Motor Home Trip to Gibraltar Powered By Docstoc
					Being a motorhome enthusiast for twenty years now, I’ve always dreamt of that
extended trip of fourteen weeks or so in Gibraltar. Being a self employed roofer, I
finally realised that I was in a position to make this dream a reality. My wife Dorothy
and our faithful cat Lulu 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
Gibraltar. My motorhome is a seven year old two berth, coachbuilt Dethleffs with a
Ford Transit engine and our previous longest trip was a twelve night trip to Ireland,
covering 600 miles. This trip started with a choppy ferry trip, to take us to the
continent, followed by a pleasant short road journey to our destination. We decided to
make three 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 on our previous visit. Our TomTom satellite navigation system was brilliant,
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 tourist attractions. On arrival
at our destination, our first impressions were impressive. The medium, municipally
run campsite clearly had close to all the amenities we required and was nothing like
the pictures in the online site that we had viewed in our preparation. For a site with
four hundred or so pitches, we found the staff rather unfriendly and the site was very
noisy even during the morning. The weather was very bad, considering that we
travelled in April. The local market each Saturday was a great source of fruit,
vegetables, meat and cheeses. The overall experience was an amazing one and I
would thoroughly recommend a motorhome holiday at Gibraltar.
