In the hope of getting out of the bad weather of Les Deux Alpes, we headed for our next stop near Lac De Paladru, unfortunately we didn't, if anything the weather was worse with almost constant rain for the 2days we stayed, we were still recovering from our bugs so we again spent most of our time in the van..

We took a couple of walks out in between the showers so again not much to report here....

We had breakfast at one of the local boulangerie and Mich is getting on well with her travellers French, I on the other hand get away with a Je ...

Connie not the support I'd hoped for

... there was no sign of Connie. At this point I realized a fatal flaw in my planning. You see, coming into this trip I kept telling people that my main motivation in climbing quickly was that she had the VISA and would be ahead waiting for me in the next town…shopping. I had to get there quickly to limit the damage. What I didn’t take into account was the many shopping opportunities on the way to the tops of the climbs. Connie came ...
