    Been warned not to even attempt to get in to Angoulume for the racing,,,, unless I hire a car and park away from the city... :(

    Looking forward to a week of unwinding.. :BigGrin::france:

    A lot use Dingles or Dongles and mifi things....

    We have a sky dish that also picks up the internet satellite through the dish.. works OK as long as there are no tree`s in the way.. but they are expensive.

    It was on the van when we bought it,,,, as soon as it goes kaput we will revert to a dongle... far cheaper.. (y)

    There is an aire right in Cognac and you can do a distillery trip and tasting right over the bribge from the aire, if you go to the aire make sure you don't go in the car park with low trees as it's a bugger to get out of the aire is closer to the river.

    Personal experience, won't forget that one in a while.
