On The Road

Great crossing on Tues night from Rosslare to Cherbourg calm seas and cabin upgrade with Stenaline as not many onboard.

No border check issues with our new Irish passports and IRL branded van.

Quick run down to Falaise and parked up outside William the Conqueror’s Castle.

Headed to the Aire at Reginac Sur Indre today but road was blocked for access to village.

Plan B, headed 8 miles on to an Aire in Loches. Sun shining, short dander into town and some liquid refreshment. (eat your heart out Barryd)

See pics of Loches attached.

Great post. Sounds like a very successful start to your trip. Very jealous.



Pity Leffe was 'Blonde' not Rituel, so Barry will be only half p*ssed off - maybe a second one tomorrow will sort it.

Always preferred blondes but don’t tell the misses : - D

Forgot to say saw a few yellow vest encampments along the road but only one was manned.

Diesel at road side stations in the €1:55s although filled a tank at supermarket €1:40.

Roads really quiet never got through Le Mans so quickly.

Loche is looking lovely. Better weather than I'm having here in Salzburg.

We stayed a couple of nights at Loches last September, very nice, bit of a pain though if you need to move to get some water as it is over at the other site. Very busy aires when we were there, vans parked everywhere.

No, I like both. Rituel is like Blonde on steroids.

Can everybody stop posting photos of Leffe! I havent got any and I cant drink it at the moment anyway.

Bah!

Have a good trip Terry.

Thanks DB, we have previously stayed in the Citadel campsite at the top of the town and did notice a service point in the car park outside it.

The Aire we are on has the river to one side and a non electrified railway on the other side, but since yesterday when we arrived not one train has gone by ?
