    Been really enjoying exploring MotorhomeFun and finding it packed with useful information, so thought we really ought to introduce ourselves.

    Lived in France for 12 years now and after tugging for most of those decided last year to become even more French and invest in a "camping car". We bought a Burstner and are absolutely loving it :).

    Just to throw a few things into the mix:
    • favourite aire so far: Mortagne (told you we've been doing our homework)
    • favourite place in France, possibly the world: Ile de Ré (know quite a lot of you love it too)
    • Our son told us to be careful because last summer his friend stopped at aire in France and they were gassed and robbed while they slept ;););) (well, no one's mentioned it for a while...)
    • Won't mention Brexit, Calais or the exchange rate..........

    You mad fools, you should have stayed in the shadows, oh well too late now might as well greet you.....

    .......hey hang on, you waited until the Euro was stronger against the pound before joining you dam cheapskates.

    Twelve Johns’ two Pips and a Tom,
    There’s Lesley and Chris and a handful of Griffs,
    An old Mo, two Joys and a Ron.

    We’ve got three or four Smithies, one soggy, one ShiftZZ,
    Two Geos’ three Karls and a Ray,
    I checked with the list and unless I am pissed
    we’ve even got two tame JJ’s. (Jersy Jo)

    We’ve got a Minx and a Sedge, a Debs and a Reg,
    Two Carols and a Frankie as well,
    There’s Scotty and Sam and Jake and Siobhan
    Lets not forget Ash or Mell.

    I forgot about Lynn, Brisey, Scot-Jim
    and Sian and Katy too,
    Amanda and Phil and lets not forget Bill
    Roger, Peter three Pams, more still.

    We’ve got 5th wheelers with Trucks Sack loads of Ducks,
    Irnbru and now even a Cally
    A scouser, a Jock and a Taffy who knocks
    our Nigel whose just trying to be Pallie

    We’ve got Ivy and Ken, Pat and Big Ben,
    Brian, Julian, Grenville and Terry
    Rick, Dick and big Mick, overlooked Nick
    And very nearly Graham and Gerry

    A donkey called Neddy, two Trishs’, a Pauline and June
    One Rangi, five Pauls and a Big Jim who calls
    Bacon Sarnies will be served up soon.

    There’s our quizzer Craig, loads of Daves
    Geri, Trish, Michelle and Betty
    Bertie and Toots just polished their boots
    And now Paul’s done a run he’s all sweaty.

    I’m getting phone calls galore
    Funsters want to read more
    And others who don’t give a damn
    So just for you Terry using Isle of Wight Ferry
    I’m adding your lovely wife Ann.


    I could go on all night but you’d all get uptight
    And ban me under Rule ONE
    Well for you I’ve got news,

    Bienvenue de la Haute Vienne.

    I think we have more than enough France-based Funsters to have our own min-meet, but where?

    Croatia is still nice at this time of the year, or perhaps Sicily or Greece;)

    Bienvenue de la Haute Vienne encore...
