    Default 1400 Mile Round Trip...

    Just got back from France and boy am I glad I fixed the Aircon. It was between 30 and 36 degree in the Loire and we all had a great time.

    I really enjoyed driving on the other side of the road and had to remind myself to drive on the left when we got off the ferry when we got home.

    The car never missed a beat in both the 12 hours drives, shame the kids weren't so well behaved

    A place called Onzain, in between Tours and Blois. I wanted to stay and I'm normally ready to come home after 10 days.

    Typically the V6 engines have a different model of pump - only one I can find anywhere...

    I know the French are a bit backwards mate, but they do have hotels AND, I believe, electricity...

    I had to literally laugh out loud!! We've done it a few times now but we head right down south to a place called Cap D'Agde, long old drive but we get to go over the Milau bridge so it's worth it!!

    And I will say I am a woman who likes her luxuries too and the hairdryer and straighteners will be coming to Billing!
