After Paris, Heading South

We’re looking forward to being back in Paris in October, but we have the whole of the summer ahead of us! Quelle chance!!

Road not wide enough for a combine harvester ... AND us!

Road not wide enough for a combine harvester … AND us!

A nightmare getting away from Paris, 2 hours to navigate through the city and the peripherique (the inner ring road of Paris) in nose to tail traffic. What a relief to be once more in the countryside – blue skies, small roads, very little traffic (except for the odd agricultural machine taking up the whole road!). The wheat fields look amazing, and we’re starting to see fields of sunflowers, they look glorious.  About 5.30 p.m. we thought we should start looking for somewhere to stay (not like when we’re on tour, when everything is VERY organised!). We looked on our TomTom (Satnav), which has fondly – and sometimes not so fondly – been known as “Jane”, and found an auberge (inn) not too far away. And thus we ended up at La Bonne Auberge in a tiny hamlet called Nauzerines. What a find! The season hasn’t started yet, so there were only 2 couples booked in. We had a big room overlooking the square and had our meal in their garden across the road – such a peaceful setting, good food, wine, bird song – a perfect end to a day of travel.
