Motorhome-Man is back in the West Midlands, England after a torturous trip from the Costa del Sol Spain

Stranded Costa Del Sol motorhome man finally arrived home after a torturous trip back from Spain which went badly wrong and left him penniless and wishing he had stayed here instead.

Motorhome man is back in the West Midlands after a journey that cost him all his money and virtually wrecked his main residence, his motorhome.

After being hounded by police in Fuengirola and a mass of abuse on social media he decided to risk the journey back, not even knowing if he and his trusted transport could make it.

After reading some of the posts on Facebook he took their advice and drove through France to the Channel Tunnel, a decision he deeply regrets as he was stopped and pulled over at least 20 times on the way. He said: “I must have got my passport out that much it’s dropping to pieces, the French police are worse than the Spanish ones, they can’t stand the English and it was worse as I don’t understand French!”

Sonia Warren was soon ranting on Facebook about motorhome-man: “OMG, just go will you! I mean you moan all the time about Spain being a police state so go back and see what it’s like in the UK now, you have a surprise coming!”

Motorhome Man – The road to France

MHM: “Everything is expensive in France, a lot more than in Spain – food, diesel, and parts for my motorhome. The fan belt snapped and I had to walk about 10km to the nearest garage, they wanted to charge me €60 for a fan belt! – so I nicked it and did a runner!

“I’ve made a lot of friends on Facebook and eventually I will come back to Spain, it has the weather, cheap beer and Free Wi-Fi, what else do you want?”#euroweeklynews

Local Fuengirola resident Tim Caines, a friend of MHM said: “I’m glad he is ok, he was basically hounded out of Spain, shame really, nice bloke and a character, I hope he comes back though, I lent him €50 for diesel!” #holidaymakers

      Great idea in Feungirola that have put Blue arrows on the beach front indicating which direction to travel when walking.
      Beach side goes in the direction of Benalmadena and the other side goes in the direction of Mijas.
      A few wasn’t observing this helpful guide but then we all have thick friends don’t we .
      Stay safe.
