This year we are very lucky. As soon we arrived at our destination the weather turned good. The snowfall stopped and the sun is out every day. The pistes has been perfectly prepared and on this time of the year not to many tourists on the slopes. It turned colder again, the air is crispy clear and if it get’s too cold the next Apreś Ski bar is not to far away. Perfect.
We have safely arrived on our destination in Austria. The rest of the travel was a mix of rain and snow. Not ideal condition for driving but on the next day we had ideal weather to go skiing and enjoying the beautiful landscape in the mountains.
Yes, we on the road again. This time we travel to Austria. Our plan is to go skiing and we can be sure it will be enough snow this time.
We have set up very early to catch our train from Folkstone to Callais which was painless as usual.
No snow yet?
Eurotunnel, fast and easy crossing to France
We have left Andorra la Vella heading north in to France via Ax-les-Thermes and Foix to Toulouse. We stopped over night outside Toulouse before we continued our trip. We passed by Montauban, Agen, Villeneuve-sur-Lot again and reached Bergerac on a beautiful day.

We like to drive the scenic route from Barcelona to France via Andorra in the Pyrenees. This takes less then 3 hours via the Autopista de Monteserrat. Andorra la Vella is the capital of Andorra and is famous for shopping and of course for cheap fuel.
A quick stop south of the border to Andorra.
Duty free Shops lining Meritxell Avenue.
Casas or Chalets in Andorra.
To visit Barcelona and titled “Vacance en France” is not exactly correct, as everybody knows Barcelona is in Spain. This was a spontaneous idea after we left Cap d’Adge to visit another place and we made the decision to heading south in to Spain. Anyway this is only a 3 hour drive and we camped in El Masnou, just north of Barcelona. Very convenient for us as a short walk from the campsite is a train station which where the trains running every 20 minutes or so to the City. Perfect.
Back on the El Masnou Campsite preparing evening supper.
We left the beautiful village Rocamdour and was heading south east to the Mediterranean sea. We traveled via Figeac and Rodez to the well known town of Milleau with the famous Bridge. Passed by Clermont l’Herault before arriving on our planned destination of Cap d’Adge. The weather was perfect. We could not ask for anything more.
Cloudy day but did not prevent us to go sailing.
Rocamadour, with the monastic buildings in the LOT department, Occitanie. It is in the Parc Naturel Régional des Causses du Quercy, well worth the visit. Very Popular by Tourists but with only a population of 600. We have spend a couple of days in this beautiful Village. We had a great time well worth the visit.

A long name for a small but cheerfully Campsite. This site is in walking distance of the beautiful Village of Rocamadour. I’m not surprised when everyone says, go to l’Hospitalet for the best views of the village in its entirety.
The Campsite is directly on the main street of l’Hospitalet and includes a Hotel, free WIFI and a swimming pool.
The french way of life, keep camping simple but take the fridge with you for a nice cold drink.
