Chilli con carne in a Mr D’s Thermal cooker

Paris Motorhome Salon and heading home

From Giverny we headed back to the Paris Motorhome Salon which was taking place that weekend so we fancied a look.  They were offering overnight camping at the venue so we headed there early afternoon.  Chaos ensued as 100's of motorhomes' had descended on the area and were parked everywhere outside the venue.  We had read that the camping [...]

Monet Garden

Looking in our Aires books didn't give us any options near to Giverny or around the north west of Paris. This also means little or no services. Luckily we had read that motorhomes can stop over night in the Monet car park so we arrived around 4pm and sure enough we found the area adjacent to the coach [...]

Champagne in Champagne

Reims is the capital of the champagne region and doesn't it show it.  It has a beautiful gothic style cathedral and the town centre is filled with Tudor style wooden housing / shops of which quite a few are leaning in various directions.  Reims was beautiful even in the rain and we had a lovely wander around [...]
