Poppies

Colin, Penny, Max and I walked up the half mile or so to the village to visit the Boulangerie first thing. Baguette, croissant and tartelette aux poires. No danger of starvation in France. There is a footpath up to the

Harleys

After our stay in Heidelberg we drove down through Switzerland and spent the night at La Balme de Sillingy ( N 45.971242 E 6.031601 ), an aire by a lake near Annecy. The forecast for Northern Europe wasn’t great and

Heidelberg

On Tuesday we drove up to Heidelberg. We stayed at a slightly damp Camping Heidelberg; a grassy site on the River Neckar, about 5km from the centre of Heidelberg. Our great friend Farshid has a house in Heidelberg and he

Flying Over the Vines

On the second day at Ile du Rhin we cycled up through the forests on the German side of the Rhine. The cycleway crosses the Mohlin (a tributary of the Rhine) first, then there are lots of deserted tracks through

Why is this Lady Riding a Fish?

We moved north on Thursday and stayed at Camping Etang des Forges (N 47.654693 E 6.864738) in Belfort, a small site by a lake. On Friday we moved into Germany and drove a short distance up the Rhein to Breisach.

La Voie Des Vignes

When the snow started to fall in Chamonix we decided to move on. We had planned to visit Switzerland but the forecast there was wet and cold, and, as the Missus says, we can do wet and cold in Cumbria

The Aiguille Du Midi

We set off early (well 9am) from the site at Lake Annecy and drove the 57 miles to Chamonix. It would have been shorter but we were taken on a very interesting diversion, or deviation as they say here. There

Cycle Trip to Annecy

On Tuesday we had a leisurely drive from Digoin to Camping Municipal Les Champs Fleuris ( GPS : N 45.825801 E 6.188371 ) on Lake Annecy. This is very friendly campsite, almost deserted now, on sloping grass terraces. We are

Pierrefitte-sur-Loire

We explored Digoin in the morning; it is a short walk up from the aire along the Rue Nationale, past the Office de Tourisme. The tourist office was closed for Easter. Not sure why this Tour de France guy is

Whelkome to South Korean Cuisine.

We are at Camping de Sologne, 43 miles south of Orleans. This is a pleasant medium sized ACSI site on a lake in the small town of Salbris. ( GPS N 47.430214 E 2.054411 ) The site was recommended to
