What is it about Bank holiday weekends that turn (what I assume are) normal people in to dirty, squalid creatures? Having just returned from a Bank Holiday weekend break in theElddis Accordo at a campsite I have stayed at many times I am horrified, sickened and disgusted the way many of my fellow campers behaved.
The campsite we stayed at over the weekend is a great site and having never had any issues or problems with it on any of my previous visits (and there have been several over the last few years) I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it. Had this Bank Holiday been my first visit to this site, however, I wouldn’t recommend staying at the site – in fact I would recommend staying away from the site.
There is nothing wrong with the campsite at all, it is the people that were the problem. It seems that as soon as the Bank Holidays start many campers turn in to selfish, obnoxious and disgusting people. I seldom meet people like this on my normal weeks away in the motor home, although I do meet one or two, so what is it about Bank Holidays?
I have had a few comments on some of blog posts calling me a snob, from people who don’t know anything about me, which I feel is a little unfair. That said if being a snob means:-
The above list is just a few examples of the dirty, disgusting and despicable stuff I have witnessed over the weekend (and on more than one occasion) and not doing these things or thinking they are totally unacceptable doesn’t make me a snob at all.
I have never experienced the behavior above at the site before, so why did it suddenly happen over the Bank Holiday? I just don’t get it.
Whilst emptying the tanks before leaving the site, which are near the bins I overhead a couple of the people who work on the site saying how disgusting people are and how they don’t seem to give a s**t. These poor blokes had the unenviable task of clearing the bins, which were not only overflowing but also contained ripped bags, bags that were not tied up, broken glass and dog poo bags. As well as this I saw broken camping chairs, unwanted camping equipment and a whole load of other items that people shouldn’t have dumped on site.
This Bank Holiday motor home adventure has shown me that I need to stay at home over the Bank Holidays and do some DIY, gardening or something around the house, and leave my motor home trips for other times of the year.
