First off, apologies for the delayed updates. Lack of a decent 'Net signal is partly to blame, along with us having to make an earlier than scheduled return to Blighty. Bear with me....all will be revealed in due course. Anyhow, where were we? Ah, yes, we were heading up the Col Des Aravis for a … Continue reading From The Highs Of The French Alps To The Lows Of Moriarty’s Demise.
After our week of Grand Massif meanderings, on Tuesday morning last week ,we finally headed for pastures new, in the shape of Passy-Plaine-Joux - a small ski resort, popular in the summer with hikers, bikers and parapenters due to it’s absolutely awesome location! Half way up a mountainside, at 1360m, the resort has had the … Continue reading The Awesome Wonders Of The Mont Blanc Range From Several Different Angles!
On Monday morning, we finally managed to drag ourselves away from Les Gets and took the picturesque Route Des Grandes Alpes down to Cluses to stock-up on food, drink, LPG and diesel. Chores done, we drove the short distance up to Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval in The Grand Massif. One of France's official prettiest villages, Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval certainly warrants this award … Continue reading A Week Of Meandering In The Grand Massif – Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, Samoëns And Morillon.
After all the heavy-duty mountain pass driving over the last few weeks, Team Sebo decided to give Sebo (and his driver!) a well-earned rest once we got back into France. The drive down from Gstaad was pleasant enough and, as we reached Lake Leman, the countryside became much more French-looking. The chateau at Aigle was … Continue reading Lazing In Les Gets, Haute Savoie, For A Whole Week!
The thunderstorm and rain, which we've been expecting for the last couple of days, finally arrived today so our planned walk along the coast to Plat has had to be postponed for a few hours. Team Sebo busied themselves with domestic chores and a long overdue updating of our trusty old map. When I say … Continue reading Our Journey So Far…..
After a pre-departure Sebo clean-up and filling-up or freshwater tanks, Team Sebo hit the road once again. Having consulted Google Maps for the least twisting way back down (something we should have done before we climbed up here - Roy is still suffering from a single track, windy road, type PTSD condition, I fear!), we … Continue reading Mamma Mia, Team Sebo Hits Italia! Ciao!
We had, possibly, THE most relaxing three days we've had this trip so far at Le Devancon, Peynier. We slept like logs - until quite late in the day, we have to admit, even by our standards-then spent our days walking in the hills and generally lazing around in our deckchairs, making the most of … Continue reading Provence To The Riviera – Poles Apart!
After all the furore of the previous evening, neither of us had a particularly restful night's sleep - more due to the traffic rumbling over the bridge beside us than from the evening's events. Nonetheless, we arose, breakfasted and set-off for Aix-en-Provence to locate a supermarket and have a spot of lunch. Well, THAT was … Continue reading Peace And Tranquillity Reigns In Provence
So, to answer the question "What happened in Arles?".......here goes. All was going well, us having had a very pleasant afternoon strolling around the town and people watching whilst partaking of a drop of the local wine, sitting in the sunshine, with hardly a care in The World. From then on, it was all downhill....well, … Continue reading What Happens In Arles…..Doesn’t Necessarily Have To Stay In Arles!
We had a bit of a "lazy" weekend in Elne - apart from our mammoth 14km schlepp to St Cyprien, via the beach, to locate a supermarket which we didn't find until the following day (just for the record, it turned-out to be a five minute walk out of the front entrance to the campsite!!! … Continue reading Cruising La Camargue And A Date With Vincent Van Gogh In Arles
