in truth just about all of france is too cold in winter.
the warmest is around the loire atlantic .
but even then it can be very cold . in winter there arent that many countries that are warm enough in winter and then you have to be carefull where you are going .
its warm in front of the fire though.and we are in june .
when is summer coming ?
global warming , gassing , me paying for water or a campsite all myths
I agree, as you know, we've spent the past few winters in and around the SE Spain area, although I did feel the weather was not as good last winter as in previous years. I just wondered if any 365ers had wintered in the Algarve and disagreed.
they do say last winter was best in algarve for awhile .
not sure myself . really spain or europe isnt warm enough . morocco is the easy one . better weather there than the canaries as they shelter the agadir province like a wind break. but i got fed up with maroc .
seen loads of floods on the algarve and gib area . used to spend oct nov and half of dec. algarve- gib area before going to maroc .
always found it too short a time if we drove down the east coast . kept missing things . last few years as been good just going slow and visiting more of the town -village we stop at.
tried wintering jan ,feb ,march in portugal a couple of times but always too much rain . 7 weeks one year never turned a tap . just filled from rain off the roof . or fonts .
but yes algarve is the best place for everyone . keep telling them to go there.
Yes, I was thinking of doing that but they have strange fishing laws. I do A LOT of fishing when away. Still, I'm not paying 30E a night staying on a packed site just so I can say I've visited Lake Bled etc !
Looks like it'll be France/Germany again with a night or 2 in Slovenia and Croatia, I have managed to track down a few aires via Campingcar infos.
Hi use this site .promobil.de/wohnmobil-stellplatz-europa-und-deutschland-It is good and shows you the sites . Hope it helps and have a safe journey. With regards to fishing in germany you have to pass a test to get a licence for fresh water dont know if it is required if you are a visitor just google german fishing clubs and make contact that way is probably the best.
No go ahead have another design for the 365 meet , Aiki will have it that the big surprise will be sending it to him next week just to liven the meet up . Pm uncle Aiki when it he gets the goods then you can get things rolling .
Foreigners dont need to do the fishing test (angelschein) but do have to have a local waterboard permit available at the town hall.Unfortunately most of the waters are club waters and without a bit of vitamin C (contacts)
not so easy to get on.The fly fishing rivers are for the most part together with an overnight in a pension to get a day card as is often the case in France and not cheap. I once looked in the net for fly fishing in Jura and the prices were sky high again most tied to an overnight in a pension.
Thanks for that. I reckon I'll just get the rod out anyway if I can't get a holiday ticket from the Rathaus. It'll be coarse fishing anyway. In the past I've found smiling a lot and speaking lousy German/French etc get's me off the hook. Pun intended.
Algarve, being on the Atlantic coast, is bound to get more rain than SE Spain on the Mediterranean. I grew up in Galicia, NW Spain and it is definitely NOT true that the rain in Spain usually stays on the plane. You go an tell that to any Galician; I dare you!!! Another myth. Those who believe that obviously haven't travelled further enough north west, but Portugal is very similar, although warmer in the south, of course.
