  1. Certainly is Allan!! And the trip up on the funicular train is a wonderful way to arrive at City Alta, which is labyrinth of small streets with an array of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The airport is very much underwhelming too! We went to collect our daughter and parked on the top floor which was open and actually waved to our daughter as she descended the plane steps, and shouted her with her doing the same in return. Not sure this parking or security is the same now. But it is definitely worth a short city break.
  2. A little delay in responding!! Yes The Bergamo!! We’ve camped at Lake Iseo and had day trips to Bergamo and loved it. A good recommendation from a friend. We’ve even flown out and had an autumn city break there too. Fab place. Bergamo Hope you’re feeling much better now Russ.
  3. Good morning, Thanks for replies and link. I’ve just looked at this which is full of useful information with fabulous photos. Looking forward to the visit now! Bergamo
  4. We are off to Saint Valerie sur Somme in February but not with the van. We’ve visited briefly before en route to Normandy hence us making another visit as we liked the area. We haven’t visited Crotoy but it sounds like it’s a place to visit. Does the train go from Saint Valerie to Crotoy and do you know if it runs so early in the year? Any other recommendations of where to visit in this area would be welcome. Beegamo

  6. I’ve really enjoyed following your posts and blog in Italy so a New Year in Italy has now got me thinking!!! And as you say 15 degrees is definitely a plus. Happy New Year Russ. Bergamo
  7. A good and interesting read as usual with wonderful photos. Love reading your blog. Have a lovely time and Merry Christmas. Bergamo
  8. Whilst in Norfolk visit Blickling Hall just as it is going dark; the Hall has their grounds lit. It is stunning to walk around these grounds with exceptional lighting and add to that the picturesque sunset this evening, it was a perfect early evening stroll - a photographer’s paradise! There was even an opportunity for a mulled wine whilst looking towards an exceptional view. Definitely worth a trip out.
  9. In France during the summer we needed one to pump the caravan tyres up a little. The Dutch chap next door came with his which was a Black and Decker one. Superb! And far better than the one brought to us by a British chap which was a Michelin one.
  10. Wishing you well Jaydug and hope you eventually get on your journey to Spain albeit a little late. I love reading your blog and am sure we’ll all be reading this year’s chapters soon. Bergamo
  11. Or purchase those microfibre towels which are lightweight, ultra absorbent and take no time at all to dry. A good option if not away in the height of summer.
  12. We love listening to the radio and catching up with news with a cup of tea in the mornings whilst away in the south of France and love the BBC sounds app. Volume from the iPad is absolutely fine too but never have this loud as to impinge on others. Don’t have a tv at all but then in the summer months we actually don’t spend time sitting in the van. Many Germans who arrived in the south of France in September had a TV set up so it was positioned through a window facing outwards so they could watch it from the outside of the van sitting in the sun! Hmm! Not my cup of tea at all!!
  13. Provence. Showers but not heavy rain.
  14. Thanks Moorgate and Val. We were actually in Nice last night and so en route back we did have a look at some places so your recommendations were timely indeed. We did like the area of Bormes les Mimosa and Le Lavandou as well and which we are investigating. It is a really pretty coastline but as earlier showed us it’s very very busy in August with lots of traffic but we intend to go there in September so am sure will be a different place , as many places are in the south when the schools go back and everyone returns to work!
  15. We are currently in Provence but want to visit further along the coast towards St Tropez, Port Grimaud, Nice eventually towards Menton but this is for September when the rush of summer is subsiding. We would prefer not to be on the big sites on the coast as happy to travel down and visit for the day. We have the ASCI book now but would appreciate anyone who has visited any sites in these areas in September and could recommend. Caravan is a two berth, we wouldn’t mind a site with small bar and restaurant. We’ve looked at Camping La Bergerie as accessible easily to Nice and have just found Camping Cros de Mouton which seems pleasant. Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated. Bergamo
