    Saint Omer

    July 2, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    This is a lovely town less than an hour from Calais from where I will get the ferry back to England tomorrow morning.
    I had a long ride today which wasn't as nice as yesterday but it was ok. The weather was perfect and the roads where not busy.
    If you get the chance to visit Saint Omer I recommend it especially if you like churches as the cathedral here is lovely.

    I met a couple who staying at this hotel and are from Yorkshire riding a Triumph motorcycle. We had a meal together and a good chat. They catch the ferry to Hull tomorrow evening.
    So this is the last hotel and tomorrow I will be home in time for tea. It will feel strange I'm sure. I've got so used to this life on the road. It'll be nice to be home again. Apart from the obvious missing Mandy and Robert I said I'd really like a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. Two things I haven't had in a long time.
    I will write one more post summing things up in a couple of days.

    Saint Omer near Calais

    June 8, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    The weather started warm as we left the vine laden hills of the champagne region. The huge factories of Moet & Chandon was the biggest then as we headed north the sky misted over and it got cooler. We stopped in a rest area to put on jumpers and got talking to two English motorcyclists who had also stopped to don warmer clothing. An hour later we meet them again when we stopped for a coffee at a motorway service station. One of them told me how he once drove a 1960's Bedford van to South Africa. They were catching an evening euro train and we decided to stop overnight and see Saint-Omer which is surprisingly nice with a magnificent cathedral and lots of restaurants and interesting looking shops.
    Tomorrow if all continues to go well we should get home and when we do I intend to give a summary of the trip.
