Motor Home Trip to Andorra Powered By Docstoc
					Being a motorhome enthusiast for ten years now, I’ve always dreamt of that extended
trip of ten weeks or so in Andorra. Being a self employed architect, I finally realised
that I was in a position to make this dream a reality. My wife Sandra and our faithful
cat Tipper were more than willing to be travel partners on this trip of a lifetime. So
after much research, planning and packing we were finally on the road to Andorra.
My motorhome is a five year old six berth, C Class Chausson with a Mercedes
Sprinter engine and our previous longest trip was a nine night trip to Scotland,
covering 1000 miles. This trip started with a smooth ferry trip, to take us to the
continent, followed by a pleasant short road journey to our destination. We decided to
make two overnight stops on our way there and these were mainly in aires, which
suited us perfectly, as it broke up our journey. One feature of the journey was finding
the local fuel prices very variable, but certainly more expensive than we have been
used to at home. Our Garmin satellite navigation system was a necessary item,
although traditional maps are a must on a journey of this type. In fact we used maps
mostly for navigation and the sat nav to identify nearby points of interest. On arrival
at our destination, our first impressions were impressive. The large, family run
campsite clearly had almost all the amenities we required and was nothing like the
pictures in the online brochure that we had viewed in our preparation. For a site with
two hundred or so pitches, we found the staff rather helpful and the site was very
noisy even during the night. The weather was very bad, considering that we travelled
in Spring. The local market each Thursday was a great source of fruit, vegetables,
meat and cheeses. The overall experience was an eventful one and I would thoroughly
recommend a motorhome holiday at Andorra.
