House Status Because everyone wants to know what the status with our new house is, here's an update. …

France Day 23 This concludes our three week campervan vacation in France. We had breakfast at the hotel in the morning, took a taxi to the airport and had an uneventful flight back home. Kudos to you if you read all the entries ;-)…

France Day 22 We got up early to pack the last stuff, empty the tanks a last time and make the van ready for return. We also had breakfast eating most of our remaining food. We did another gas stop and then returned to the rental station. After the formalities we took a taxi to our hotel in Nantes.…

France Day 21 We took our time to get ready and have breakfast which was good because there was quite the queue at the dump station. This was our last day and the goal was to end it close to Nantes. But of course there was time to have another sightseeing. We picked Rennes for that.…

France Day 20 The night was probably the quietest we had for the last few weeks. The RV area was located in a residential area, no big streets, no harbour, no air traffic. We woke up relatively early anyway and started with breakfast and the usual dump/refill.…

France Day 19 We woke up early but then turned around and slept a little more before having breakfast with eggs and salmon. Since our parking spot had no dump station we left half full. Our first stop was Pont-Aven. A nice little town with a lot of galleries. We had a look at a few stores but then moved on.…

France Day 18 We woke up relatively late and I quickly went over to the reception to pick up the croissants we had ordered the evening before. We had breakfast in bed before we started the day with dumping/refill. Just a few villages from the campground away we had another supermarket stop before we made our way toward a Neolithic cairn site. Halfway there I noticed that this cairn is actually located on an island and requires booking well in advance. That was a bit disappointing.…

France Day 17 We left the camping area after breakfast and the daily dump/refill. Our first goal came via Atlas Obscura again: the "Serpent d'océan". It's an art installation depicting the skeleton of a snake located in the Loire delta. It's a fun photo spot. At the other side of the river are the docks of Saint-Nazaire which was our next goal as there are several attractions there. Our primary objective being the Terrasse Panoramique which should have given us a view on another…

France Day 16 We woke up after a horrible night. A spot behind the dunes with no big road or a town should have been the quietest place possible. Unfortunately somewhere not too far away must have had been some kind of night club or party venue and we heard the bass of techno music late into the night. It only stopped to be replaced by the sound of sirens. We're not sure if those were part of the…

France Day 15 We skipped breakfast and left right after dumping/refill. We had no real goal except for a vague “go north along the coast”. We weren't driving for long when we came through little town of Talmont. What a difference to the abandoned villages of yesterday. This one was full of people and stores. One thing caught our eye: a market hall. We parked and started to explore the town.…
