    Port Saint Avertin (2)

    August 7, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    France and August....outside the main cities everybody takes a couple of weeks holiday, almost impossible to find an open shop on a weekend. Shouldn't complain the weather is perfect at the moment (maybe too warm?) so I'd take time off too if I could - hang on, I have.

    Took a ride through the country side, not that busy on the smaller "B" roads which is just well. Driving through small towns can be an experience, the streets sometimes just blend into each other and trafic lights can be hard to read - small and if you pull up at the stop line you can't see them at all, thank god for the helpful french drivers (and their horns) behind you letting you know when it's time to go.

    Some pics of a river and me.......

    Off to Caen tomorrow, then Amiens.

    Cheers

    Port Saint Avertin

    August 6, 2016 in France ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Hey.....finally picked up my bike this aftetnoon. There's a pic of it looking down from my hotel window and a pic of the luggage in my room. Laurent (Ride in Tours who found and organised the bike for me) was just fantastic, even picked me up at the station. Took the fast train from Paris as you can see by the speed pic.

    This has to be the cutest town on the planet - had lunch with 3 little old French ladies (at least 80) at a fair I stumbled on (they even tried to get me to dance but then suggested I sit down after they saw my moves!!!)

    Will have a ride around the area tomorrow to get used to the bike, and riding on the right - that first roundabout is a heart stopper.

    2 nights here then off to Caen.

    Cheers...

    Tours, Le Cher

    March 30 in France ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Am Ortsausgang von Tours werden die Pilger verabschiedet. Die Abzweigung des Eurovelo 3 nach Süden ist leider nicht ausgeschildert: Hinter dem Hafenbecken geht es vom Deich ab. Nicht dem Jakobsweg-Schild an der Loire lang folgen, denn dies wäre der Rückweg über Orleans nach Paris.

    Tours

    June 5, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌫 16 °C

    5.6.2018 Nach dem Frühstück alles eingeräumt und verpackt und weiter über die Brücke aufs Festland. Auf den Strassen kein grosser Betrieb und so kamen wir gemütlich über Poitiers nach Tours, wobei der Camping Platz in Saint Avertin steht mit dem Namen"Tours Val de Loire" etwa 4 km von der Altstadt von Tours. Wir haben uns einen schönenPlatz ausgesucht und uns gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Umgebung mit den Loire Schlösser natürlich einmalig. Vor Jahren waren Hedy und ich schon mal im Tal aber da haben sie erst angefangen Velo Wege zu bauen, jetzt schauen wir mal und freuen uns auf was da kommt.Read more
