    Hello everyone

    I tried looking on line for Vicarious Books but their website seems to be unavailable
    does anyone know what is happening.

    And where can we now get Motorhome books from ?

    thank you Sooze

    Looks like they may have moved their website to a new server but url is pointing to the old one (may be complete rubbish but some of the errors I get say not on this server)

    Hi

    I did an on line order with them yesterday and it worked fine. I was also talking with them re some updates to the aires book on Thursday. I have just tried the web site and it is down, it should just be a short term thing.

    Thanks everyone

    I just had a look and Vicarious Books seems to be back online again phew !!!!!!!!!!!

    They must have been updating their website or something !

    It really is the only place to get the Aires books, which we find so useful when travelling to France.

    We have just come back from Northern Spain - the Aire at the Elephant park is Brilliant.

    We stayed at Cabarceno (the Elephant Aire - No.15 in the new Spanish Aires book) for two nights a couple of years ago. It was indeed brilliant and free and a great find as we had originally been heading for Liganes which was temporarily closed due to some festival and which we had great difficulty leaving as it was choked up with traffic.

    The safari park itself is expensive to go into but you can walk all around the perimeter of a large part of the elephant area without going in. When we were there, there was a very small baby elephant and I was able to get some fantastic photographs of it and adult elephants: the setting is naturalistic and with its deep red soil, provides a backdrop very reminiscent of Africa. In the evening, the trees around the lake which the aire abuts were full of egrets.

    We also had an excellent regional meal including caldo de montana, in one of the restaurants in the village/small town.

    We did have difficulty finding it though as whatever we put in the satnav (from the old book) took us to the other end of the safari park which is quite a few kilometres from Cabarceno.
