Saturday 23rd September 2017 Home to Streatley, Berkshire (via uber diversions due to M3 closure which was caused by a “potential dangerous substance on the carriageway” which required a bomb disposal team and chums to sort out!) We had decided to pop away for a 4 night break to, above other things, try out Herself’s… Continue reading Four night escape!
18 days since returning from ‘Le Grand Trip’. Day 1 Ahh, there you are dear reader. Well we were desperate to get back on the road again, think we know a song about that!

Before we get there, we must do ‘Le Shopping!’ Okeydokey then, off we trot to E-Leclerc at Bayeaux. It was just like ‘supermarket sweep’, down the Vin du Caves aisle!!… Continue reading Day 47: Arromanches-les-Bains to Ouistreham
Starting to prep for home. Boring chores, clear out the fridge – our ’emergency’ bacon we brought over from the UK has gone out of date so we can’t torture other campers with the heavenly aroma of a good old English fry up! We’ve removed our freezer compartment as we didn’t really use it. It… Continue reading Day 46: Arromanches-les-Bains
