What does it all mean?

I've been reading of members recent and current travels, (jealous as hell : ) and wondered if anyone had done some sort of guide to all the more common expressions, signs, tidbits or useful phrases, in the various languages.

What are the differences in Aires Sostas etc

I'm not sure how to explain what I mean really, got the worst headache going on, so basically any useful info on getting over there and doing it.

There are a few guides and downloads on the old site Kev. Here is one to Aires with a link to Stellplatz https://www.motorhomefacts.com/modules.php?name=Aires but basically Aires, Sostas and Stellplatz are different names for the same thing. Some are great, some not so great, some are free some are not. I think there are other guides on the old site for a variety of useful tips for travelling abroad but there really is nothing to it. Much easier than travelling in the UK. Knowing your love for great open spaces and scenery, what are you waiting for?

Chance to actually get away, a van that has proven reliability, moolah.

I think you should get away kev, maybe you are spending too much time in front of the monitor, headaches can be terrible if not sorted,no really I mean it.

Not usually Barry, we seem to manage just using whatever signal we find without, I like tech but I'm not nerdy about it, I have a doodah which will take a SIM card, bought it a while ago , Hughy something or other, never actually used it.

Liz has just bought a Nokia Lumia 550 pile of manure, but she likes windows, it's SIM free, and if she doesn't like it we can return it.

Tuggers has never been abroad in his van. Maybe you could both go off together.
