Fun in France!

 Firstly, we apologise for not keeping up with our blog posts, we sort of got side tracked, but we promise to try to keep more active on here for you all!

So our last blog post introduced HooHoo, and then took us to France. Well we made it to France for my birthday (Stacey was a tad jealous!) and we enjoyed getting drunk with some locals who spoke a little bit of English, and with my little bit of French, we somehow met in the middle.. either that or it was the 7% beer I was drinking!! Plus then we were given homemade raspberry liquor, or Stacey was anyway!!

Anyways, our highlights of France include going to the city of love, Paris, for our 7th year anniversary. No better place really to be. We got the train in and enjoyed a late croissant and pastry breakfast, a few steps from the Eiffel Tower. We then did some more sightseeing, breaking it up with often bar stops (mostly just to be able to take our mask off due to Covid), and eating lovely food. It was such a great day that we popped back the following afternoon to re do some bits!

My brother also drove down for a weekend visit from Luxembourg!!

We also enjoyed going around the small towns in France, including Combourg, where we enjoyed their castle, La Rochelle with their many pink umbrellas for breast cancer, and of course, we had a glass or two of Bordeaux in Bordeaux!

Vitre in France was a town where we locked ourselves out of HooHoo, and tried calling the breakdown people, but instead the receptionist at the campsite we were staying at knew a mechanic who popped out within half an hour to let us back in to our Honda! He was so kind and didn’t want anything for it but of course we gave him some beer money for his troubles!!
So France was definitely an action packed travel, but the weather started to get miserable, and when you are in a roof tent, there’s nothing better than the sunshine, so we headed to Spain………
