It’s been 3 years since we last took the caravan abroad, having limited ourselves to short trips in England since John’s heart problems. We finally felt ready to try something more adventurous, although nothing on the scale of
our previous travels. Many times in the past France has been a country we simply travelled through to get somewhere more exotic, but this time we decided to head for the Dordogne, an area we last visited 35 years ago when the children were small and
we stayed in a Canvas Holidays ready-erected tent.
We set off at the end of May, the day after the Bank Holiday. I’d spent the previous week making lists and ticking things off as we packed them – last year, when we went to Norfolk, we forgot
several important items! As usual we used our accumulated Tesco vouchers to pay for the Eurotunnel tickets, and found the journey quick and easy. The French roads were a joy – not much traffic, and no pot holes!
