Hi Alan yes I did receive your message no I'm a bit of a technephobe it would be great if we could get three or four together for this iv not taken the van to Europe before only the car but free camping or cheap stops is the way for me as I'm retired and will be on a budget. Told myself when I was 19 and in Vigo that I'd be back to visit Portugal one day . It's great to be free of any ties so it doesn't matter how long I'm away .

Let me know if you do decide to go and it would be good if others would join us, I am a member of Brittany ferries and I can put another person on my. Membership, for about I think 70 pounds you would save about 250 pounds also if you book one way you have no ties when you want to return, and it works out the same cost,I would love to go in a group Kind Regards Alan

Hi Kjack ,&Alen Dixon&Mophead&SallyM
What's Portugal like in January.
did you visit mountains or stay to the coast . Also I guess it would be prudent to find out if fellow travellers are compatable ie do you move on regularly or stay in the same place if you like it, are you an explorer or a laid back kind of traveler ?on the campsites iv been to in the UK there seems to be two types one up at the crack of dawn and one still breakfasting at 10.00.
Myself I'm a bit of both depending on my mood so as long as it's not all one way I'll fit in hopefully.

My experience of Portugal is 12 years of being there in the winter time And I feel I know The Algarve fairly well, I've stayed there in hotels and also the hole length of most of this area in a motorhome.

Hi Linda jane I'm new to all of this, can we restart our conversation if you are going near Bristol it may be good to see others in a parking area all together at the same time,

Don't think you did anything wrong , irnbru was just explaining that if you want to get someone's to see your post put a @ in front as. @Alan Dixon it helps them see your post. Good luck with the plans.

Hi ...yes just looked at the thread - and yes still interested... looks as though a few of us might be up for a trip... I'm down to Warwick tomorrow to meet a friend for a few days - anyone live close by? As suggested and if possible it would be a good idea to try and meet up beforehand -- I'm heading to Taunton Sept 11/12th if any good for the Bristol area?

@mophead coffee would have been fine but i'm away to Cornwall then. Would have liked to have met up to talk about going away with you all but have already booked a tour for 3 mths in Jan to Canary Islands. Maybe the following year!!!! But enjoy Taunton.

i dont think many people just form a group to travel with its more you go to a few shows or rallies meet people then find a common interest and then plan a trip. Otherwise you could wind up with people you have little in common with having said that tinder and grindr work for some

Hi Mitzimad, I do agree that it is important for people to meet each other before deciding to commit, I think the Idea is to meet some where before if possible,
