Another day driving south, the sat nav said 231 miles when we turned it on. However when it worked out the route is was 313!! Why do Garmin sat navs show the distance as the crow flys? Is there a big market for crows buying sat navs????
Anyway we bought a freshly baked baguette 🥖 croissants 🥐 and my fav pain us chocolat, then we were on our way.
It was quite an uneventful trip down the French motorway 🛣 well that was until we had to pay the peage OVER 90 euros!!!!! That was more than the cost of the fuel we used! We have been to France a few times and it doesn’t seem to matter when we go August, June or October it’s closed! The motorways are empty, I can understand why. The restaurants and bars are either derelict or just closed. We would have eaten out if anywhere was open. The only place we can find open is MacDonalds!! Not doing that!! So it’s find a shop, the only ones open were the super markets buy some cheese, ham and of course wine then chill in the camper.

Tonight we are camping by a lake in the french alps it is stunning. Tomorrow we have 150 miles or 88 if you’re a crow 😂😂 the boys and Kayleigh are flying into Nice then getting trains to meet us. It will be an early night before we head to Monaco 🇲🇨 on Tuesday to continue our bike 🚲 to Africa.
