    Hi to you all
    I retire in just 3 glorious weeks from now and we bought our very first motorhome a few months ago in anticipation of being able to spend a lot of long leisurely holidays in Europe slowly sampling good food, good wines and hopefully good company.
    Although we are new to it all I have been a fan of this great site for a few months now and have found the advice invaluable - hope to spend many more years taking part in your site.
