Arrived and was greeted by a very friendly monsieur who luckily spoke very good English. The rooms were very clean and tidy, although in need of a little 'Moderne-isation'.
Ideally situated next to the train station and within easy reach of the cathedrals and restaurant/bistro lined squares and streets.

... the Tring Mansion, which turned out to be another building built by the Rothschilds. As I couldn’t visit Hatfield House, we went to see Waddeston Manor, which was built by one of the Rothschilds as a home for the art that he collected. It was only every used as a Hunting Lodge so hasn’t suffered as much as many of the National Trust properties that we’ve seen.

It was weird standing there knowing it's a once in a life opportunity and that the Canadian lady had wanted to come all her life and had finally made it, it was a really good opportunity. Really enjoyable and a great way to see what the war means to the people ...
Another productive day in the saddle, although, our luck so very nearly ran out with the weather. The usual routine this morning, up early, cleared out the breakfast buffet and on the road by about 08:30. The old town at Laon sits atop a monster hill which Steve, Clive and I had climbed the previous evening, so, as our hotel was at the lower level, we skirted around the old town without climbing ...
... iff to find an electronics store in the morning. Can I get a break here? Around 5 the sky's cleared and beautiful sunshine came out. So I figured now was a good time to make a move for the B&B. Made it here with relatively little drama. Didn't take any wrong turns and I only walked past it once. Yay me. The host, Claire, is just lovely. And bonus, the computer is a Mac, so I can plug my phone and iPad directly into the computer to charge them up...turns out I can get a ...
