Haven't been on here for a while, the van has taken 4 months longer than we thought it would and it was torture to read all the lovely posts. Headlights are now sighted from the proverbial mountain tunnel so muchos excitement here now. We have 3 weeks off work from 31st August and currently have a plan A and B. A is eurotunnel, then down to Normandy, Brittany, coast and inland, ending up on eurotunnel again. B is ferry to Cherbourg or Caen, then work our way around, ending up on eurotunnel. Aiming to visit pretty coastal, rural towns and villages and try and get some canoeing in on the way around. Aires are our goal of choice as the van and conversion have taken a lot of money this year. I realise it's all subjective, however, any 'must not miss' place suggestions very welcome. Have a very rough sketch of places we want to see and no return booked is the plan. If we come across a lovely camp site with pool then we'd treat ourselves. Tried to get the ASCI book/card but sold out.
