... and always the wrong way!), it was great being able to get out into the country to see some of the smaller villages and towns. But it's also nice to be back staying in the middle of town so that walks in the evening are possible, and we don't have to drive after eating and drinking.

After this we made our way to Limoges where we were staying for the night.
In the evening we went for a Chinese 'eat all you can' buffet. And we did!
