    Ok so you have had the MH for a while now or maybe you have just got it.

    Where is the most exotic or unusual place you have been or plan to go too?

    We are currently doing our bucket list and have Lithuania Finland norway and the very east of Turkey or as far as we can cross in to turkey.

    No plans for Spain other than on the way to casablanca,

    hi .you can get a ferry from sete in france to morocco if you really must miss spain out.
    not sure why you want to go to casa .very busy . nice mosque ,lots of industry. mind its nice on the sea front for a bit. would have thought inland for you then you could go skiing .or are you thinking of taking up surfing as well ha ha .
    so we might see you in maroc soon .

    Thank's Alan,
    These were the sort of answers that I was hoping to glean.

    Yes I can surf, but prefer body boarding to be honest, which is what I was thinking of. But tbh, I get as much a kick from watching/photographing real surfers out in the wash than I do surfing myself these days (My swimming's bad).

    We will scrub the ferry and drive through Spain. As Ihave bad memories of Sete, we went on honey moon there :Rofl1:

    Have you been across in to Finland? or USSR?

    hi. no never been further than north germany and denmark. never had the urge or interest to go.
    i use wooden belly board now cornish style surfing. cant stand up very good these days so on a board its impossible .
    i would say go across cantarbria and asturia then down galecia,and portugal coast .its great . the med is fine in winter but the other way is nicer.
    if you want an interesting drive then down the coast of maroc coming back through the mountains and zig zaging to the desert side is fantastic .guess you have seen enough pics . ha ha .but ask snowy .i,m sure he can help.
    course you could drive to india thats another special trip .
    i find europe a bit sim sim .
    i like uk in summer when we have one. and summer in winter.
    but enjoy your trips thats the main thing . drive safe .

    Went to Cyprus for a couple of months a few years ago when it was easier to get a ferry. Off to Norway 16 July for about 5 weeks. fingers crossed for a bit of good weather

    Helmsley, North Yorkshire this weekend to Duncome Park for a Steam Rally.

    The engine in my avatar will be travelling from its home in Potto by road, under its own steam. You have been warned !!!!!

    Its name is Lightning and it is a showmans engine owned by Prestons of Potto, a large family owned haulage company, and it actually used to work for a living after the 2nd World War when diesel and petrol were hard to get. It kept the Prestons in business so it is very well looked after.

    Yes, we've been to La Tranche, before we had the M/H. V touristy, fantastic beach, if you walk through the pine woods to get from the parking to the beach (which you certainly have to for certain parts of the beach, dunno if it's all of it?) watch out as we both got bitten half to death by summat and all the bites went bad ways, so frankly I've never been exactly eager to rush back.

    Make sure you have a beach brolly though - there's always a breeze and it fools you!

    And do have a look at the Ile de Re at least - if not also the Ile d'Oleron.

    We used to live just down the coast from La Tranche and can thoroughly recommend it. Very busy July and August.

    I suppose Venice is the most distant and exotic location we've driven to in the MH so far. This year the destination is SW France around the Mediterranean coast for most of August, and until retirement we'll probably keep going to sunny locations in the summer months.

    As for the future, after retirement we'd like to see more of N Europe and Scandinavia off season, and Southern Spain and Southern Italy in spring and autumn rather than in summer when the heat gets too silly.

    I've also set my heart on photographing the aurora borealis before I finally turn my toes up, so that'll probably mean a trip to the Hebrides or Northern Norway at some point.

    We are hoping to do this trip in the next year or two also before our daughter stops coming with us. We have just waved goodbye to funsters from Slovenia who have been touring Scotland for 3 weeks and stayed with us for 3 nights so i could take them golfing so all the more reason to visit Slovenia.
