    oh i am struggling to concentrate as im so excited. Just need to get through today and a 12 hour shift tomorrow and uni on Monday then we are off :). It will be a trip of firsts!

    This will be the longest trip we have ever taken. It will be our first trip abroad in the motorhome. We will be using the cadac safari chef that we got for xmas for the first time. We have just purchased some gas it bottles so will be the first time for that too. Will finally get to use MH oven and shower for the first time. Think I'm as nervous and excited as i was the day we picked the MH up last August.

    Im sure we will be asking some questions on here as we come across snags on the way.

    we are taking the channel tunnel on tues eve (5th) and staying at le touquet or similar for the first night. Then heading straight for Benidorm overnighting somewhere in the pyrynees, arriving in Benidorm thursday. we will spend 7-10 days there before heading North again. Plan is to call at Biarritz, Dunes du Pilat, Ile de Re, Il de Oleron, La Rochelle, Rochefort en Terre, Coulon, Montagne sur Gironde, Rouen (not in that order!) and anywhere else that takes our fancy before our return crossing on 29th April.

    Sounds as if that will be a lot of driving in 2 days to get to Benidorm. Do you both drive ?
    Cadacs are great. Enjoy your trip , weathers got to be much better than here.

    yes we will both be driving. We have driven to Barcelona without an overnight stop when hubby was doing courier work and i used to go with him so should manage Benidorm by thursday easily enough. Beauty of having a MH though is we will just stop if we cant make it and explore somewhere else for a few hours.

    By this time next week we will have arrived in France, and hopefully will have enjoyed a first class meal at a cordon blue restaurant. Then a two month trip to Italy. Hope everybody has a very good trip as we are envisaging for ours.

    Have a great first trip and we find the journey is part of the holiday! But as you are travelling to Beni you won't meander as much as we do !
    We use our Small Cadac a lot on holiday but remember you aren't supposed to use them on Aires!.
    Bon voyage and keep posting with photos !! And hope you find some sun! And maybe Ianthebuilder!!:cycle::sun:

    Enjoy but don't overdo the driving - better to spend some time in a nice place than think "oooo must get to the next nice place" and spend too much time sitting in the cab trundling along .... been there, done that, got numerous t-shirts!

    thanks for all the replies . The excitement is even higher. We normally travel for maximum of 4 hours, very rarely longer. I hope Mary is not disappointed, she keeps remarking what the temperatures are in Europe. Raining here today so making Friday seem months away.
