- Final bike day to SeteLast day, but longest one. From 39 km per day previously, we had to do 52km. So, getting lost and adding 2km to our day wasn’t a great start. Still, we got to see the nine locks and aquaduct Posted by kkoopmanschap in Our French Adventure | Jul 8, 2015

- Tres Bon, Tres BonHaving arrived with time to spare for my ferry, I felt indulging in a large haddock and chips was an apt way to say 'farewell England'! Especially with the many miles which lay ahead. The ferry arrives in Dieppe at Posted by Banana Spokes in Bears can ride bikes | Jul 6, 2015

- Bezieres and wine tastingOk, day three was a bit harder to start. Still, a French breakkie at the hotel helped.

- cartref modurSo why do I feel the need to refer to RV's, motorhomes and camping cars as.... cartref modur
Well why not
If the anglophobic French can refer to their beloved Chaussons as CAMPING CARS why shouldn't someone who has welsh ancestry use Posted by mdewfr in Preparation | Jul 2, 2015
