Well, what a hiatus that has been! Eight months, give or take. Everything seems to have changed SO much and to coin the phrase, the world is a very different place. Lockdowns and restrictions have kept me at home but the great news came last week that from Monday May 3rd, travel in France was once again allowed beyond the imposed 10kms.
Not one to sit upon my laurels, and mad keen to get away again in my pod, I opted for a short trip to a small rural campsite just 90 mins from home. The understatement has to be that it is quiet. Very! And lo and behold, I’m the only person here, so I have free reign. There is absolutely no need to worry about social distancing, no fears about using the facilities and catching any untoward viruses, and nobody else here when I have to be considerate of noise, lights, and Maggie (rarely) barking. I’m sounding selfish, but I DO like to have the place to myself!
So, I’m just outside a small town called Montguyon in the Charente-Maritime. I’m surrounded by trees, wildflowers and birds singing to burst their hearts. Beautiful.
With clear blue skies and 20c, what more could I want? Oh, I can hear something….I think it is a cork popping 🙂 Come back soon for more adventures.
