    Well..the situation so far. We have now been in the van for 5 months and have been in rough order to -Orkney,Monifieth,Surrey,Edinburgh,Malaga,Monifieth,Edinburgh,York, Derbyshire,Portsmouth,Surrey,Poole,Derbyshire and now back in Edinburgh.The estimated date for our move into bricks and mortar in Edinburgh is still two months away.We will be going to the Dordogne again in April and so don't want to head down through France to Spain just now in the van.But we don't want to sit out a stormy Jan/Feb in the UK in the van either.Thinking about putting the van into storage and going to either Malaga or Morroco for three weeks or so in a hotel.
    What would other Funsters do?:thumb:

    giving a choice of staying in the UK at the moment with this dreadful weather or going to spain - I would go to spain.

    There are funsters at Zahora and other places, some at albufiera? portugal?

    Have fun whatever you decide

    Morocco or the Canaries would be a good plan.

    Take yourself off on a Caribbean cruise. I am just back from one at the Canaries and the sea was rather choppy, but then if choppy seas wouldn't bother you there's some great deals out there.

    Have fun whatever you choose!

    Glad things are going well.

    May I suggest Crewe? Wonderful at this time of year:thumb:

    Or if not,,

    A cruise sounds nice but then as my parents stay in goa much of the year that must be nice too....


    What about going back to work instead ? :roflmto:

    Germany

    Germany would certainly be a great place to visit in winter, m/h friendly and lots of top class aires (Stellplatz). Only problem is that it is a legal requirement for you to have snow tyres at this time of year.
