Mrs BigJohn & I are planning to head off in the car to France & Spain at the end of July taking bikes, windsurfers and camping gear and just mooching around for a few weeks as the mood takes us. I'm thinking of Mediterranean coast from the Camargue down to Perpignan and then doing some riding in the Pyrennees.
I thought that if we stayed away from the more crowded tourist hot spots we would be able to find a camp site when we needed one, but Mrs BigJohn is getting a bit jittery and thinks we will need to book. I think that will spoil the fun - having to have a schedule.
Does anybody have any recent experience or recommendations?
