  • Taking Care of BusinessOur 2nd day in Paris was mostly devoted to taking care of business. First on the agenda a 10:00 am appointment at the vet for Shai. She was less than thrilled about getting back in her bag after Posted by ChristisDream in Christi & Ray's Trip of a Lifetime | Aug 20, 2017
  • LilleMy Moroccan adventure started in Lille, where I was studying for a term at the uni. Lille's a great place and 'the Leeds group' real and adopted were fantastic. It was a lovely relaxing few months. Lille was City of Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Jun 21, 2004
  • Saint Benoit du SaultAnother of France's deservedly 'most beautiful villages.' We had fun pushing the buggy down (and not up!) the steep narrow streets. Seems the vast majority of this village is for sale - count me in! We had our tastiest and Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 8, 2013
  • Crozant and the Sedelle ValleyThe nearby Sedelle valley was once an inspiration for the Impressionists. Fred gave us some super suggestions for walking in the valley. We followed the Artists path through the Sedelle Valley towards Crozant and back. The shaded forest and bubbling Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 5, 2013
  • GargillesseVoted one of the most beautiful villages in France, Gargillesse lives up to its reputation. Scorching heat and a sticky, moody baby sweating against me in his carrier meant I couldn't appreciate the village as much as possible! It took Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 4, 2013
  • Palais de VersaillesIt was an easy drive in the scorching heat towards Paris, with a slight detour into the centre on the search for Versailles (thanks strange Sat Nav settings!) Our exceptionally cheap hotel (40 euros) was functional and reminiscent of a Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 2, 2013
  • It would make a great day trip!After an almost disappointingly uneventful passing into France sans visa at 5am, driver Bill and our trusty Panda Mobile got their first taste of driving on the right. Bill immediately took to French driving - quite roads, smooth surfaces and Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 1, 2013
  • Avoiding the tolls!Bill decided we would go back to Calais avoiding the tolls to make the most of the scenery. The scenery was amazing - sunflower fields, corn bales, blue sky and chateaux. The city of Blois was a lovely surprise. It Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 9, 2013
  • Crozant Medieval FestivalThere are loads of festivals going on in the Limousin during the summer. We were thrilled to see that we would be there in time for the Crozant Medieval festival. It made for a super day - lots of people Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 7, 2013
  • Zoo Parc du BeauvalA world class zoo with pandas, lemurs, manatees and orangutans all in the same place! How could I possibly resist?!!

  • Argenton-sur-CreuseA stunningly beautiful riverside town, just 20mins from the gite. The photos speak for themselves! We pretty much had the place to ourselves as most of the shopkeepers were on annual leave! I could definitely get used to the French Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 4, 2013
  • Our giteThe drive seemed never ending at times but at 9pm, we made it to Walnut Cottage. In the hamlet of Parchimbaud (thankfully St Sebastien locals had heard of it!), the cottage was definitely off the beaten track, along winding one Posted by weixiaoliu in Adventures by weixiaoliu | Aug 2, 2013

  • Pezenas - day 1We got up this morning, had a coffee and a light breakfast, then drove to our new accommodation in Pezenas. The drive to Pezenas was uneventful until we got into the town. We quickly learned that our GPS was just Posted by Basebrown in European Vacation | Aug 19, 2017
  • Into Italy ~ Cuneo and Vinadio and lots of sheep[float=left][/float] No fireworks last night — or we slept through them. I guess they were all Saturday night in Jausiers. Posted by Beausoleil in France in Thirty Days | Aug 18, 2017
  • Day 25August 18 Left the very kind people in Montagnac today and headed 7 km down the road to Pezenas, where we now have an apartment to stay for the next 12 days. This is a bit bigger town than Montagnac, which Posted by Basebrown in Arlene's Adventures Abroad | Aug 18, 2017

  • Travails with Iggy and possible pastures newLeft Limoux Aire at about 11.00 am, it was sunny and cool. We noticed that workmen were hard at work putting up barriers.

  • OnwardsLeft the layby near Brignoles just before 11.00 heading down towards Frejus to meet Donna.
