    Unless you have specific foods you cannot live without, why carry any more extra food than you need, especially heavy liquids. We usually carry a few tins of meals, in case we should outstay available food. Alcohol is much cheaper overseas, so not worth carrying. Fresh food is best bought when you want it from local stores.
    We carry sun creams, shampoo's and other everyday items. Lidle's, Aldi and other supermarkets carry all of the familiar goods you buy at home. Have a great trip it will be much easier than you can ever imagine.

    It has, as you say been covered before. Assuming you have been away in the MH in the UK then I think you only need to consider the stuff you need which is specific to being outside the UK.

    Gas bottles you can exchange or refill or the correct adaptor to fill a vehicle mounted tank will be needed unless you are only going for a short period.

    Two pin adaptor for the EHU.

    Light weight drip dry clothing if going in the summer.

    Insect repellant - Smidge for me.

    Books, you can never have too many, phrase books, dictionary, guide books.

    Maps - the laminated Michelin atlas is good and the Michelin Zoom maps if you want to look at an area in detail for cycling or walking.

    Campsite and Aires info - Vicarious guide, camper contact app etc.

    Prepaid card such as Caxton or credit like the Halifax Clarity card.

    EHIC card.

    Breakdown and medical insurance.

    Three "feel at home" sim card or similar.

    Then just go! And let us know how you get on.
