... there to buy those. The views from some of the vantage points are spectacular too. Being able to see for miles in all directions. One point to note for anyone travelling in a campervan more than 2.5metres high is that the main way in is blocked by a very low narrow bridge. As we do indeed have a campervan that is 2.6 metres in height, we had to drive about two miles down very narrow roads to get in! Parking too is a nightmare: we parked on ...
... hotel Le Avigne was "cold and not boned properly, took 45 minutes to prepare, and was an all-round bugger's muddle," ranted Paul.
Apart from some tinkering with the idle on the carburettor the day has been mechanically sound.
Paul has decided to treat himself and gone for a two-star hotel tonight. He's even got his own shower and quieter neighbours, see picture for details.

... things I've seen that worked...
- open all the doors and the boot, eject people and belongings on all sides into the street. Take your time.
- sit in the car for a while and talk to your friends who are standing in the street next to your car.
