    You sometimes have to rough it in planes and hotels to appreciate the comfort and freedom of your motorhome. ::bigsmile::roflmto:

    Let us all know how awful it was when you get back. With pictures::bigsmile::winky:

    No plan, No destination, No decisions.....Freedom of the Motorhome!:winky:

    Or go for the package, crammed into a plane, given ping 'food' (I use that term loosely)...but not too much, just enough to keep you alive for a couple of hours. Then arrive, get on a bus, whilst some lad who thinks he is funny, talks a load of poop until to get to your hotel, where you get a bed with some bloke that sounds like arnold swarzenegger laughing at the poolside bar all night making sure you never sleep.

    The next day, you get shown around the attractions by some guide with a file and a cattleprod, go back top the hotel, eat more 'food' and repeat for 12 days...

    I know what I would be doing!:thumb:

    I am sure that you can find people on the forum that are willing to drive you wherever you want to go in the motorhome, if you do not want to drive yourself :ROFLMAO::thumb:

    Just remember the Ash Cloud.

    You could spend your time sitting in the airport if it comes back. At least in the van you will get there:ROFLMAO:

    I hate Airports, waiting when delayed, getting to the Airport, more cost, food in airport lounge a rip off, cramped seating on plane, sorry but I know which way i would rather travel :Sad:

    We've stayed in a chalet at Sanguli. There are two adjacent sites which are joined, so it is very big. The camping area that was on the site which we were on was right at the back and was devoid of grass. This was 9 years ago so things could have changed. There is a train station near to the entrance to the site which is convenient if you want to go into Barcelona. Plenty of places to eat in the town.

    Hi.

    We have been down to Spain for the last two years for about three to four weeks ,but it is a long haul for such a short time, difficult decision.
