The weather at Payolle was dull and cloudy as we packed up to move back towards Villemagne. We are parking with the Weedons so that we can go to the American festival in Castel.
We headed for a cheap campsite in Montréjean. €12 a night gives us electricity, water and dump. It was a pleasant location, and although the pitches were tight for us, we had a couple of days to explore the area around St Gaudens. Lots of supermarkets and ...

Unsurpassed views of glaciers and other mountain peaks await us, but our real reward is getting to the top of a climb which ...
10.30hrs. Leaving our rest home and heading south to Lourdes. Some 200 miles. The town of hope, healing and prayer. Great journey through the countryside. Fab to drive as roads great. No heavy traffic on the country roads. Cant get over how vast the country is. Very friendly and fun to share a laugh with. Pit stop for lunch in a small town. First one we ...
