It remained dry camping in Pezenas and we can pack our stuff. At the reception we ordered croissants and baguettes, deliciously fresh for breakfast.
The route through central France we drive on the toll route, i.e. at Millau we find the first stretch of toll road. We stop at the viaduc de Millau for a thorough inspection, first in the parking lot and later down to Millau to look even under the bridge. Impressive, this structure and the film about the building (in the parking lot above) gives a good insight into how it was created.
The visit takes an hour or two, but it’s well worth it. We also pass the (railway) viaduct Gabarit, a creation of Eiffel, that is clear to see.
The route takes us further on the French motorways and at a cruising speed of 90 km/h all is going well, even the engine temperature of Milady is limited thanks to the lower ambient temperature, even the windows stay closed occasionally.
We spend the night in Bourges, a pretty shady camping municipal. We walk to town and come to the conclusion that kitchens aren’t open after 10 PM all over France. Luckily we found a cozy restaurant on the square near the cathedral where we can eat on the terrace. We discuss tomorrow’s route and decide that considering the small difference in travel time, we will paas through Paris to show Milady the Eiffel Tower.
