Where I stayed
Motor way truck stop

Flag of France  , Aquitaine,
Saturday, October 3, 2009

Before leaving home we confirmed that we were covered in Europe for breakdown with the AA!...WRONG!...  This morning..No start....Covered?  NOT!  What?...Frantic calls begin.  Customer service? our people?...No Chance!..Your lost in France?..Your problem!!

Any way....5 hours later....Nice man from Herman's auto recovery tells us Dodgy Battery but give 168E and I'll get vous off...Ooh la la....C'est-la-vie....We're off. Found out later ther was nothing wrong with the battery. We had a new alternator fitted before leaving and the garage had not switched the isolator back on so we instead of using the liesure battery to power the lights last night we had drained the main battery...Mn Dieu!

We got as far as the North of Bordeaux, Decide to pull in at motor way service station Truck stop...there a pattern forming here.  Pair of silly truckers or something that rhymes like that.....

Well...Hospitable or what?  We can't fault this....Plat de jour...For 12E pp again three course quality menu with as much wine as you can drink.....Bon appetite...Food and service excellent.  You couldn't ask for anything better!!

Bon nuit....
