    Hello from Gloria

    Hello my name is Gloria but friends call me Glo. I am not new to camping and I have a VW Trident which I love with a passion. My sister and her husband live in Gibraltar and Spain....their Spanish house looks across to N. Africa and it has long been an ambition of mine to drive dow to Cadiz and on to see them. My brother-in-law knows Morocco very well and will make a great escort;they have a motor home. I would welcome advice on a campsite within a 3 mile drive of Santander. Then I would continue the 6/7 hr trip to Algeciras the following day.Any advice would be welcome or even to join others in convoy. I was thinking of making the trip early in April.

    Hello Glo

    Welcome to the forum, glad you made it on here.

    We've not been that way in our van but hopefully others will be able to advise you.

      Hello Glo

      Good luck with your travels, can't advise as our van has not ventured over the channel even!

        Hi Glo,

        That sounds like a wonderful trip to make. I've never been much of a globe trekker (no passport) but the thought of going further afield is kind of attractive now we have the van. Probably never do it though... The idea of going in a convoy is much more reassuring for a home girl like me! I think I should head for the Normandy coast as a first attempt. We got a free ferry ticket when we bought the van but needed to have booked the trip by the end of Feb. In our usual organised fashion, we didn't get it done. Use it or lose it. We lost it

          Hi Glo,(that sounds like a safety vest?)

          Never ventured as far down as Spain in the van , not got past the Dordogne yet. Will have to do it one day.

          Take the plunge you won't regret it. It's nice not to be treated like lepers by the local councils as here, and welcomed by the local people.
          Go, for a long weekend as we are in early April, and suck it and see. You will be back for more I reckon. We are going to Honfleur for 3 nights as many sites are open then. Using ACSI card the prices are 11/13 or 15 Euros a night with shower and electric.(and the diesel is cheaper).
          If you live a long way from the Channel could be a trek to Dover though.

            Oooh! Ouch! Four hours if the traffic is ok, including a stretch of the M25 I think we would have to do it by stopping over somewhere otherwise the travelling would be too much for one day.

            Maybe plan to do it next year (says the Great Procrastinator)

              Same here - have yet to take the plunge (ferry). But then there is so much to see and do here in the UK......... I am planning a few weekend trips for 2011 and totally spoilt for choice!
