Will no one of this 'we' suffer from jetlag/exhaustion?

Too little time in London and Paris.

' Provence. (Driving)' - ? - a near seven hour drive without stop from Paris, one day lost and then one day to 'see' this size area.

Seems then to improve with the amount of time expended in destinations.

I doubt you have calculated the lost time travelling between any two destinations, door to door, in unfamiliar surroundings, whatever transport.
