Ever since Mother was a lad.
The a50 M1 M25 m.20 is the worst part but from where we live you have to do so much of it to get anywhere interesting in UK anyway.
Indeed. I use motorways only as a last resort and I do sympathise with those who have a long drive to get to a Channel port.
I suspect that on some occasions I've arrived home from the Newhaven ferry before the last vehicle has left the port.

I can't for the life of me see why we don't eat horses or even dogs, why throw good meat away when people are starving.
I assume you mean elsewhere as you can't be starving in the Uk if you have a phone, smoke,drink, or sky.

Lots but slow learner.
To add to my post above the bloke we spoke to has been coming here for years on his trips to Spain. He say CCP are only the latest owner of this aire. He remembers at least two other operators but when he first came here it was free.

Good place anyway, the Lac de Saint Perdoux is yards away and lunch minutes away. I echo chaser 's comment. France is worth visiting.

Just put Lac de Saint Perdoux in google maps, it dosn't recognise it. Would be grateful if you have a bit more info as we will be passing nr Limoges. Ta

Hate using the van in the UK we to only live 20 miles from Newhaven.
We re doing the Hereford rally, already dreading driving there, plan to have two stops on route. A wild night at Stonehenge & a night at Quackers.

Horse meat is very popular in Slovenia, Hot Horse is a burger chain in Llubjana. I can remaember eating horse meat when I stayed with my French penfriend in the 70’s , her Dad was a butcher but didn’t seve it. You had to get it from specialist boucheries chevalines in those days. They had to have a special licence.

This link should take you to it. One of the best located aires of this trip for gentle walking etc. Owls are the only nightlife. :)

Do you think other vans are trying to tell us something, as they all go past these places beside us and park up the other end against the sewerage works.

Would be happy about that, ideal having nobody 2ft from your door😁
Not worried about it, it just seems strange as this end is just as good and closer to walk to the village and that end is where all the emptying and bins are plus a sewerage works that smells and noisy all the time :unsure:

You know what mate this trip has brought it all back, and you forget over two years of not coming what it is like over here, as long as this old van keeps running I don't think we are at the end yet.
For Anyone who was feeling the same, all I can say is get over here, or even people who are thinking of coming for the first time just get here before it all changes.
Didn't miss in 2020 and 2021..On our way again a week Tues.BUSBY.
