    i can live in my van in spain for the winter - oct to april - pretty cheaply i budget for max 50 euros per week for everything - food, diesel, dog food, beer, tobacco and cant think o anything else i need to exist! i dont go on sites so dont hav to waste my money just to park and plug in. i beach hop along the coast, iv never been moved on by police there and i love it.

    :Cool: That's pretty good tay. We used to average around 65 Euros when in our old Coachmen. Now we are temporarily stuck on a camp site. Sure miss Wild Camping and moving around when we feel like it. Are you North or South of Benidorm? :winky:

    Hi,

    Why would anyone want to live on 50 ?? euro a week, I certainly wouldn't as you can't take it with you ?

    I add another 63 euros for my campsite. Can't full time until next year when I get my state pension. Just save up all my holidays for one long trip.

    i guess that some people just come and go, change direction or move on with their lives in a totally different way, or maybe they've died..
    makes me feel a little sad inside, don't know why having never met them, but it is a great big 'family' here on this forum, maybe that's why the sad feeling i have..
    sorry, just thinking aloud and rambling on.......
