Natural Light

Somewhere over the Rue Barbes

Back to beautiful blue skies for our journey north...
A lovely journey on quiet autoroutes.

Travelling amongst the mountains...

And driving into them...

We like tunnels...

Weeee!!!

Back over the Millau Bridge.

A bit more interesting this time...

Into the Auvergne.

And villages on the tops of volcanos.

The most famous volcano - Le Puy-de-Dome.

Delightful ladies loos on autoroute picnic areas, with a choice of filthy toilet...

Or the more popular- hole in the floor! 
Yes, they are grippy foot plates to stop you from slipping... Wouldn't mind so much if they were clean, but I don't think I've ever found a clean public loo in France - roadside bushes are far superior!

We amazingly travelled 370 miles in under 6 hours, so arrived at Hotel Le Christina in Bourges mid afternoon.


Nice hotel, though a little cramped & walls like paper! 

Last night, had our favourite meal of the holiday at La Scala, then returned to the hotel for the worst night's sleep of the holiday - with sausages for pillows, loud drunks setting car alarms off, cavorting couples & rap music... 
Makes us appreciate the quaintness of La Redorte's hourly bells & Mairie announcements!

Looking forward to the peaceful hamlet we call home.

Kay :)
