    Ok. I'm giving you all 3 months off to travel.

    Your only proviso is that you have to go in the motorhome and can't take a ferry.

    You have as much cash as you need...

    What will you aim to see?

    Where will you go?

    How many miles will your trip be?


    Fire away....

    I would like to do Scandinavia also then maybe round north and Eastern Europe but its not so much where I'd go its who I'd take. I'd love to do this with my Mum and Dad as I think it would be great to spend 3 months with them with no distractions such as work and other boring stuff. We would probably fall out after the first day :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: but it be worth it.

    Only Three Months

    [HI][/HI]that’s not very helpful! You want a figure you can quote, so here you are: according to Ordnance Survey, the length of the coastline of Great Britain (the main island only) is 11,072.76 miles

    • The length of coastline of England only is about[HI] 5581[/HI] miles (8982 kms), Ignore the Isle of Wight, Lundy and the Scilly Isles
    • Mainland Wales’s coastline is about 1317 miles (2120 kms) and adding the islands of Anglesy, and Holyhead the figure is [HI]1680[/HI] miles (2740 kms)
    • Mainland Scotland measures about [HI]4174 mile[/HI]s (6718 kms) but [HI]ignore [/HI] the islands of Arran, Islay and Jura, Shetland and Orkney, and the Western Isles.
    Total so far 11000miles

    Then Trips add 4000 miles


    Great Glen+ Highlands ( Must include Loch Garten) +Grampians , Lake District, Peak District, West Country+ Malverns, Bala, Stratford on avon .
    Devon & Cornwall (incl Eden Project) New Forest, Kent ,Leeds Castle.


    Ignore Essex (Its boring): Lincs Wolds Yorkshire dales.


    anything else we Fancy really.


    Ignore Europe Been there .

    [HI]
    [STRIKE]15000 miles 90 days about 170miles/da[/STRIKE]y


    No Im taking 6 Months @85/da[/HI]y:thumb:

    Cotswolds and Bath,
