After accidentally retiring in 1997 we've managed to find ways to travel on a low budget mainly by motorhome. With luck some of our tips and suggestions will inspire you to do the same.

Free camping in France
Finally we are back on the road with just the 2 of us in the motorhome so time to really try things out. We've bought the "All the Aires France" book and coupled with the Tomtom it is proving excellent for finding cheap or free camping.
Last night we arrived late on the ferry from Dover so drove for just 1/2 hour to Wissant (it was from the beach there that Julius Caesar heading to England). The purpose made aire is by the main road, has plenty of slightly sloping spots and is perfect for a one night stop.
Today we have headed south and found a beautiful spot in the village of Montville just north of Rouen. The parking is by a stream with a small lake over the bridge and it is a 2 minute walk into town. There is even free wi-fi.
