    Have seen many posts re the 2013 and 2014 expeditions but (maybe I've missed them) haven't seen anything on plans for later this year.
    Curious to know if anyone' s going in that direction.

    For ourselves we prefer Christmas at home and then get away soon after, so it will be at least Jan 2015 for us... Some of the other previous 2013/2014 group like their time in Benidorm for Xmas and new year so assume they will be doing the same thing... No set plans as yet as thing can and do change...

    There should be some of the guys over there and you may get some replies soon.. :thumb:

    Currently considering our plans for next Winter.
    If we go back to Morocco again it will be January as we will spend Christmas at home.
    However after two winters in Morocco we are perhaps ready to do something different.
    Plot up at Benidorm maybe (never done that before). Or maybe back to the Algarve again.
    But the lure of reliable hot sunshine in Morocco is very strong.
    Who knows?
    We don't. Yet!

    We're hoping to do Morocco in Jan for the first time, but not on our own, so we'll just keep posted and see what develops :thumb:

    I am sure that there will be several motorhomes going to Morocco for the winter.

    We hoped to go last year, but what with one thing and another, didnt get there.

    Our plans now have to be that there is no plan, but if we can we will try and get down there this winter God willing.

    I would say that once youre over there, big groups are hard to travel with, because Morocco is busy that time of year, and trying to find places to stay for more than 10 would be logistically hard to do. I know last year once people got the crossing and first few stops out of the way, the naturally splintered into smaller manageable groups.

    We would gladly meet up with people for a couple of days, but we have a different objective to most, but love to socialize too.

    Give it time, you have started the thread, and I am sure people will start to add their thoughts to it, and presto a 2014/2015 Morocco trip is achievable.

    We plan to make the trip this year, unfortunately we had to pull out last year, got as far as Alicante and had to return home, family bereavement. This year we are currently planning to be in Benidorm early October then on to Morocco in January.:thumb:

    We will definitely (Inshallah!) be going, mid-January most likely and would love to go with a group of Funsters again - only this time we will have an idea of what to do and would be quite happy to be one of the "dunitbefore" participants. Agree with Steve, read the threads for info; we think it went perfectly.

    But as Tonka and MrMotorhome will tell you, it's quite a lot of work co-ordinating it all so I'm not offering just yet! Maybe we'll have a natter with some others at one of the upcoming meets; we're happy to pass on our experiences.

    im hoping to spend a bit of time in warmer areas this winter. one of the reasons I joined the forum, to meet people who have been there and done that and would be willing to give advice or even let me tag along until I get street wise to the areas . im going to get to a few meets with that in mind to meet others who want to do or have already done it.
    long way off yet but that's the plan... regards andy :BigGrin:

    We intend to go this winter, probably Jan, so will keep an eye on upcoming threads as this will be our first time in Morocco.
    Currently in Vienna, just getting ready to leave for Lake Bled, Slovenia.
