With the introduction of low emission zones being introduced in so many places going round will be a must for most of us. Life is getting more challenging for us old mohomers, hee hee
We were thinking of going there for January, but after seeing photos of aires, we decided we were better off where we were at Argelès-sur-Mer, just south of Perpignan. The weather was so cold all over Spain, that there didn't seem to be any point whatsoever to cross over. We just couldn't justify the drive, paying for petrol, tolls, etc. We still got some winter sun, but not as much warmth. We went out for nice meals instead.I don't fancy maroc, don't know why no plausible reason just don't fancy it
Slow is our second name: when you tow a trailer, speed is a luxury!i use compass when in a big city.
might try and glance at map for signs to another place in the area i want to end up. some times look at city maps ,they come in the mapamax . but ideally the compass is all you need .
mind you do need a map to see the direction you are going .
not saying you just follow satnavs .
many do just scribble in where they want to go and only follow sat navs .
more and more when away seem to not have a proper map these days .
i have a dashboard mounted compass and have proper sylva map reading compass.
used to have a handlebar mounted one for on the m,bike but its gone now .
very often heading straight through a big city is easier than trying to go round .
madrid is really easy. yet so many try going round it.
just go slow and off you go.
Being a bit 'careful' I like to get the best mileage out of every gallon so the rev's stay at 2k maximum (about 55mph) Let's face it there's no point in rushing too much, only gets you there fasterSlow is our second name: when you tow a trailer, speed is a luxury!
The rain in Spain is usually in Galicia, but also the whole north coast, hence the name Costa Verde. The rain started in late November, when we arrived in Bilbao, and continued in Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. Portugal was dry until 8th December, when Storm Anna arrived. We were at Vila Nova de Cerveira, borderline with Spain, and the mohome rocked like a cradle: early frighteninget. We crossed back into Spain on 10th Dec to Boiro, Rías Baixas, and sun was shining again and almost warm.but come on 55mph is still fast. ask coolla . i only do 40mph on main roads or even one m,way we used.
fatima ..i do tow a little trailer behind my truck. hee hee.
in truth it could tow at 70mph easily but i like going slow ,looking around , over hedges in folks gardens .
stop if the scenery is really nice .
pull over if a big truck etc want or need to get passed.
i,m sure too many are rushing around but missing the nice bits .
spain inland is usually cold and snowy . i know you know that.
france can be as well or flooded by the rain in france or up the mountains .
the rain in spain is usually in portugal.
morocco, rain in november . usually rains xmas day. march /april trade winds come by , with rain and high seas at the coast . sandstorms inland or down below tiznet etc .
