Hi John, I have been wintering in Spain since 2003 and I agree with your comments. I couldn't get away this winter for the obvious reason and I had a bit of a problem getting back last April cancelled ferries etc. I have noticed over the past couple of years quite a lot of the free parking spots have disappeared and there have been more restrictions placed on others. Portugal is always an alternative if you don't mind the state of the roads. Phil.
We gave up the Full timing road life in 2016 and have settled in Darlington. Sold our van to a nice young couple who are now full timing in her. Last report I had they were in Spain this winter.
Health and needing to renew C1 licence was the reason we stopped. Thought of getting a smaller van, but after COVID lockdown we opted to by a Hot Tub instead.
