    :clap:Heehee we are shipping out on Fri 29th of April Portsmouth Caen. Our very FIRST trip taking our Kathleen abroad! Very excited! Due to family illness we have had to cut our holiday short - down to 2-3 weeks meandering along through Normany(ish) instead of 10-12 weeks whizzing through France, then going Northern Spain, down through Portugal. Into Southern Spain..The Costas...Granada, Barca up through Western France and home...ah well, there's always next year....:clap:

    Had a very good crossing very flat, stayed at camping municiple at arromanches on the first night, good site close to village, had a good look round and keen to visit D day landing beaches and the memorials. We are now at le mont saint michelle, brilliant for cycling, Tweed had his first trip in the doggy trailer, loved it and the locals were very amused by it. Never used a sat nav before so thought it very funny when it went into meltdown at bayeux, unplanned road closures on the route and the alternative route, reverted to paper map and no probs, gave mr sat another chance, then when on dual carriageway we were diverted onto other side due to roadworks sat nav covered his eyes and said thats it dont want to play anymore. Anyway loving our trip, driving very easy and so motorhome friendly. Only issue so far we have lost a wheel trim somewher en route so are keeping our eyes open along the verges.
