It is Friday, the 11th of February, this is episode 38 from welcome back to driving Horizon's. And low, hello, hello and a good morning, a good afternoon and a good evening to whenever or wherever you are listening to this.
Richard here, welcome back to the podcast. If you are new here, then welcome. And if you aren't a regular, then of course, welcome back. So it's been a busy week, mainly in the office this week. I've been doing lots of editing to get some videos out.
Last week show you may have heard me talk about the motor home and camper van show or the now set motor home camping show I went to. So I'm not going to talk about that this week. You can find all about that in last week's episode, but what I am going to talk about this week is some
of the amazing things that I did while I was down in that part of the world. So the motorhome and camper van show was in West Point in Exeter and I stayed down there. I saw some sites around Exeter and a couple of places on the way back, so stay with me to hear about the suggestions I've
got for the area and the great places that we were that I visited when I was down there. I spotted a couple of things this week in a magazine that I wanted to and I wanted to share with you.
I picked up a copy of the Practical Motorhome magazine, which talks about much of homes and camper vans and things like that. I don't think it really touches too much on on caravans, but on one of their pages, they were talking about the site winners that are judged and awarded by the AA.
And one of the campsites that they have awarded Campsite of the Year to for Wales is one that we visited a couple of years ago. And just by chance, because I put this video out long before I saw this magazine, I recommended this campsite for one that we would definitely revisit in 2022.
So it looks like the AA have good taste because if I can recommend it, then obviously it's good enough for them as well. And the other thing I saw in there was something called night stops. Now night stops is I don't know if anyone's familiar too much with Harvest's hosts that they have in in America is basically
businesses, you know, things like wineries, breweries, places that have lots of land where you are allowed to register and all these caravans, motorhomes, whatever they want to call them over there can park for free. But they are expected, I guess, is the word to use the services of the venue at your park here.
So if you're staying at a winery, a winery, have a wine tasting or by a couple of bottles of wine, if you are staying at a brewery, maybe have dinner there or try out some of the bears is kind of a Win-Win situation because the Tories can park for free and the businesses get people there to spend
money and they're buying their goods and services and just giving up space that would otherwise be sat idle when empty. So they're placing this thing in the UK is called night stops and I've only ever seen in the last couple of months and we have something around Europe corporate stocks, which is quiet, which is quite similar, but
this just looks a little bit less. You know, you don't have to sign up for anythi
