"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."

Travelling on

Today we took the scenic route - intentionally - but forgot to do our homework with regard to where to stay tonight. We left Orleans and travelled south, past Clermont Ferrand, Vichy and Bourges (not necessarily in that order) and arrived, eventually in Puy le Velay, where we finally found somewhere to stay that satisfied my guidelines regarding economy. So here we are for the night and we now need to decide where we want to move on to tomorrow. There may be a slight animated discussion (we never have arguments), as I would like to see the bridge at Millau, which we saw a couple of years ago when it was still under construction, but Keith is in search of mountains and winding roads. Watch this space!
Oh, and once again, we were attacked by fierce rain! Global warming is no doubt to blame.

  2. Wasn't there a song "Lost in France" ? Wasn't it by another Welsh lass - Bonnie Tyler. Can't remember how it goes....
    "I was lost in France
    In Keith's great big Range Rover
    I was lost in France
    Way down south from Dover.."
