Day 449 – Friday 31st May 2019
A banging hot day and time to make our way back to England. Packed up and drove the 3 hours to Avignon. We used toll roads because the N roads and the D roads to Aix-en-Provence are an absolute pain in the arse; £30 well spent.
It was 28°c when we arrived at the site in Avignon so the aircon went on straight away. Bliss 😀 Cfor was quickly out of the door for an explore. He has a routine for new sites. The fat boy barrels down the steps, gives the place a quick one two then goes under the van while he gets his bearings.
Later we walked the short distance into Avignon, it was still very hot at 5pm.
Avignon is a beautiful old French town on the banks of the Rhone and has a beautiful town square and a lovely little park towards the train station.
Day 450 – Saturday 1st June 2019
Another banging hot day. Used N & D roads to get to Macon, took slightly over 6 hours to do about 200 miles.
It was 28°c again when we arrived in Macon.
Day 451 – Sunday 2nd June 2019
Hotter than banging today. It would have taken 6½ hours to make today’s journey on N & D roads so we took the toll road all the way to Chalons-en-Champagne. With just a 100 yards or so to campsite Doris decided to send us round a housing estate! Brilliant.
The actual town of Chalons-en-Champagne looked fabulous as we drove by it but as it’s 32°c outside I’m sticking close to the aircon. Looking forward to some Reigate rain 😀
Day 452 – Monday 3rd June 2019
An overcast day 😀 Took the toll roads to Comines near the Belgium border.
Day 453 – Tuesday 4th June 2019
A bright start to the day. Made our way to Cite Europe just outside Calais.
Day 454 – Wednesday 5th June 2019
Up early and to the ferry.
Chips eaten it was time to start my to do list; I was still mowing the lawn at nearly 10pm
Day 455 – Thursday 6th June 2019
A bright day so I carried on with the garden. After a couple of hours cutting hedges I reckoned I deserved another portion of chips!
Only another 8½ pages of my To Do list to go! 🙁
