View Full Version : Viva La France!

23rd July 2014, 20:12
… Well hopefully I shall be spending the next few weeks in the Vendee region of France. Not quite as mobile as I was last year, and a few more obstacles to overcome. However, I am sure a few cheeky glasses will be consumed… Accompanied by croissants and mussels (however, not together!).
Take care, keep well, God bless.

Hi Pete,

Way to go, I hope you enjoy it ,and the weather is kind to you, it has been quite a few years now but we spent two weeks driving around Europe ,went to so many countries and have to admit ,Italy was my favourite ,but France came a very close second. All those miles in a ford escort Mexico !! Now that takes you back a bit be honest.
Have a great time

Pete ,the other one.

:) I went there a long time ago, i must have been 26yrs old. I met so many beautiful local people, i still remember Madame Cantin and the food! it was July, so was boiling hot. You have a great time Pete, you can tackle those obstacles or skip them.

Happy holidays

Hi Pete,
Have been to St Gilles Croix de Vie in the Vendee, 6 times for summer holidays and just love it! Fond memories of the moules, preceded by a Kir Royale, of course.
