Touring The Moselle Valley

After much post Winter preparation of the motorhome, which included a full service, MOT test, repairing a seized electric door window regulator, stiff bonnet release catch and fitting new main beam Hella headlight units due to a faded reflector, last Wednesday saw our early morning departure down to Deal in Kent for an overnight stay at Solley's Farm, a Caravan and Motorhome Club Certified Location, prior to catching the P&O Ferry across the channel to Calais.

Enjoying breakfast on P&O Ferries Pride of Canterbury.
The ship docked at Calais at 0910 hrs and by 0915hrs we were on our way through France. We had arranged to meet friends for the duration of our tour at Troyes, South West of Luxembourg, and around 350km from Calais. We intended to complete this journey in the day, and in the end it took us just 4 hours using the A26 toll motorway all the way down. A very easy journey. Because we wanted to complete this section of our trip as quickly as possible we chose to use the motorway, which although expensive at around 49 Euros in tolls for the whole distance, was far quicker than using A roads through towns and villages on this occasion. Our friends were coming up from Limoges, a similar distance to us, and against all the chances after travelling 4 hours each, we arrived at Camping Troyes at exactly the same time as each other and met in reception.

Our intention now is to rest for a couple of days and explore this area before moving on to Luxembourg and our tour through Germany.

Here are a few images of our wander around the beautiful medieval City of Troyes......

Our lovely pitch at Camping Troyes

Much of Troyes is medieval oak framed buildings




Just across the road from the site entrance is the beautiful River Seine.
Onwards tomorrow.
