Before I get on sharing some things we've seen with you - and we have seen some really beautiful sites, just a note on the mundane:
Alan fixed the shower head! We have a shower in the van again. :-)
We have had a reorganise and now are starting to know where things are. We still haven't named all the storage compartments yet. Any suggestions for a theme please add to the comments box!
The campsite in the Loire - where we are at the moment - had thieves come through it the night before last. They new what they were doing - and a couple of motorhomes got broken into and had electronic goods taken. We had a beach towel nicked and next door a pair of crocs, but they swept the camp and took van steps to reach up and slash 'pop up' material of vans and then towels to cover it. The gendarmes have been very thorough. We are absolutely fine and have a safe in the van which all the equipment goes into. The lovely older Dutch couple next to us were shaken up though. I gave the lady a hug and the husband a lesson in his new computer so he could email people.
This morning it is very peaceful in the campsite, which highlights the palaver of yesterday morning.
Our route to Cannes is sorted and we have contacted a few people to get volunteer work. We've also worked out where all the free campsites are along the way and are going to do a bit of wild camping.
