France 2017

4  o'clock alarm, 4:45 set off, 9:30 arrive in Sevenoaks, Kent.




Somebody moved the M20 turning and we both missed it, so a detour and we arrived at the tunnel in time.


Once in France it was a simple drive to our hotel in Chartres, an IBIS City with a view of the cathedral from our room window. After a shower we walked in to the centre and had a drink followed by a walk around and something to eat. I had warm goat’s cheese salad followed by a seafood salad, Vals was a terrine and charcuterie and truffade. Drinks were pastis, rose wine and coffee to end.


Fed, we walked to the cathedral for the light show, and then around the town looking for and finding other shows. Eventually we returned to our room and slept well.
