    Tunnel today, hoped to go to South France, but seems too risky.
    Off to Bavaria instead. Can anyone offer advice? Suggest which part to go to? Know of a good campsite? Thank you ( I don't cope well without a plan, and this has thrown me! )

    Munich and Neuschwanstein castle, you have to see both!
    For Munich, there is a campsite here n48.1747 e11.4469, it is basic, but has all the facilities, you can't book but they always have space. There is a bus right outside to take you into the city (it is outside the LEZ as well).
    For Neuschwanstein there is a Stellplatz here N47.582005 E10.700982 the castle has a car park which accommodates motorhomes located here n47.557910 e10.740505
    Hope this helps :D

    No, a bog standard motorhome. I suppose that's the beauty of motorhoming....it offers flexibility.

    Yes, very true. We cross 28th June and will turn left instead of right. (y)

    Agreed on everything @DanielFord says above, plus this Munich campsite has excellent bike access alongside the River Isar into the city centre, and bus to nearest metro station from the campsite entrance.

    Just to add, no Munich trip is complete without a visit to the Hofbrauhaus, where you can have a beer and feed and carve your name into the table :D (you have to go there to understand)

    I have the same sort of dilemma - we were planning to head towards Biarritz but Mrs Colpot thinks it would be irresponsible to do this with the current uncertaintly - so I thought plan B would be to give the Moselle another go (2 years ago we tried it but it was persistently wet so we went back to France). Now, however Mrs C has decided she doesnt like Germany so not sure what we will end up doing. All I know is that we are booked on the tunnel on Sat morning for a 2 week break and I will have a full tank in Bessie and 500 euros in my pocket. Trying to tempt Mrs C with pictures of the Moselle currently.....

    As I have just said in the strike thread , there's nothing wrong with northern France , motorhomers always seem to look on it as somewhere to get through as quick as possible, but the weather should be ok , and loads of small villages and towns and old war stuff if you are interested, and beachs above and below Calais and you can then just nip into Belgium or Luxembourg if you need fuel, no probs(y):)

    Thanks - but we have done Northern France many a time and were looking to explore further South West for a change.

    Have persuaded Mrs Colpot that we will head South West as intended and see how the situation is and if necessary revisit some of our favourite North bits.

    Maybe subscribe to the Bordatlas web app. Give good description of all sites/stellplatz etc. Or camper contact. How far down you going? Königsee/Bertchesgaden way?

    Thanks to everyone for you replies and suggestions. When we arrived in France we had no problems getting petrol so have decided to stay.
    We are near Florac in the Cevannes national park....hairy roads, but gorgeous spot. Great laid back campsite, fantastic for tough walks.

    Mittenvald is lovely with a stellplaz near town and station. Trains Garmish are cheap and then you can catch the train to highest beer garden in the world -
    Zugspitze. Enjoy.
