Date of stay 30th March: Try saying that when you have had a glass of wine or two!  Completely in the middle of nowhere between Enkhuizen and our next stop which would be Bremen in Germany.  This is a small car park adjacent to a tourist information centre with an exhibition about the surrounding land.  It […]

Ship in a Bottle


Date of Stay 29th March 2018: Going North from Amsterdam this would be our next one night stay.  I knew nothing about it other than that it had a ‘Ship in Bottle’ museum with over 1,000 examples of these little miracles and a short video showing how it is done.  In terms of unusual museums this […]

Canal in the heart of Bruges

Bruges Belgian Beer and Chocolates

Date of Stay 26th March 2018: A short drive from Calais, we stayed one night at an Air in the South of Bruges.  Barrier entry and €19 per night including  6 amp electric.  Very close to the city, just a short bike ride and very bike friendly as you might expect. The sunshine and the […]

Excellent Bourne Facilities

Mery sur Cher

Date of stay August 7th: This is an excellent Aire de Service and an ideal stopover very close to the A71.  Officially there is a barrier and entry on payment of five euros but the barrier was raised when we arrived.  The Aire was almost full (including one caravan) but the alloted spaces were very large […]
