    Tomorrow is the day we head to France for ( hopefully) five months. Internet will be hit and miss as we tour so we will miss the chatter on here, logging in whenever we can.

    Best wishes to all at MHF.

    PS

    We would like to see at least one Funster during our travels. Not met one yet that has advertised their membership with a Funster sticker. We live in hope.:)(y):france::france:

    Yes.(y) But we have no internet or landline at our base in Burgundy and mobile phone reception is poor there. :mad:We tend to check in via wifi hotspots and mobile phone internet when in a decent area..:)

    @maison We're off to Croatia on Thursday via Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia, but may come back up the eastern side of Italy and across the top and up through France, so may see you in a couple of months time - we always seem to meet Funsters on our travels so will look out for you!

    Have a lovely time! :)

    Oh and @Anthea M is right - I have a little red book I write Funster user names and real names in - it's a lifesaver! (y)

    Managed to get Wifi today at Camping le Bon Temps, near Vienne.

    Heading down to the Sputh of France for a week or so.

    Arrived at our little place in Burgundy last week to find a water leak on the boiler when we turned on the water. Took a day to find parts to "jury rig" the system. Still a little weep from it but turned it off while we are away.

    Tried the Air Con. It tripped out the electrics! Two years ago it cost us 600 euros to fix a fault and then another 600 euros to correct the fault caused by the first repairer who, by then, had gone out of business. Surprise , surprise.:mad:

    This time it will be full replacement. Isn't life wonderful?

    Hence the idea to get away from our "get away".:)

    Will sort things out when we get back from.......wherever!(y)

    Best wishes to all.

    PS. Still haven't seen a MHF sticker but looking out for them.
