    :smiley: hi to everyone
    New to the site and new to Motorhoming
    2015 is the year we are both giving up our jobs bought a motorhome (our little gin Palace) and decided to live our dream. Life is too short to sit wondering.
    We are packing up and travelling down the west coast of France through Spain to Lagos and Southern Spain for the winter. Doing lots of research on sites etc but found this site and its looks great!

    Hello with your forum name I am sure you will fit in very well, you are following in the footsteps of what many on here have done already, ask question can't guarantee the answers but you will get them, enjoy your 2015 and many more to follow. :welc:

    Welcome on board, where in Southern Spain are you headed?

    Or is it a "see what happens" trip?

    To be honest, that is the best way to do it!

    If you don't plan it can't go wrong.:blush:

    Might meet up somewhere as we thought exactly the same 18months ago and are not regretting it for a minute.
    Enjoy, it really is hard not to!
