Thanks for the info, it seems the trip has been so long in the 'getting ready' stage, it's almost upon us without us deciding where to go
. We've got the aires and ACSI books, and the Rough Guide to France. and a map book. other than tha twe'll follow our noses. apart from knowing where Paris and Marseilles are we are woefully ignorant of the geography of France, we've been sitting through many episodes of A Place in the Sun Homeor Away, which has given us an idea,of,the terrain, thats why we picked Languedoc and the southwest, it looked so beautiful. well, it,s as good a method as any
. We don't want to cover too many miles, you don't see a country if you,re tearing through it, All the people hot footing,it,up,to,the Highlands,of,Scotland and missing out the beautiful Borders on the way.
Wonder if we should take snow chains?
