France 2004 – Day 2-5 : Finally an Update
Since I haven’t seen an Internet Cafe I treated myself to 2 hours of wireless on my handheld. I can read but not reply to my email but I was at least able to delete some crap.
Boy this has been a challenge.
Anybody know what size pants they wear in France? How about underwear? And they stole my suspenders!!! Which I can’t find at the store.
How about which shampoo to get? They had head and shoulders. Which deodorant? How can you tell which soap is for what?
I spent 4 hours and $200 and barely got anything and that was at the mall.
Well it is Thursday night and I am sure some of you are wondering, where I am and where I have been?
I am currently in a little hotel in Angers – it was 29e a night which isn’t bad my best so far has been 22e.
It is Thursday Night and since my last post I have been to:
-Chateau de Bernicourt
-Amiens Cathedral – WOW was this place big.
-Mairie Trie Chateau
-Old Walls Trie Chateau
Slept the Night in Gisors
-Ruin on the D14
-Monet’s Gardens in Giverny which was AMAZING and I’m told it was rare that it was sunny,
-Chateau La Roche-Guyon
-Chateau de Bizy
-Ruins of Chateau Robert le Diable – Saw it on the highway and stopped to photograph it.
-Chateau de Guillaume le Conquerant – Turns out the first time I was in Caen I missed it all together there are really 2 castles here Ducal and this one.
I spent the next night in Aunay-Sur-Odon
-Chateau du Trecesson
-Dolmen de la Maison-Trouvee
-Chateau du Crevy
-Chateau de Josselin (de rohan)
-Chateau de Chateaubriant
I had dinner in Chateaubriant where I met a guy who light castles for a living. He took my map and gave me some real hole in the wall places that he though I might like along the way.
Anyways the adventure continues – I will find out mid next week how bad I’ve blown my budget. I have as yet to find a film shields and earplanes and need both before I leave the country.
I should be back on in a couple of days!
Oh and I’ve gone about 1500km.
And some automatic car – if you want it to actually shift right you need to shift it yourself – the automatic mode doesn’t work very well its more of a clutchless stick.
