    Roussillon

    October 17 in France

    A few days ago we went to the town Roussillon, in Provence, and saw lots and lots of ochre rock formations and buildings. Ochre is a kind of clay, but when we saw it, it was bright orange, and dark red! All the buildings in Roussillon were obviously built out of mostly ochre, cause they were orange too! Something I noticed about the ochre sand was that it was super soft, and that it made your hands all orange! In Roussillon we went on a small hike called ‘Le sentier des ochres’ where we saw lots more ochre rock formations. After the hike, we were going to get ice cream, but all the ice cream stores there were closed, so we went to two other towns, and got the same result. We ended up going for ice cream the next day, in Arles, and we got to the store the day before they closed for the year, so they were almost all out of everything!

    Valencogne 25 km

    July 23, 2017 in France

    Wie ein Sonntagsspaziergang kam es mir heute vor, es fehlte leider nur noch das Kaffee mit Gipfeli. Mit Cafes oder Restaurants scheinen die Franzosen in den kleinen Dörfern nicht gesegnet worden. Wenn man jemandem Begegnet dann im Auto, oder man hört die Leute im Garten sprechen. Mir geht es sehr gut, habe mich langsam an den Ritmuss gewöhnt.
    Stehe in der Regel um 6 Uhr auf, mache Dehnungsübungen, etc dann 7 Uhr Frühstück.Read more

    Revel-Tourdan 25 km

    July 25, 2017 in France

    Kleine Idille gefunden. Eine gemütliche Pilgerstrecke wartete auf mich, inkl englischunterricht. Nach 10 km das erste Wow. Der Französische Pilgerverein hat uns mitten auf der Strecke mit Kaffee , Kuchen, Früchte und Schokolade überrascht. Der Regen hat mich wieder verschont. Jetzt 20 minuten nach Revel bin ich in einer Oase gelandet. Eine Familie verwöhnt uns mit Indienfood und einer Massage, was will man mehr.Read more

    Route Napoleon

    June 10, 2017 in France

    I couldn't wait to unleash my 54 horse power on this famous road. It was delightful with bend after bend on great roads and lots of hills. Perhaps not the best day to be asking a lot of Bluebelle as it was 33c and some of the passes took forever to climb in second gear.
    Before we got to the steep bits we had a big fright as we rounded a bend and found a tour bus overtaking a car with a trailer. The bus was completely on our side of the road heading straight for us. I braked hard and so did the bus and the car. Luckily I had about three feet of verge before a ditch and had to use it to miss the bus. The bus was completely to blame and I heard the horns of the car and several of the following cars. I really hope the bus driver was reported.
    We were overtaken by many motorcyclists as we made our way but one group of three were really out on their own on cornering, they were a joy to watch for the few bends I could see them.
    At one point I looked in my mirror and saw a classic car behind us, it had ribbons and flowers on it and behind it were around thirty cars all part of the wedding. They followed for about ten minutes and we exchanged waves and beeps then I thought I should stop and let them pass. As they passed every one of them beeped and waved enthusiastically. It was great fun.
    Tonight we are in a pretty little town outside Grenoble called Vizille the hotel is very cheap and across the road is the most amazing chateau with beautiful gardens. I will post some pictures of it and some Mandy took as we traveled.

    Historic Vienne

    September 29 in France

    This part of France became a Roman colony when Julius Caesar brought his army here in 47 BC. Though it had long been known that the Romans were here, excavations began in earnest at the beginning of the twentieth century. Now the ruins of a Roman forum, theater, odion and arches have been unearthed. One of the best preserved Roman temples is here as well. Vienne also figured prominently in church history. Now the church of St. Maurice is no longer a cathedral; the bishop now has his chair in Lyon. Things are now slowing down in Vienne. If it costs half as much to live in Lyon as Paris, it costs half as much to live in Vienne as Lyon. The picturesque beauty of this small city on the southern edge of the Beaujolais area is charming.Read more

    Ich hoffe Ihr seit nicht böse wenn ich eure Kommentare die ich sehr sehr gerne lese nicht beantworte. Wie Chris das Richtig erkannt hat ist es auch der Weg des schweigens.

    Doussard to Le Bourg d'Oisans

    July 13, 2017 in France

    (12th July, Rest day) Theday started with an early morning nature walk into the nearby marais. A beautiful shady track along the lake front and then into the marshes. Although we could hear plenty of bird life, they proved elusive to photograph. At one point on the lake, we came across a12th century tower that you could climb. Legend has it, a young man became ill and his father imprisoned him here. The doctors daughter fell in love with him and freed him.

    After packing up the camp, we picked up a few groceries and drove from Doussard to Le Bourg d'Oisans, at the foot of the mighty L'Alpe D'Huez. The scenery on the drive and surrounding the campground was stunning.
