  1. We use the Post Office prepaid cards,there is a €1.50 fee for atm use but not on purchases. We used to use our bank debit cards in atm but the fees are too high. We use a credit card for card filling stations and autoroute tolls. There are plenty of cards with no overseas charges.
  2. Site filled up a bit today,peaceful time in pool over kids splashing about! Nice to see them having fun in fresh air not glued to mobile phones etc!
  3. We are in France pretty quiet,but the kids finish today. Our ACSI does too, we will be heading north on Monday probably have a week in Normandy. Home before most English schools finish! Back over mid August when ACSII is on! Now retired not paying high prices to share campsites with hordes of kids! Yes I am a grumpy old fart! No kids no mortgage 3 pensions and loads of travel! After 20 years teaching in college, school holidays are avoided if possible!!
  4. Thanksfor the warning. We came south on it on Saturday, one bit of roadworks but ok. We are back in July couple ofnights at Black Horse Farm then home. Think we will use the A2.
  5. We are at Les Nobis in Montreuil Bellay, not full. Asked for two weeks but the very nice owner said no problem if we want to stay a bit longer. Quite a few brits on site. Weather changeable but looks same for most of France. Its been showery today but warm. We come back mid July when k7ds start to appear
  6. We are thinking of visiting Holland and our old RAFG haunts later in the year. Might try the site at Bracht. We found a couple of sites in ACSI book near to Roermond and Venlo too. Fond memories of going to Roermond and Monchengladbach from my tour at Wildenrath. Venlo and Nijmegen favourites from Laarbruch! We could fly into Laarbruch as was, Weeze airport now! Might pop to Rheindahlen see what is left!
  7. We are in Loire region at Montreuil Bellay, site not full, but fairly busy. Forecast good but some thunderstorms forecast later this week and showers next week. It was sprinkling wth rain earlier this morning but supposedly 30 later. Sky has cleared now. It will do what it does!
  8. La Bien Assise takes ACSI in low season.
  9. Second that, did 8 Harrier deployments to that lovely place! 2 weeks camping per deplyment with very noisy jets for company!
  10. Meteo France shows better weather soon, we are over Sunday probably going to Ardeche or Auvergne. Horrible in Shropshire until Monday but we are stopping at Folkestone Saturday south has better outlook!
  11. Us too, useful kit. Wife bought them.
  12. We had a Pageant a while ago, there was an inline filter in the cold feed. You have to remember to drain the water out of them when you leave it for winter.
  13. Why do you need 8 bikes? Unless you have a cycle team!
  14. You can get car filler with fibreglass strands in. Its tough stuff but sands well. You may be able to get some touch up paint to match. Have a look online.
