    La Rochelle

    February 17, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌫 7 °C

    So sad to leave Bordeaux this morning. Super foggy walk to the bus station but very refreshing. The bus was an hour late and I made it to La Rochelle only a half hour late. Checked into my beautiful room with memory foam bed and pillows and only 12 minutes from the Gare. Quickly went out to scope the city out! Wow, another amazing place. Reminds me a bit of Granville island and Lago di Garda Italy. Spotless, art studios everywhere and gorgeous scenery. I'm hoping to meet Corinne's aunt and uncle tomorrow so I can send her a recent photo. The air is so good here, just like Bordeaux. Found the Marche and they were selling fresh oysters for what I thought was a pretty good price. Can't wait to explore tomorrow. And.....this is now Cognac country not wine as I found many Cognac boutiques and Cognac is only 25km away from here.Read more

    La Rochelle opposite Vieux Port

    July 27, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We made it, it took 5hours, but because we had to get to the lock an hour before it opened we were up at 6:00! Obviously the French boat that was locking out with us could arrive just before it opened at 8:10. It was a lot wetter and windier than expected and in our faces for most of trip, we passed under the bridge to Isle de Re and when we arrived we went first into the big marina Port Minimes, until the Bassin de Chalutiers opened on the spring tide. We spent the afternoon sourcing a new impellor for the generator, success! And checking out where we dry out on Sunday for some running repairs, ( down playing the fact that the bow thruster sprung a leak and is now totalled so needs to be removed) a good afternoons work so off for an aperitif.Read more

    Day 10 - Pornic to La Rochelle (train)

    April 25, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 50 °F

    Made the tough decision this morning to not ride for a few days because of the issues I've had with my knee. Very frustrating as can still ride but know I'm making it worse and with over 8 weeks still left I know it's the sensible thing to do even if it is very frustrating.

    As a result and with it being a grey day I had a few chilled hours around the harbour of Pornic before jumping on the very quiet evening train to La Rochelle, a place I remember very vaguely from a family holiday years ago as a kid, to arrive after sunset and have a quick stroll round the harbour at night.

    Only real eventful thing to happen today was despite only riding 500 meters to the station from the harbour I did get my first wolf whistle. It was sadly off the French equivalant of a white van man but hey at 36 I'll take it!
