    Just pondering over the year that's been and thinking about all the places we have been and all that's happened.We started the New Year with friends watching the New Year 'dook' at Broughty Ferry and since then have been in France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg,Belgium then back to Scotland, a trip up the west coast then back sold the house then Orkney then a wedding in Surrey then back to Scotland to help the youngest with a house move then Devon to consider maybe living there followed by Hampshire with old friends then Derbyshire then Scotland again.Phew! Then Dundee then Edinburgh to look at where to live again!Then out to Malaga (well it does need serious and prolonged consideration) :Rofl1:then back to Dundee and now back in Edinburgh.Portsmouth for Xmas.Edinburgh for New Year.Then what!:RollEyes:
    How could you do all this without a motorhome? Answer: Work for Mr Saatchi!:Laughing:

    WOW. It's not until you stop and think about it you realise quite what you fit in, be interesting to see what other funsters have done

    We do one year in the UK next year Abroad, this year was UK, This year we started off at Easter at Chester meet, we had a great few days at Wrenbury, , then a week at one of our favourite CL's Church Bay Anglesey opposite the Lobster Pot.

    We then had two weeks near Richmond Park in London, enjoyed every minute of it, also had a few days in the Cotswoulds, the. Stratford on Avon,.

    10 great days in the Élan Valley, loved the cycle trail, and the Red Kites.
    A week at Malvern then Southport, and probably quite a bit more I have forgotten, without a motorhome only a fraction would have been possible,.

    Thank you to the OP for jogging my memory and shareing their's. any more memories out there,

    Reading the above posts prompted me to buy a "stocking filler" for SWMBO, the motorhome journal, something to fill out while she is nagivating us into yet another cul-de-sac.
    Since we are newbies I don't have anything else to add to this thread except to say we are very much looking forward to our very first meet at Frodsham next week, this will also be the first entry in the journal.

    We didn't start moving about until the beginning of April this year, having collected our new MoHo mid March. Over to France at the beginning of April where we spent the next 3 months then back home ready for my regular hospital appointment in April. That done with we then found it went a bit base over apex because Pete had a couple of probs and I had an additional one, so we were either sitting round waiting for appts or going to them but we did Norfolk and Lincs then seeing as the weather was so good and we didn't want to go too far away, we went up to Uttoxeter for a few days and met some other people - and then joined another rallying club, and went on several rallies with them from about mid August to late September. Good fun was had.

    Meanwhile I booked the Frodsham rally cos we keep meaning to go on MHF rallies (but have no desire to visit Shows really) and then not booking in time (hate fixing stuff up much in advance!) and finding they are full - and haven't been to Chester for ages so that was that. Done.

    Having had several not too good Xmases the last few years we also decided we ought to go away for Xmas. So that's been booked too and we come back from Chester on the Monday and then go off again on the Thursday for that holiday! That's with yet another rallying Club LOL
