First trip to Europe - France, Spain, Germany, Belgium. 7th April '16 six week tour.
Headed for LeShuttle all excited and stopped overnight at M20 J11 after a long run from Devon. Arrived early at the terminal and was so easy and organised don't know why I worried. Not having driven in France before thought we'd give ourselves a chance to get used to the roads and find the sun quicker so we'd go on the toll roads after 300 miles and a total toll bill of €101 (class3) we decided to let the satnav take us non toll. Well what a pleasure some beautiful countryside, miles of vineyards through Loire valley, lovely roads, good clear signposts, easy driving don't know why I worried.
Travelling on Sunday in France was a bit like driving through ghost towns no people, no cars and the villages were like scenes from old war films.
Arrived Saint Jean d'Angely - Val de Boutonne campsite. Well worth a stop a Royal Abbey dates back to Medieval times a very old town with courthouse and town square dread to think what happened there! (see Wikipedia).
John preparing for next leg Tuesday 250miles to Biarritz.
