Once you enter France by car and have just left Arras heading south, it is very stupid going out on the toll-road towards Paris. I prefer the country road, it is so picturesque. Besides, it will first bring me to Amiens, a quite lively university city with a gorgeous, very impressive, one of the "must-see" cathedrals in France. Then there is this old house of Jules Verne, the guy who circled the world in 80 days, remember? It is like a haj or pilgrimage for any traveler, I would say. The place has some fine promenades, inexpensive accommodation, lots of fun and establishments along the river and then you are off.
I will continue with the story once the whole itinerary is pin-mapped.
