Fred and Rose West?On our way north from the Med we made our usual stopover at Caceres .
We got talking to a couple , I have forgotten their names and had a meal with them that evening. They had a property in France and said that we were welcome to visit.
Unfortunately never had the opportunity to take them on it.
Who?A few years ago now we were not pitched but parked up waiting for a ferry when a large coach pulled up next to us. Out gets Lemmy Kilmister and Motörhead for a stretch. We got chatting and they were in the middle of a big European tour.
I was most impressed indeed. I said to my missus that was Lemmy, she said never heard of him..philistine.
I was idling on the quay at La Rochelle when a blonde came past accompanied by a couple of minders and photographers. When my Aussie DIL came out twenty minutes later from dragging my son around the adjacent clothes shop I was telling her about the flouncy painted tart who'd gone posing past when a lady interrupted and said it was Kylie Minogue. My DIL was distraught at missing her, berated me for not calling her out of the shop and nearly had the vapours. We went for a calming coffee and she put on Faecesbook that she had 'nearly seen Kylie Minogue'.I said to my missus that was Lemmy, she said never heard of him..philistine.
Maybe, but I didn't have time to see her charisma. I had no idea who she was (still don't, except that she was a pop singer) and only saw her for about 20 seconds. She didn't recognise me either.I think she's classy
About 10years ago while on a site at Lake Garda we got speaking to a couple from Brecon, she was Welsh he was a Londoner both lovely and unassuming. We had a few beers with them over the week, we swapped numbers and have kept in touch with them visiting us up in Scotland the following year then us to Wales.We parked up once next to a lovely Spanish gentleman with whom we struck up a nice friendship during our 2 week stay. He was an excellent cook and treated us to some wonderful traditional Spanish meals as well as teach us how to make some ourselves.
It turned out that this quiet man was an ex-Guardia Civil anti-terrorist (Basque ETA) squaddie, badly wounded in service and retired early as a result. Although he did not go into any detail, it was obvious that he must have been involved in numerous dangerous missions in the Basque country at the height of their troubles.
Thank god I've not yet experienced the delights of British sites!!! This wasn't the kind of friendly social intercourse I had in mind!☺☺☺☺Not sure as I only joined last year and although there's no charge I believe you're expected to buy a meal or at least have a drink or two.

Don't worry Sue, my tongue is lodged very firmly in my cheek! I confess that if I were confronted with a merry band of swappers or doggers, I would giggle, peek through my net curtains and happily let them get on with it, as long as they didn't carry on up against the back of my van!You might need to take some of the posts on here with a pinch of salt.
Agree you meet all sorts of people on sites same as a large group of people anywhere, some places on the apps for finding a night stop over are unfortunately (or not depending on folks preferences) used for all sorts of altenative activities.
