    I am getting very excited now. If anyone has any aires that they recommend on the way, I would love to hear about them. We have also invested in the ACSI book for the first time, so any recommendations for that would be great too. Particularly around Barcelona, or the Costa del Sol area.

    Looking forward to meeting up with fellow funsters on our travels. :Smile::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    We did something similar last winter flying home from Faro.
    We stored our van with Tommy at Camperserve in Loule for euro 1.50/day. http://www.shop.camperserv.com/.
    He has a locked compound next to his workshop and will give you a lift to the airport for Euros 10 although a taxi is only about euros 15 if Tommy's busy.
    His repair charges are also reasonable if your van needs any work doing while you're in the UK.

    Hi Guys
    I did not know he would store the van, but we have used him a couple of times for repair work and found him very good. Were you at chicken run last winter or the one before? We loved it there, However, we have vowed to move around more this time.
    Karen and Paul.

    So we may see you if you get to Zahora before we leave, depending when you plan to arrive here.
