Winter on a cramped Spanish campsite is definitely not top of my list either and I cannot think of anything worse!
Spain was the first overseas country we ever visited in our motorhome and during that trip, we once ended up for a night on a campsite near Benidorm and OMG, I am sure most of the UK 'residents' staying there were on the run! lol
We made the most of our trip though and visited many interesting places but to be honest, I did not enjoy stopping on many of the campsites we came across, especially as everyone seemed to be packed in like sardines! We like to wildcamp, but after hearing of so many robberies and attacks from fellow travellers reports, we really did not feel safe wildcamping in secluded or isolated spots like we prefer and usually tend to do!
However, there are still parts of Spain that are absolutely beautiful and virtually unspoilt by modern tourism, so I don't think those who prefer more laid back destinations should completely rule all of Spain out and we quite fancy visiting the Andalusia region of Spain one day. From what I can gather, this part of Spain is supposed to be absolutely beautiful, offering some stunning and quite moorish locations. Many of the towns and villages are described as being the 'real' Spain; full of character and charm and seeped in history! I've also been told a lot of the towns & villages are more like the Spain of yesteryear
and that the Andalusia region of Spain, is a far cry from the tacky coastal resorts often found on a lot of the Costas!
Sounds just what the doctor ordered!!!!

We have a inflatable Sevylor 2 man kayak (called Chuck) who doesn't come out very often, but when he does, he earns his supper!
Ooh I'm so envious TishF! Turkey is a place we dream of visiting in our motorhome but sadly 2 little dogs who we love to bits, prevent us from venturing to those shores - but oh how we yearn to. We have such wondeful memories of package holidays to Turkey and to visit this fantastic country in our motorhome would be a dream come true! :P
Greece however, is another place we long to travel around - and as Greece is part of the pet passport scheme, it is definitely a place we plan to visit either this year or next!
Enjoy your travels.
