    It's off the cards for us this year sadly....but we've got the Netherlands lined up for August 2022... Finger's crossed.... we'd planned France last year & this but figured if things improve for 2022 and travel is pretty much all good then France will be well occupied by travelling folk from...

    Motorhome satnavs
