Ahhh...figured out the le problem with le GPS

... the GPS was set to avoid tollways which is why we had such a scenic route yesterday. So had a much speedier trip today. Although we did pay for the privilege. 18 euro for one of the tollways.

On the way to the big house we drove through a village called Le Chiteau and although its a mix of translation and homonym Jess and I decided that we wouldn't drink the water there just to be on the safe side.

A travel blog entry by dubdup

Just us (The Good Olde Boys) and Interceptors to go, of for 9am and on the road we go, steady drive, still put in another 9 hours of driving, but managed to go via the Millau bridge and kept pushing to get to Orleans, so this gives us an easier day tomorrow.

Rat Rods drove through the night to get to Calais for 3pm, then the 6pm boat over to the UK, they reckon to be back home in the North East for 2am. Tip my hat to them, that is a marathon driving session!! Well done lads.
