Thoughts from France: South and Land of the Telepass

Monday we said goodbye to the most beautiful Gite we have ever visited and set off toward the Dordogne!

.our home for the last week in Brittany.



It was a long drive so we aimed to leave early, 9am ( well we are on our holiday ) as usual we didn’t quite reach that goal and we finally were on the road by about 9.30 am. 

Now I am a great believer in fate and we had not been going long when we hit a massive traffic jam. There had been a crash ahead, it must have been a big one as at least five Emergency vehicles went through. In Brittany there are not three lane motorways they have only two lanes and we were stationary. When the Emergency vehicles came through it was amazing how all the cars managed to part like the Red Sea.

Eventually we were all filtered off the Motorway and after an hour’s delay we were off! I believe we were lucky that we had left late as we could of been involved. 

 As we drove south the temperature rose and rose and by early afternoon we were in the 30s. The scenery changed too.

Land of the Telepass

We also entered the land of the Telepass. Last year I found I was not tall enough to reach the booths to put our card in to pay the toll it was not fun! So this year hubby invested in a Telepass. We got ours just before we left for holiday,activated it and attached it to our windscreen. 
We approached our first booth with trepidation! We edged up to the barrier very slowly. “It’s not working” hubby ever the pessimist. “Be brave”I said “go faster” he did . A ping sounded in the car and hooray it worked!

We were in the South and our Telepass was working! 

Our hosts home


Our home

We found our second destination without too much stress and had a warm welcome from our hosts, a parrot,ducks and chickens and two Dobermans ! 

Today we are resting  by the pool as tomorrow rain is forecast. So, ‘For tomorrow may rain so today we will soak up the sun!’ (Very nearly a Beatles quote)
