... is basic, but we share it with some 12 other Motorhomes, so all is good. A quick explore of the village,.. a visit to the local Patisserie ( for dessert), and the supermarket for a baguette, pate, fromage, and some French wine,.. and we were settled in for the night. Coll looked at me and said,.. "Look at you, you haven't stopped smiling since we crossed the border!" I have to say, it is a nice feeling to get back to the French pastries, French wine, and bread,..

The title says it all! Today we cycled from Valloire to Briancon over the Col du Galibier (2646m). The weather was against us pretty much all day, as we woke to pouring rain forcing us to drag everything inside and practically take over the sites shower block!

It's been a wet start and finish to our first wedding anniversary today.

Currently tucked in our tent, enjoying looking through the photos so far while the rain continues ...

... after a breakfast of bread and spreads, and began the ascent of Col de Telegraphe. This took us from hotel level 710m to 1566m. As we began this ascent there was a sign saying the road over Col du Galibier would be closed tomorrow for a little bicycle race they have over here, it's called the Tour de France. So we had no choice now, we had to complete the entire ascent today, or lose more days in our schedule. The road up to Col de Telegraphe was mainly foresty and ...
