Day 7 - France

Day 7 – Sunday 18th July 2010 - Luxembourg to France
Luxembourg, Paris, Versailles

Last night was our first experience at Truck Stop parking. A little nervous at first, we circled the whole Truck Stop a couple of times looking for a place to snuggle in between the large rigs. Barnaby spotted another caravan and so parked behind them where he felt safe and secure.

So after a luxurious night at Luxembourg’s finest Truck Stop (it had great Facilities including good Showers) we headed for Paris.

Driving through France towards Paris the fields were littered with Sunflowers, Sunflowers, and more Sunflowers, a beautiful sight to see and we couldn’t resist taking photos, photos and more photos...

The driving once in Paris was intense, and not too easy to navigate through.  Maybe Paris was a gentle introduction to what may be in store from the drivers in India / Iran / Pakistan?

Escaping to nearby Versailles the traffic calmed down and are eyes were peeled looking for signs of campsites. Finally we found one after hours of circling Versailles, it was expensive and it was full! Argghhh! – Fortunately they directed us to a Campsite on the other side of Versailles, next to the Chateaux and cheap too!
