#289 Camping near Cherbourg - France
Of course when one's camping one needs a bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom with a shower and flushing toilet and wash basin and a nice big mirror.
It goes without saying that the kitchen has to be equipped with a micro wave, the capacious fridge has to have a deep freeze section, an oven with four burner gas hob, a double sink with sufficient hot water to do the dishes (I have to admit - no dishwasher!).
When roughing-it in the country it does help to have fitted carpets and plenty of storage space and a nice big wardrobe. Just in case it gets chilly it's good to know there is a central heating system and and for those days that are just too hot, two air conditioning units - one up front for the driver and a a slightly more powerful cooler for the house.
A few comfortable armchairs plus a four seater banquette at which to dine (convertible to another double bed) and an extra single bed (for the staff) and camping becomes almost acceptable ;-)
No WiFi on our campsite so a short trip to a local bar where the nice lady in the bar Le Tot de Bas gave me her password to log-on. We had to pay for the baguette, beer and paté but a sniff from the little dog under the table was free.
