|artona||We are considering 6 months in Spain next winter. Probably not with the van though. Long term lets are very cheap in spain and we want Jessica to enroll in a Spanish School for the time.|
I understand where Rita and MrsP and other ladies are coming from as I have a similar problem re going away for the whole of the winter!
I yearn to get away to sunnier climes in our MH in Oct returning to the UK in the spring but when I think about my little grandson and my kids (all adults now) and not seeing them for months, especially over Christmas, I don't think I could handle it! I hate flying, so the option to fly home for a week over the festive period fills me with dread, so that's not a solution I find pacifies me and so another winter passes and we begrudgingly put up with the cold, miserable grey skies!
I know once I reached our chosen destination I would absolutely love it and our travels to Morocco, Italy, Spain and Portugal are trips I have nothing but glorious memories of - but actually making THAT decision to leave my family for the entire winter, is just so difficult for me to make! To be fair, they all tell us to get off and enjoy ourselves but when I look into their eyes, I know as only a mum can, that they are just telling us what they think we want to hear! My hubby could do it and although he would miss them all - he'd cope and it's just ME that is holding us back!!!! I dunno ....... aren't we mum's a bunch of sentimental twerps at times?
Maybe this year??????

I`m not sure if i could handle a crowded campsite,mainly because i am a sociable person,and would become a alcololic .
So to save myself from destruction we will seeking out much more sedate places to relax like a nice tapas bar in the middle of the Spanish countryside "here i go again drinking "
Lady p does not like leaving our five dogs to start with. Two are thirteen and a little bit gerriatric. She is also the main carer for her alzheimers suffering mum.
Over the last few years she has been less inclined to travel, as soon as she sits up front eyes close and sleep sets in. We have been all over europe with the children in the past.
She does enjoy buying things for mh.
She is not bothered about hotels any more. Is it me I sometimes ask myself.
In eight weeks we are going to kukenhoff , she thinks its for a week but really its eleven days.
I will suffer the fall out later.
Things may improve a little later I hope.

You've nothing to lose and I'm sure lots of members would love to meet you both.
Winter away in the sun would be bliss. Warm, sunny, hassle free.
As for Lady p I have trouble getting the old gal out for two weeks.
These winters(tyres) are brilliant, 150yards up a muddy track on sunday, steep uphill all the way, the CL owner said your'e welcome to stay but you'll never get up there.
