Noisy French Yet Again :(

We are now camping near Milizac on a near deserted campsite, just the odd caravan here and there sometimes visited by the French.

We had a caravan next to us on the pitch we were given. At 9.45pm two cars turned up for 15 minutes and left which we thought rather odd, but then at 3.45AM they returned (3 girls) obviously having been clubbing it. They were anything but quiet, waking us both and without doubt they knew we were not happy.

I am not one to hold a grudge (aye reet) so at 8am I decided to check the water and oil in the van and decided to turn the engine over and give it what would be described as a damn good revving up . That completed I realised the interior of the van needed a good vaccing out, but I like to do that whilst singing along to the radio and for good measure I opened the windows to air the van out. Unbelievably it woke the girls up shame !!

This was Saturday morning so I decided we would move to a quieter area just in case they went out Saturday night.....which they did but luckily we never heard them last night.
I rand the chap from reception at home as he does not work sat or sun and he apologised for the disturbance, wait until I ask him for a nights rebate for the disturbance, I will see him tomorrow (Monday)

If it's one thing I cannot stand is no consideration for other people.

Did you test the horn before moving off as apparently required in some obscure part of the Road Traffic Act which requires the driver to endure that such things as all lights, horn and brakes work before moving off ?

It does not explain how to test the brakes while stationary neither is it apparently legal to use your headlights or horn while not moving but......

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Noisy French (yet again)?

Out of all the different nationalities I have come across the French have to be the quietest and most well behaved. Most of them are in bed by 9:30pm and you can hear a pin drop on most aires. Its another reason I dont use campsites though as you never know what you will get next to you.

Do you not think your actions were a bit petty? Should have gone round with a bottle or two and continued the party.

Pefect response Barry, on a site in Caylus we had a really loud snoring tenter beside us.

Lovely couple who we befriended, and shared lots of after dinner drinks.

RESULT ........ he collapsed into his tent and passed out without a snort all night.

Well lets face it we have all crashed home at 3:30am making a right old racket, kicking over the bins, trying to open the door of the wrong house (van) havent we? hopefully its over quickly.

Biggest thing that annoys me in close proximity to other vans is these people who think its a good idea to wire up their van stereos to the TV / radio etc so what you get outside is a loud booming bass which if course they cant hear.

We don't often use campsites when abroad but we stayed on one once and there was a right old din in the middle of the night.

A woman shouting and screaming, knocking things over, banging her fists on almost every Motorhome on the site.

She woke almost everyone up.

I really must get the wife a torch when she goes to the toilet block after dark .......

Put her on a choke-chain and let her pee next to the MH then she cannot get lost.

Petty !! I am a great believer in "Do unto other as they would do unto you"

I am always considerate to others, If someone is inconsiderate to me I give them their own medicine....never fails.
