Prieure de Saint-Remy to Menuet Chรขteau de Saumur ๐Ÿฐ Beautiful ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท The Loire River is where I spent most of my day ๐Ÿšตโ€โ™€๏ธ The Loire is the longest river in France at 1,006 Kms.

On this occasion a friend has offered the use of their caravan, in a barn, in the…

Waiting at the Brittany Ferries Cafe โ›ด๏ธ I noticed a fair few vehicles asked to turn round at the check-in kiosk. It could well be down to them not having the correct papers to board ie. statutory arrival forms to get back into the UK and a negative PCR test within 72 hours. You could easily get any of this wrong if not paying attention to the GOV UK website. Plus, not the most straightforward thing to find a PCR…
