"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

From Wales to France

Setting off at 5am and driving all the way (apart from an hour and a half on the ferry) to somewhere near Orleans, where we finally arrived fourteen hours later, makes for quite a tiring day, and it is not improved when the GPS sends us through Paris at rush hour for some unknown reason. However, we are here now, with FREE internet access and all ready to snooze the night away.

Something else which was not according to plan was the torrential rain which greeted us for half our journey. As Keith said, you could see the car in front overtaking but couldn't see what it was overtaking! Here's hoping for much better weather from now on. Be good, everyone!

  2. I'm hoping to arrive in Floc in summer-wear, YP! I'm sure we'll have a lovely time and, of course, I'll pass on your good wishes to Robin. ;)
