Travelling to France & Germany
Ok, typical of us we cannot decide what to do. We’re looking to go away early August for a couple of weeks but have nothing booked. We would be travelling with our 2 daughters aged 20 & 17 and our friends daughter aged 17 also.
Travel Dover Calais via ferry (preferred route) and head towards Germany passing through Belgium (no stop overs here) for the first week and then head over into France for the 2nd week.
We have done this many times in the past, never booked but not sure if us brits would get a welcoming reception under the current circumstances?
We like the freedom of not booking & moving on if not happy with where we have stopped or chase the sun.
Travel down to Hampshire, Dorset & Devon stopping a few nights in each place. Obviously I need to book in this country which totally goes against why I bought a Motorhome, well for me anyway. I know I will find a lot of sites full now so left it very late but hey that’s how we have always gone about it, spontaneous I think you call it.
We don’t mind using the odd select sites pub stop overs but not sure if these could have restrictions.
We have a Burstner A747 5t 7 berth Motorhome so plenty of space and do not mind travelling a few hundred miles a day to get anywhere.
We have been motor-homing all over for 15yrs so plenty of experience but obviously never in the current circumstances so just looking for your opinions.
