... A bit of a driving day a about 230 km . Dinan a small town on the way , with excellent ramparts, provided an early break from driving , old half timbered houses and a picturesque port made for a pleasant 90 minute stop .

But the route was pretty well marked, taking us past small villages and houses beside fields of sunflowers or grapes ...
... to Orleans - it is self service. The Tours stop was straight forward - the connecting bus was only over 1 bay. Not too long a wait. About 30 min into the next journey there was a driver swap. The first leg had been driven by an older gentleman and we now had a very dapper looking guy - pink striped shirt, dog tag necklace, bracelets and a dashing vest topped off with white patent pointed shoes. At Chateauroux I asked the ...
