Dear Chaps, Chapesses,
Sorry, but there is no blog again this week (for the second week running) on account of my spending an inordinate amount of time in the car, trawling around various parts of France this week and sleeping at three different Ibis hotels in just three nights with check-ins averaging 7 pm and check-outs at 8 am.
The map below only indicates the estimated time it would take to travel the total distance we covered this week and obviously does NOT include any additional time spent stuck in various traffic jams around Lyon due to demonstrating farmers or time sucked up by that eternally contrary bitch, Paris or waiting for my husband to quickly ‘pop’ into a customer for ten minutes which actually turned out to be five+ hours.
I suppose I could have written all about it in a bloggy style but I decided it would have made for a decidedly boring post. It was boring enough having to live it, let alone having to read all about it!
So I have saved you from that particular mundane story.
We did, however, enjoy a very brief visit to Versailles home to the beautiful Royal Palace opened in 1682. Unfortunately, it was already 8 pm when we arrived and this is the only picture I got of it.
I’ll leave you to look it up for yourselves on Google image and I will endeavour to bring you something to read next week….. something worthy of your time.
