    I was thinking of having a little tour with Max not too far from home and was wondering if any Funsters would be around for the French festivities. I bet a lot will be around Carcassonne what about the others?.
    Anyone in France and around Midi Pyrénées for the 14th of July?

    Gulp........can't believe I had a mental block and forgot it was Bastille Day ! Just sprinted to my diary to see where we were thinking of being on that day. Luckily for us, we are booked already for the days around 14th and won't be attempting to drive anywhere.....phew :p

    We are scheduled to drive back to Parc Verger from Ile D'Oleron that day! Is there a reason we should not?

    Lots of people will converge towards the best places of the country for fireworks but this doesn't mean you won't have festivities in the smallest villages. On the contrary they might have a street meal and ...most of the time it means that traffic will be either stopped (other routes proposed ) or it will be slow and very busy. They like to have "bal musette" in the little villages and drink to the 14th of July.... You might even hear this song "Dansons la carmagnole , vive le son , vive le son, Dansons la carmagnole, vive le son du canon!!"... and if they put costumes on , then you'll be going back years ago......

    fireworks and fibreglass vans don't go well together.
