The Journey So Far


So. this has been the journey so far:
3,500 miles
84 hours riding time

The Journey Home

We are now heading home through France. We are aiming to spend six days with our friends Kevin and Louise at their beautiful place near Pontivy in Brittany. It's worth a visit. Here is a link to Great Brittany Holidays web site. Their place is called Le Clezio.
By coincidence our friends Neil and Amanda are in the same area at the same time (what's the chances), So it looks like I may be forced to drink more wine than I am accustomed to!

Our intended route is through the Vosges Mountains and then to follow the Loire Valley west,spending some time visiting the some of the great Ch√Ęteaus along the way.

If all goes well, we will be catching the St Malo to Portsmouth ferry at the end of July.

And Finally

Mrs G and I hope you have enjoyed this blog. Our intention was not to treat it as a travel log, but more as a collection of our thoughts and observations. I have been really surprised at the viewings. There have literally been hundreds and hundreds of you viewing the blog. However, it was written primarily for my parents-in-law, who I know enjoy following our travels.

Thank you again. Especially for the encouraging comments from our friends and family.

Ride Safe

Hi M, A and the B,
I've really enjoyed following your blog. It has taken my mind off the shocking weather we are suffering back here in the UK. Your route would make a wonderful extended ride out for NAM. It might require an earlier start than our usual Sunday ride, and we would need to schedule it for around the 20th of June, to make use of the extra light.
See you soon.
