we left the Village Motel at around 11:30 and headed into the town centre to find a supermarket and a tabac.
We found a Carrefoure with a tabac next to it, which was closed. I was getting short of tobacco so decided that I would find one when we hit the outskirts of Troyes.
After having an early lunch we hit the motorway, we had 178 …
... I could heat my 'TV dinner' and have a cup of coffee too. Beer and wine were part of the deal, which only required me to sign the visitors' book and to make a donation according to my means/conscience. What a wonderful service!
I slept reasonably well and was up and out by 8am,while the good folk of the village were still asleep in their characterful old-fashioned timbered houses.
I walked through open fields of ...
... to the harbour. After travelling along some streets twice, we finally located the spot. Free camping, but every motorhome parked in line next to its neighbours. Well, just on dark we decided to make it do by parking right at the end next to the ferry terminal. So there we spent our first night in France, serenaded by massive RORO ferries every half hour around the clock. The camp is run very economically, they even shut the loos between 7pm and midday the next day!
... and pleasure boats ready for winter. It's still rather pleasant when the sun is out but when there are clouds you notice the temperature dropping right away. From Auxerre we drove through the vinyards of Chablis to Troyes. The old town of Troyes is particularly pretty with a lot of well maintained half-timbered buildings painted in all different colours.

Not many people speak English - so far not having a huge success in translating but alas pointing and laughter seems to help. I Spent the afternoon at a beauty salon - manicure, pedicure and massage was just what I needed to recharge the batteries.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Les Epingliers Saint-Andre-les-Vergers
I chose this hotel for the secure parking. The car park is in full view of the road which made me a bit nervous about leaving my motorcycle, although I did manage to tuck it away out of sight.
The guy in reception spoke a little English and was very helpful in helping us with directions to a couple of places.
The rooms are a bit small but cozy.
