    Hi Everyone

    We are not really bothered about TV or sport but I would think that as internet has progressed that would be the way to go, from what we see Britain has the worst system in Europe, we spend quite a bit of time in Portugal and their phone/internet is FAR better than what we have in UK. I know you...

    We find that we have got used to using a lot of leccy, usually use what is available according to the sun, but in winter when the sun is very low and less hours on duty we use the little honda to top up when using the washing machine etc, if at all possible set you panels up so that you can tilt...

    Size limit for full time in Europe

    It is very difficult to register a van without an address?? I don't think they would accept a Canadian address??? Do you have an address in UK/Europe that you can use?? We registered a truck on export plates in US but used a relative's address in Texas --- then re-registerd it in Alaska at a...

    I translate to law to be------ if you stay in any place for more than 28? days LEGALLY you need planning permission--------and pay council tax-------this would never happen in a street parking place!!! However, if you keep a VERY low profile it is unlikely that anyone would bother you, the...
