Day 14 - MaxRelax - Le Mans

rain 19 °C

We got into Le Mans very late last night after getting lost.....oh...we were using a GPS!!! haha So when we woke up the morning and it was overcast we decided very quickly that this would be a regroup day. It just so happened we found an amazingly beautiful hotel for about 35.00 E with a kitchenette, so we thought this would be the best place to update our budget and rest our bodies. Plus we needed some time to research the next three stops left in France; the Lorie Valley, Bordeaux and the Pyrenees.

Day 16 - Oct 1st Lorie Valley - Town on Savonnieres

sunny 25 °C

Savonnieres was a quintessential French Village, a church, a bakery, a small school. I the morning everyone heads to the bakery to pick up the morning bread...it MUST be fresh. The town though had the most beautiful river with lots of fish. I was one of our favorite bits of France.

Day 17 - Portiers ~~ Bordeaux

sunny 23 °C

Bordeaux France is on our top three places we saw on Leg #1

The people are so fashionable, the city is very quiet ( no car horns) and believe it or not very little cell phone use.

HERE IS WHAT I SAW TODAY

THIS IS AN INGENIOUS IDEA....BUILD A WATER FEATURE TO REFLECT THE AMAZING LANDSCAPE NEARBY!

Day 18 - Bike tour

sunny 25 °C

Took the morning to prep for the Pyrenees Mountain hike....then we rented bikes and did a great ride through the wine region of Bordeaux. This was the day we realized we are going to Lourdes - the very catholic healing place - then I realized I lost my wallet with everything in it...everything...credit cards, Nexus pass, drivers license.........cash...! Got it back. WOW!

HERE IS WHAT THE BIKE RIDE LOOKED LIKE AND WHAT YOU CAN EAT AFTER BIKING FOR A DAY!20141003_162058.jpg20141003_160247.jpg20141003_180221.jpg20141003_180244.jpg20141003_154539.jpg20141003_184420.jpg20141003_184357.jpg20141003_184455.jpg
