  1. Really enjoyed your post. We”re 6 weeks into a 3 month trip. Having been through southern Spain (most of it covered in plastic) and the Algarve, we”re now heading up the west coast of Portugal. We”re hoping the north of both countries will be better but, so far, none of them come near our first love France. We”re looking forward to getting back to well-kept aires in the thick of the town or village, rather than a stony car park (no facilities) on the very edge of the action. France wins hands down!
