We are getting married on Sunday 27th March 2016 (Easter Sunday) the next day we catch the night boat over from Portsmouth to Le Havre arriving in France at approximately at 0830hrs.
Our plan is to ride to the South of France somewhere near Nice and then turn left and head up the coast. Ideally we would like to get to Florence in Italy, but we have no fixed plan so who knows where we might end up!
We will be booking a cabin on the boat to make sure we are well rested for the ride down to our first over night stop.
We decided that we would book our first night in advance as after the wedding and an over night crossing we didn't want the hassle of looking for somewhere on route.
By chance a link popped up on my Facebook feed to a small hotel/bed and breakfast in the Correze region of Limousin. Run by an English couple Rob and Mandy. Their hotel is called the Riders Rest and can be found by clinking on the link highlighted.
It's run by bikers for bikers with secure parking, a workshop and drying facilities! The rooms look great and the prices excellent.
More importantly home cooked food and having contacted them and arranged our dates I must say that the level of communication is exceptional.
I can't wait to get there!
We have actually decided to stay for two nights as we reckon we will be pretty knackered after a rather full on weekend so having two nights to wind down will be heaven.
Whilst here we will decide on which direction to take for the next part of our adventure.
I have a few spares to buy to take with us just in case, and apart from a full service we are ready to go!
With less than 9 weeks to go till the big day it wont be long till we are off!
The journey continues...................
