    Base de Loisirs, La Ferté-Bernard

    April 28, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    More hours of driving today, broken up by a stop for lunch with a baguette from a baguette vending machine and a trip to a patisserie for some indulgent pastries and strawberry cream cake.

    Our stopover was a gravel car park beside a MacDonalds and a lake. Being a Saturday, it was pretty busy, but it was good to see people out enjoying themselves. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining as we strolled around the lake. There were bathing areas, artificial beaches, canoe launch points, both on the lake and the fast flowing river that ran adjacent to it and hosted a slalom course. There were even catamarans and stand up paddle boards stacked on the lakeshore, but the hut that displayed a very reasonable price list for their hire was closed. It turned rainy overnight so the idea of canoeing or sailing the following day became a lot less appealing.Read more

    Weiterfahrt nach Hillion Bretagne

    August 18, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Nach einem gemütlichen Frühstück, haben wir zusammengepackt und uns verabschiedet, alles problemlos.
    Um halb 11 sind wir los. Den ersten Rastplatz, den wir Gerso um 13 Uhr angefahren haben, haben wir gleich wieder verlassen, zu groß, zu voll, zu hässlich. Der nächste war in Ordnung und es gab ein Picknick auf der Motorhaube von Matthias‘ BMW.
    Die Fahrt hat sich noch ewig hingezogen mit km/h 80 auf der Landstraße und km/h 110 auf der Autobahn. Erst um 17.30 Uhr waren wir an unserem Haus in der Bretagne. Es ist riesig, ein richtiges Anwesen. Die Kinder waren zu Fuß am Meer, (es war Ebbe) während wir Frauen ausgepackt und die Männer eingekauft haben. Knapp vor Ladenschluss.
    Um 21 Uhr gab es endlich Schinkennudeln und anschließend ein Glaserl Wein 🍷 auf der Coach. Zum ersten Mal mussten wir innen sitzen, hier in der Bretagne ist es doch kühler und windiger...

    Baguettes

    June 12, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    In many ways it's amusing how much france is a stereotype of itself. People are carrying baguettes and eating croissants on the street everywhere you go. I've eaten - I don't know exactly - but AT LEAST one entire baguette every single day. I don't know what baguette to mile ratio is appropriate, but I suspect that mine is heavily skewed towards the baguette.

    Some towns are too small to sustain their own bakery. In one town I was in, the regional bread truck comes every morning to sell to all the small villages. This town has a freaking baguette VENDING MACHINE, filled daily by the baker in the next town over.
