I'm a newbie bought our first motorhome 7months ago and love it
Arrived in Calais Wednesday eve, to find the many Calais aire by the dock full as the one by the marina was occupied by a fair.
Many of the spots were taken up by caravans that belonged to travellers who were heading to a wedding in Germany,
I'm the morning the attendant came to collect the money. They told him to f**k off.
Attendant called the police who promptly arrived and removed them with drawn firearms.
Great start to our journey,

I remember seeing a protest in Germany when someone parked their vw beetle to block a road. The German riot police arrived by helicopter, marched over to the car and picked it up and threw it into the ditch. If that had happened in the UK they would still be having public enquiries 10 years later.
