    Hi all
    new to this forum although a member of a couple of others.
    We have been motorhoming for nearly ten years and currently own an Autocruise Starspirit which we love. We enjoy touring and rallying and are members of two owners clubs. We have been married over thirty years have two grown-up sons one of whom is married to a lovely Polish girl and they have given us a beautiful nearly three year old grand-daughter called Lenka.
    We both retired last April and are planning a six week european tour in mid May
    taking in France Germany Austria Garda Venice Lake Bled through Slovakia and over the Tatras to Poland for a return visit to Krakow which we love. From there we return into Germany via Dresden and Berlin and then home. Quite a trip!!!
    We will be accompanied by two other couples all recently retired and all related,
    one couple in a Hymer the other couple in a caravan. We all are very excited and a little nervous about the trip. Anyway I will shut up now.
    mike b drifting along

    hi brisey and carol thanks for the welcome. We have toured quite extensively in both the uk and europe and particularly enjoy Germany. We would be only too happy to pass on the benefit of our varied experience and I will certainly be asking for advice and help on the forum.

    Hi and welcome!!

    Sounds like a really fantastic trip, look forward to hearing about your escapades over the coming year!:thumb:

    I like the idea that you have others travelling along with you, it's always good to have a bit of moral support:thumb:

    They're a very knowledgeable lot on here!!
