France Part Eight, Le Fin – Champagne!!

The final knockings of our road and rail trip around France two years ago…..


  1. I am always perplexed by how French towns and villages can appear to be totally deserted!

    1. We stumbled on a place near Verdun Gorge in the mountain where every shop was shut and the whole place deserted. We drove on to the next village and noticed a large crowd in a field. It turned out it was the local final of the village pétanque shield between the deserted village and this one!

      1. I am absolutely not surprised by that story. Something similar happened to me in a village near Zamora near Spain and what was worse was the shop was shut and I couldn’t get any wine!
