Welcome to the Grahams on Tour

96 miles, 25.4 mpg

After Giveny we decided to head to a campsite we'd used many times before in the forest east of Paris, called Les 4 Vents. It's a lovely site, with big grassy pitches, and a nice place to relax for a couple of nights. Other than some grocery shopping...

105 miles, 23.7 mpg

Monet is a favourite artist of both Fiona and I so one of the places we'd wanted to visit on this trip was his house at Giverny. As it turns out motorhomes are allowed to overnight in the car-park there were skirted Paris (never fun) and headed up th...

324 miles, 21.3 mpg

With time fast running out on our trip there was a need to continue to head north so we decided to put a good few miles in and head to an Aire we know and like at the medieval town of Provins, to the east of Paris. 

Provins is normally a paid Aire, wi...

204 miles, 25.6 mpg

From Lourdes there was only really one place we were going to go next and that was to what's probably Fiona's favourite town in France - Sarlat. We've been here several times before and really liked it, so were looking forward to visiting again. 

Prev...

Leaving the Aire at Asco it was a long and gentle climb up into the Pyrenees to get to Andorra, somewhere neither Fiona or I had been to before. The scenery on the drive was lovely and I've marked the Pyrenees down as yet another place to spend more...

The weather was back to hot and sunny today - very hot and sunny in fact. Our campsite is a couple of miles outside of Biarritz but although there was a bus available directly outside we decided to stroll into town instead. Biarritz looks a very moneyed town with an in...

Today we said goodbye to the Dordogne and instead decided to wander down to Biarritz, just short of the Spanish border. We'd had a recommendation from the France Camping group on Facebook for a campsite called Pavilion Royal in Bidart, just a couple of miles along the...

Today was always going to be another scorcher with blue skies and 31C temperature - a far cry from the UK which was suffering under storm Ali. We'd decided to use the little motorbike again today, this time to visit the famous wine making town of Sainte Emilion which w...

September 19, 2018

We'd decided to mostly just chill out locally today but I got the motorbike out so we could a faster start tomorrow. Once again the battery was flat, which is odd on a brand new bike after just a week or so of non-use. Anyway I charged it up again and did a few explora...

September 18, 2018

203 miles, 26.9mpg (a new best!)

For once we were up and out at a reasonable time - 08:30 or so - to continue the trip towards Bordeaux. We'd a couple of ideas for sites near there - also from facebook recommendations, eventually deciding to head to one about 20 miles o...
