  1. Whilst none of us are travelling much yet, Archie has been beavering away updating his information about sites. This is even harder at the moment because no one is 'in the field' keeping him updated about closures, opening hours etc. A new update or Archies Camping is available for those planning to head off as soon as we are allowed - so get prepared and download the latest version here: Archies Camping Update For those not familiar with 'Archies' its a website with POI's of over 32,000 campsites, throughout Europe, on a variety of formats for almost all SatNavs, which
  2. 16 Departements in France are going into a new month long lockdown starting midnight on Friday. This includes most of the North East corner of France, and the Alpes Maritimes in the South. I haven't got details of the lockdown details, but it's not as strict as the ones currently applying in this country.

  5. A new update of Archies Camping is available from 01/03/2020. For those not familiar with Archies Camping, it is a website from which you can download (free) a file of POI's for more than 34,000 campsites throughout Britain and Europe. Formats are available for almost all types of SatNav. Additionally there is an App available for smartphones, for a small fee, accessed through the website, but with this you can use it off-line and get free lifetime updates. Download the files or the App here: Archies Camping I know we're not currently travelling, but Archie has been work

  7. That's certainly not the case in the village where we have a little house, or the campsite where we store our caravan. We have recently had emails from friends in our village saying they can't wait to see us again, and from the campsite saying that they hope we will be back as soon as we are able to travel. I think some of the the UK newspapers like to stir up discontent and anti-European feeling and do this by suggesting that there is anti-British feeling in Europe.
  8. We are coming on the first day that we are allowed out of this country and into France. We managed to get over on the 12th July last year (2020) and stayed until the 26th October. Both our sons were able to come and stay in our village, with their families, They kept to all current travel guidance application on their dates of travel. We were all safe, we didn't mix with others outside our three households, none of us caught Covid or passed it on to anyone else, and we all managed to get insurance cover. They got back just before they were required to quarantine, and we stayed on. Unfor
  9. No! That's the whole point. If you did 90 days in Spain, until 31st December, you wouldn't be able to go back until 1st April. It isn't a year divided in half, with each half being a separate 180 days.
  10. It's just the opposite. The EU have a 90 day limit in 180 for all 'Third Country Nations' which is what we now are, post-Brexit. The UK allows EU nations to spend up to 180 days in any 365. Same number of days, but very different results in terms of ability to have longer stays, because of the way they are calculated.
  11. You can't do this on the Government site. If you have one it's still valid, if you haven't then you'll have to wait until the new 'replacement' card becomes available to apllications.
  12. You can, and people are doing. People on a Facebook group arrived in Spain at San Sebastian, and are now down on the south coast. Whether you SHOULD is a very different matter.
  13. Yes, we have friends who have had to 'overstay' because they couldn't get back, and apparently they were told by the campsite owner that if anyone became ill with Covid then bills would be covered.
  14. Good news that the EHIC is going to be replaced with an alternative card providing the same benefits; See here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/agreements-reached-between-the-united-kingdom-of-great-britain-and-northern-ireland-and-the-european-union/summary-explainer?fbclid=IwAR1U-ee2Kxq65rV537isGpnQncbB2bkZa8B6Uuaxzw-HMb-xERS990IuoOc#trade-and-cooperation-agreement-overview Scroll down and this is the information in Part 2, section 4.4 onwards: 4.4 Heading Four - Social Security Coordination and Visas for Short-term Visits Title I - Social Security
  15. Some good news in our weekend paper, for those planning a holiday in Andalucia next year. The Andalucia.org advert states that for the whole of 2021 they will provide free Covid travel insurance for anyone staying in tourist accommodation. Hopefully this will include campsites.
