France used to be cheap. Now it is more or less the same cost as the UK (some things cheaper, others more expensive).
There is better weather, less traffic, they're much more welcoming of motorhomes and tolerant of cyclists.
After a whie you get used to travelling at 80kph and enjoy the extra time to view the scenery.
We can certainly agree with those who prefer to travel alone..
We're easily led astray by brown signs,or people we meet, en route.
It wouldn't be fun, if we had to negotiate with our travelling companions at every deviation from the planned route.
Due to the lack of availability on ferries to North Spain , we were stuck with Portsmouth to Caen.
We'd decided to miss France out, as it's getting complicated and expensive.
We hit the toll roads , spending the ferry fare savings. Only coming off to overnight.
One supermarket stop, One fuel stop, a couple of tabac stops, for coffee, ( and Calvados, for the co-pilot ),and a flutter on the online lottery.
After one laundrette stop, that was all the spending we did... Apart from a day at Puy Du Fou.... That was the Bonus.
But , for us, France has probably had it's day...
We'll spin a coin, when planning our return journey.
Off to the Dordogne for three weeks on Sunday.
One extra Brit to clog up the place.
Not sure I will be able to manage £500 for three weeks but will be well under £1000.
We did stay put at Gruissan aire for three weeks at 9 euro per night but it would cost same in fuel for three weeks or six weeks
