I'll stay home with central heating thank you:)

I do know of some friends who caravan all through the winter. One or two go down to Spain for the winter as its warmer than here in the UK. Others actually go to the Alps whether Austria, Switzerland or France to do some skiing as its cheaper than staying in hotels
