France is getting Closer!

Not the country - just our week away in the motorhome ;-)

I really must try and get round to sorting out some kind of route, but work has been non-stop again and by the time I get home in the evening I am too tired to do anything apart from eat my dinner and then relax for an hour or so and then go to bed ready for another day at work!!!

I roughly have an idea of where we are going. To start with we are going down the west side of France which I believe will take us through the Contenin area. We have not travelled west before (having always driven down the Centre or Eastern side en route to Spain) and I have heard such good reports of the welcome you get within these areas.

I have also continued with my Spanish/French lessons. I listen to Spanish in the morning en route and French in the evenings on my return journey. I'm beginning to get the hang of it and not get confused between the two languages. Unfortunately I have to admit that level-wise I am probably intermediate with Spanish but definitely beginner with French! I learnt French at school and had hoped that by some kind of miracle it would all come flooding back into my memory - some hope; guess my schooldays are too far in the past!!!
