    Just looking at booking the ferry to France in two weeks.

    Was thinking, this is our 23rd consecutive year of going to France sometimes twice a year...
    Not bad considering we are only 44

    Why ?

    Because anything you want to do you can do there....

    Scenery ace
    Surf ace
    Ski ace
    Aires ace
    Campsites ace
    People ace
    Food ace
    Roads ace


    Have I forgot anything?


    We go though without the kids for the first time since they were born :Sad: as they don't want to come.

    Off to germany & Belgium too :thumb:
    Need chocolate and vodka...

    Off to Langres,

    We loved staying at the municipal site at Arromanches. Also enjoyed the show as the motorhomes packed into the aire below the site. i've never seen such a performance talk about sardines in a can.

    We went to Langres in August. Lovely old town and a great walk around the outer walls. Say hello to the wino's in the churchyard, even the drunks are pleasant!

    We started going to France in 1984, haven't missed a year since, have a great time.

    Have fun Paul like you we are at the stage where Sophie doesn't want to come away all the time, so our week away in Berlin last week was just the two of us and although we missed her it was great :Rofl1::Rofl1:. I hope she doesn't read this or I'm in trouble

    We have ferry booked for Wednesday, thinking of heading down south west, after a drive down Channel coast to Honfleur. Can't wait, I hope the weather holds for a few al fresco wines.
