We are in France and it's like living in a parallel universe. There is a lovely lake near by with kayaks and lots of boats locked up. If it was england the place would be packed even though it's fairly cold the whole village is closed and quiet. Just managed to catch a local shop open till 12 this morning in the village for our baguette. It's great driving over here as well especially between 12 and 2 as all the French have a siesta. Have to get out of the habit of arriving at campsites after 12 like in England, you risk getting shot if you arrive before 12 there. Still using campsites as we only have 2 calor bottles and no adaptor., will use Aires when it warms up a bit.
