    Hi all,

    I was a member a while back when I first bought our motorhome, but have not visited in some time. I am back because we are going on our first-euro road trip this summer. 'We' being my wife, 5 year old daughter and 18 month old son.

    We are heading to portugal, via france and spain, and then back again, over 4 weeks. I will probably start a few threads if i can't find the answers I am looking for, but if you have any random tips then feel free to leave them here.

    cheers,

    tom

    Hi Tom, welcome back, enjoy your travels, you might find its well worth the membership fee if you are going on a European jaunt as read only funsters are only allowed 5 posts why restrict yourself, you might need answers to questions while your away.

    Welcome back.
    I think you said on another thread that you have some sites booked ahead so if I had to make one recommendation, bearing in mind you'll be travelling with youngsters, is for those nights where you don't have a booking, always have a Plan B. It's not a bad idea to have one for the nights you have booked too. Costs nothing and can be a life saver if your chosen destination for the night turns out to be closed/full/flooded/naff/a fairground/boy racers track/or just plain 'orrible.

    Hi.gif Welcome back. Don't know if you have a SatNav but if you do it's worth checking the SatNav route against a tourist map. We've found lots of extra places to see/visit when we do that.
