Not much to report today or yesterday as both were reasonably lazy days. We travelled from Carcassonne to somewhere about 80-100 km away. I don’t know where we are or what the place is called (Karen and the TomTom lady navigated) but we’re in a Southern France beachside town that is quite similar to the […]

Bonjour class, we are having a great time! Yesterday we got to our camp site and guess were we are? Carcassonne! I never thought that I would be here. It’s a lovely camp site it’s even got a pool (but not a heated one though!). It has the first computer game room in all the […]

Following on from this morning’s post, Carcassonne didn’t disappoint. Caleb was as high as a kite as him and Daniel paraded the walls pretending to fire arrows and load their crossbows. They were as excited as can be and thoroughly enjoyed their day within the walled city. We paid the entry price for the chateaux/palace/castle […]

Rocammadour promised so much based on its location, history and uniqueness but failed to deliver. What should have been a spectatular town to visit it was overrun with cheap, nasty tourist shops selling junk that nobody would ever hope to want or buy. We arrived at the top, parked the van and walked down the […]

Having been to a number of caves over the years in South Australia, New Zealand, Queensland and elsewhere none were of the scale or beauty of what we […]

I remembered the tiled black and white floor from when I had last visited when I was 8 years old! It seemed a lot bigger then…however still very impressive and with magnificent […]

Well, the day was pretty hard to take today. We started off with a bit of homeschooling, then off to another chateau by bike to view while we ate a picnic lunch. Fresh baguettes with beautiful unsalted French butter always was my favorite! Then back home, with Daniel cycling by himself all the way, for […]

Pre-Monday 21st June  As we have just got the blog running with some more reliable internet access, we have missed quite a bit out of our journey already! Here is a brief summary…  We spent a few days in London, staying in a bit of a dodgy apartment. Tim and I have decided that in […]

Today was our first full day in Cheverny after traveling from Paris yesterday via the Chambord chateaux. Cheverny is approximately 230km from our Paris campsite. Driving the motor home to Cheverny was easier than any other trip and it was beginning to feel car like; quite an accomplishment for something that’s over 7 meters long, […]
