    Gently does it

    May 22, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Short ride to to lunch then lodgings. Also checked country road speed limit and it is 80, (erk) although many don’t obey it. 110 for divided (almost) motorways and 130 for motorways.

    I'm assuming 'relics ' refers to the wine barrels?

    Checked out the apartment market here. Interesting. Staying in our hosts’ mother’s house. Beautiful town.

    Similar arch to the Harbour Bridge. Here the vivid lasers are rehearsing across the sky. Vivid opens on Friday night.

    Eurovision

    May 18, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    Quiet day. Noisy night. Now know a little about Eurovision and that’s enough. Fun party though.

    i have been missing in action for a week, a heavy cold, but have just spent some lovely time catching up with your last few days. Gorgeous countryside you've been through, punctuated i see by stunning food. Now, about Eurovision....did no-one vote for Great Britain because no european wanted to vote for a country that doesnt want to be in Europe, or was it just a crap song?

    I am so happy that the contest is so engaging and exciting. Dress ups look like fun too

    First to the bike shops - 5 or so all lined up together. Then the big machines. Later another lovely welcoming dinner.

    Motorways

    May 15, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Several kilometres today to get us closer to Toulouse. Nearly lost a credit card in the toll booth. Held up many cars until a maintenance man came. Next section didn’t receive a toll ticket then had to try to explain. Caused another blockage.
    Also got overtaken many times when we were doing the legal 130kph. Madness.

    Looking at the size of your value meal I can tell you’re not in Japan.

    And in the bowl was hot Camembert. Must have been low fat

    Actually there is a bit of Japan there with the rectangular shaped plate. And I spy a healthy salad.
