    We are organising a trip to Scandinavia this summer in our Motorhome but are unable to find any books showing us campsites or aires as in the rest of Europe.  We feel we need some way of finding campsites other than our satnav. Can you help us.

    I’m not that much used to camping during the cold season because of the climate conditions, but reading your tips on how to keep warm during the season is helpful.

    I grew up camping with my lower middle class family. Cheap way to see a lot of the country. I love it. Many campgrounds have restrooms and a shower. They vary in quality and cleanliness, but if you plan to shower at the campground, ALWAYS have flip flops or sandals or crocs to wear in the shower. Its a little weird at first, but everyone does it and a few minutes of feeling a little odd when you first jump in is better than foot fungus. Plus, showering nude and having a woodland breeze blowing through the open window is oddly freeing. You gotta try it. Camping rules!!!

    WE are neither of those that you note in the BLOG
    We prefer comfort and warmth using our now aging Tourer to travel around Europe

    We used be called explorers except we now take well trodden paths that are wheelchair friendly we now prefer sites with plenty of facilities though not necessarily those for families but also not necessarily adult only.  Yet this year we have been wild camping on a show site (not a caravan show either) and have used Camping Cheques and ACSI sites as well as UK Commercial ones

    So you could say we are Comfort Campers

    What type of camper???
    A Tin Tenter
    Someone who can get his wheelchair or scooter around the site without problems
    Someone who can relax and take in nature whilst enjoying some fishing or photography
    Someone who would love to just disappear for weeks at a time to anywhere in Europe

    Was offered a position as inspector a couple of years ago. Waited for the necessary info to arrive, but never heard any more. Thought it may have been something to do with the takeover. Spend a lot of time in France, any positions available now?
