A 2,000 + mile journey around France through fields of sunflowers, medieval cities, high mountain passes and pastures, the verges in full flower admiring the seemingly endless countryside that is France.
Tasting the regional cheeses and meats, and sipping chilled Rose.
Crossing and following the major rivers – the Rhone, the Dordogne, the Vienne, the Charente, the Loire and the Seine.
Through gorges, ancient forests, and up into the Alps to catch glimpses of mt Blanc.
Some of it in 40 degree heat in an old and noisy banger without air-con.
