We have finally managed to get away this year, following a couple of false starts due to unexpected work commitments & sudden extreme Winter weather.
And, now on our 6th day, I have finally managed to make a start on our blog. In my defence, up until yesterday evening we have been constantly driving and/or I’ve had quite a lot of work to be getting on with.
So, 900 miles later we have finally picked up at the point last year where we stopped heading South and turned Westward due to the heat. If all goes well you should be able to see our route in the photos below.
We are currently in the “largely undiscovered area of Matarraña, an area of abundant wildlife, medieval villages, waterfalls, rivers, and constant views of an ancient mountain range.” What’s not to love about that lot? We’re about to find out for ourselves.
But I’m getting ahead of myself, what of the last 5 days. My summary begins as follows, but please bear with us as we play catch-up:
• Evening boat to St Malo. Drove just South of Rennes to a pleasant aire at Messac overlooking a small marina on the Nantes Brest canal
• Day 1 – Made good progress South, then took a sudden executive decision to head across the Dordogne for a change of scenery. Completely coincidentally found ourselves outside the chateau in Charras which was where we stayed on our first ever French holiday as a family of 4. How strange was that? Kept on driving and overnighted at the beautiful town of Bourdeilles, right next to the river
More to follow shortly…
