Renting an RV - Germany - Page 31

We have had excellent reports about Reisemobile Clever Mieten (McRent). They rent motorhomes from 19 locations in Germany, have over 800 rental units, and seem to be pretty good about dealing with folks from North America. Their website is http://www.mcrent.de, note that you can click on the link in the upper left for English-language pages.

Terrain de Camping du Lac - Dijon, France - Page 227

July 27, 2005 Reader Update - Our least expensive campground - $ - we camped for only 8,00 Euros! No toilet seats, but otherwise facilities and campsites were very nice. Nice location along the river, and bike/hike trail. - From Tim Lundahl

Camping du Bois de Boulogna - Paris, France - Page 265

July 27, 2005 Reader Update - Definitely a $$$ (sorry, no Euro symbol on my keyboard!) campground - our most expensive of the trip. But it is a good campground, though traffic and other noise made it a few restless nights in tent. The shuttle bus to the Port Maillot metro station cost an additional 3.00 Euros per person, worth it compared to driving, but an additional cost nonetheless. We loved using the Metro - very convenient. - From Tim Lundahl

Camping Rio Vena - Burgos, Spain - Page 371

October 4, 2006 Reader Update - Last year, Camping Rio Vena in Burgos was closed when we arrived in the summer. I got the impression that it was because the owner was ill. This may have been resolved by now. However, we found a very nice campground on the other side of the river, Camping Municipal Fuentes Blancos. - Stan and Linda Rubin

Camping Villa d'Aosta - Aosta, Italy - Page 424

October 20, 2006 Reader Update -  - I noticed in your updates for Europe that Camping Villa D Aosta was found closed in 2005. Not so in 2006, because we stayed there for 4 or 5 days! It was one of our favorite stops in 3 months in Italy. - Stan and Linda Rubin

Reader Update - Summer 2005 - A reader visiting during the summer of 2005 reports this campground to be closed.

Roma Camping - Rome, Italy - Page 464

Reader Update 10/4/06 - Camping Roma in Rome also must have improved their laundry, toilet and shower facilities since you last visited them. They seem to have affiliated with campgrounds in Venice and other places and have created quite the party atmosphere for young travelers in the bar, restaurant and pool. - Stan and Linda Rubin

Camping Athens - Athens, Greece - Page 554

6/10/07 Reader Update 6/10/07 - It is no longer possible to turn left into the campground when approaching from the west.

There are signs 500 M and 100 M before the campground when traveling west. There is now hot water for the dishwashing sinks, and phones within the campground (which allow access to ATT Direct without the use of coins nor card).
