    Came off the ferry at Dieppe this afternoon straight into a pea souper cleared up after a few miles. Drove the rest of the day in brilliant sunshine with temps of 14 - 15°.

    Tried a different Aire for our first stop a a few km south of Nonancourt at Brezolles.
    A nice walled area next to the lake & near the village centre. Free of course, nothing but the best for a F'LT.

    One other Brit here in a Frankie, left our door open for an hour they never came and said hello.

    I seem to remember that the road was a bit noisy, plus the French managed to squeeze twice the number of vans in than there was really room for. Nice town though.
    Where are you heading for @Lenny HB?
    We are coming over in about 10 days time and intend going Portugal way.

    Richard.

    Road quiet now, a third van came in so only 3 of us.
    As we have to be in Belgium for 26th March not going to even try to get as far as Portugal. Probably go via Somport tunnel then head towards the coast.

    We’re going to Spain on Sunday and normally do the N10 route but having followed you on your Portugal trip and now this one I think I’ll try the A20 route to see what it’s like, have fun
