Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
October and two tours have recently come to an end with another still taking place.
The 2022 Croatian Highlights tour has recently finished, with all those on the tour having now returned to the UK. The weather throughout the tour was hot, with lots of opportunity to see the country as the tour travelled along the Adriatic coast as far south as Dubrovnik. Some reviews from the tour,
‘What a delightful tour you have taken us on. We would not have done it on our own. Thank you so much for taking such good care of us. Lots of experiences’ Rosemarie & James Rowe
‘This was our first GB Motorhome Tour and we had a wonderful time but it wouldn’t have happened had it not been for our great tour directors – Ron & Sue. We have been to so many lovely places, had lots of meals and had many hours of fun with our fellow travellers. Looking forward to our next tour in 2023’ Alison & Tony Watkins
‘We thoroughly enjoyed this Croatia Tour, our first with GB Motorhome Tours and we are sure that it will not be our last. Well organised Ron & Sue’ Barbara & Tony Houson
‘Thank you for a fabulous first tour with GB Motorhome Tours, looking forward to many more, felt very looked after, you both do a wonderful job’ Sharon & John Morgan
The Northern Italy’s Treasures 2022 tour has also recently finished, where they too enjoyed great weather throughout; with tour participants visiting Lake Garda, Pisa, Rome, Florence, Bologna and Venice. Reviews from the tour,
‘An excellent introduction to the glories of Northern Italy. Excellent meals and campsites in the main. Dave and Sue Stanway, attentive and experienced tour leaders with lots of suggestions for additional activities. We really appreciated being offered pitches close to the facilities building.’ Roy & Kath Tipping – Northern Italy Treasures September 2022
‘Sue and Dave were great fun and led a really good trip around the cities of northern Italy and Lake Garda. They also managed to squeeze in a few little gems like Orvieto.’ Carolyn and Nick Griffiths – Northern Italy Treasures September 2022
‘Many thanks to Sue and Dave for their excellent leadership. Always on hand but not intrusive and very helpful.’ Peter and Barbara Ball – Northern Italy Treasures September 2022
The tour that remains away is Cyprus and More, where the group arrived in Northern Cyprus this week. Being around 3000 miles from the UK, the weather in Cyprus is wonderful for touring at this time of year, daytime temperatures of high 20’s with plenty of sunshine for swimming, sightseeing and relaxing. The night-time temperature being a little below 20, makes it ideal for sleeping in a motorhome.

Next week the Cyprus and More tour will cross the ‘Green Line’ which divides the island, as they move from Northern Cyprus to Southern Cyprus. Crossing the ‘Green Line’ with vehicles has only been possible in more recent times and for crossing with a foreign registered vehicle, this has only become a reality even more recently. An interesting feature of travelling in Cyprus is that all driving is on the left, this being a throwback from Britian’s involvement with the island over a very long period. Even the UK standard 3 pin electrical plug is in use in many parts of Cyprus.
With winter arriving soon in the UK and cooler night-time temperatures possible; if you’re not using your motorhome at the moment, drain down the water systems so as to avoid potential damage from frozen tanks and pipes. How to do this is usually covered in your motorhome habitation manuals, or if in doubt give your motorhome dealer a call and they should be able to guide you.
