Blog pages have now been updated for:
Records the campsites/aires that we have stayed at since acquiring Twernt and OUR rating for each based on the site and the location – we aren’t fans of staying on ‘car parks’ so aires are generally down-rated even though they may be in a top location. The massive invasion of mozzies at Honfleur caused a serious down-rating although in a great location. Our favourites to date have been Broadway, Durdle Door, Biarritz, Cabanas and Finca de la Piedra here at Villafranco del Guadalhorce. All chosen based on location.
2. Running Costs
We have spent a total of £3526.40 living full-time in Twernt from 16th May 2014 to 23rd November 2014. That’s £18.46 per day or £129.22 per week or, extrapolating history to a full year, £561.49 per month – £6737.90 per annum.
All of this is based on our ‘baseline’ living costs and does not include food/meals out/clothing and any other personal expenditure. You can see what has been included though by clicking on ‘RUNNING £’s’ on the blog page.
3. MPG Analysis
Self explanatory really, it is worth mentioning that the MPG achieved on the last 2 fill-ups shows a declining MPG achievement; we know that this is due to a slight diesel leak from a kafuggered O ring on the diesel filter – need to get this fixed in the next few days. I blame the atrocious Portuguese road surfaces which are ‘unkind’ to motor-homes.
In fact, most Portuguese roads are like continuously driving on a cattle grid. Try doing that at 30 mph or more in a moho!
