we are going to the Netherlands. i am feeling a little bit ...not anxious exactly but certainly apprehensive!

Ooh, we're talking about going to the Netherlands next summer.

Ahhh. Eskdale is beautiful. We were there for the beer festival in June. Crap weather, but otherwise great. Which site?? I love both of them for different reasons.

Interesting. What made you pick the Netherlands for camping?

The Netherlands is fabulous for camping - they are all camping people ...

We're off to Corsica next weekend. Very excited, but just starting to get a bit nervous about packing!

We're going here and here with a couple of shorter trips to other places. Off next week and I can't wait.

Scotland and some of the Islands for us, up through the Lakes, then to Hampton Court and Hay on Wye for two separate weekends. Hoping to get a long weekend in Snowdonia too if we can manage it and probably two nights on the Norfolk Broads canoe camping.

We're off to Belgium for a week at the end of August. I lived there for a couple of years as a child and have done Brugge and Brussels with a DH a few times. Campsite has a swimming with canoes and pedaloes, bike hire and masses of play equipment. And we get to drag the DC sound a few cities for the cultural angle. Plus beer and chocolate of course.

I'm a bit nervous as Belgium isn't know as a camping destination and most of the Flanders sites didn't look too appealing but the one we're chosen looks good.

We're probably heading to France again next year but would like to try the Netherlands sometime.

i'm looking at either Cuba, Mexico, Southern American (Georgia type), or maybe Barbados....

I would need to work for an airline to take my gear camping IWorkForAnAirline, I would be bankrupt otherwise!

Rowlestone Court Farm, Bosworth Water Park and Whitemead Forest Park so far.

Going to make the most of being a teacher and follow the UK sunshine this summer.
