Salut de France!
All is going well during our early travels, no one seems bothered about checking our rail tickets but they seem to be working OK. We spent two nights in the heat and bustle of Paris staying in a youth hostel in the Montmartre region close to the Basilica Sacre-Coeur. Having visited central Paris we advanced on my Gran's house in Brittany. She in turn advanced on us with more food than we could possibly eat. It crossed our minds that we could just stay there for 3 months, but Bordeaux beckoned. Tomorrow we set off once again, this time to a campsite near Biarritz in the South-Westernmost corner of France. The walking is relentless mais telle est la vie des hommes..
Nick said that it wouldn't rain at all on this trip. It rained a little on Friday and heaved yesterday. Don't trust this man.
Not speaking French I can't understand what's going on. I think we're in Marseilles, you probably know better than me. Today we sat in the park and watched ducks mating, I was trying to eat lunch.
How much bread can you eat before serious constipation problems? I have eaten a lot.
I think we're going to beach it up big-time, Biarritz style tomorrow. I don't know what that is, but I'm assured it will be whack.
My French has improved. It is becoming easier to differentiate between threats and sausage.
Our hotel is clearly closed and there are no other guests.
Yours, puzzled and distressed,
