Glad you have managed to get online to tell us you have arrived I've been wondering how you got on, particularly with your pets. Hope you manage to get on line more often now you are over here in sunny Spain so you can tell us how you are getting along.

hello,sorry our comments are few and far between but like i said we are using a friends pc til we sort ours out!Firstly as somebody asked how is the weather,bloody hot,takes some getting used to especially when im working in the sun all day,well most of it!The route we took was channel tunnel then follow the motorway all the way to spain,through the tolls etc...........we used our tom tom which was good,but found the first part through france very boring,but improved as we got to southern france into spain.One thing that i thought was bad,was that nobody checked our passports or our aanimals ones for the entire journey!for all they know we could have not had any!The animals were brilliant the whole journey,we gave them some rescue remedy for animals b4 we left and not one problem........they seem happy here too which helps.The next thing is hoping our 10 yr old enjoys school when he starts in september,they will help a lot knowing he is happy.Anyway ill stop babbling on,and hope to come on here again soon to talk. take care everyone.

Its only the UK that checks pets traveling in. ;-))
The risk is if you don`t have the papers you might just get stopped..... but very unlikely in any other EU country.

hi Himnher, we are hoping to get somewhere Alicante/Valencia area. We have friends who live just outside Benidorm but looking for somewhere a bit more rural. We want to buy a bit of land as we are moving over in a motorhome, but we dont want to buy anything until we know our hearts in the right place. So we will be gypsies for a little while, leaving prob 1st April next year and heading down to Calais and then down into Spain. Its quite an adventure as we dont really know where we will end up x

Just noticed that you still have Burgess Hill as your location so I think that you may be changing that because it is in Sussex not Spain or is it?
