Our main break was a slightly-later-than-usual caravan trip to France during the first two weeks of September. This timing proved to have two distinct advantages which could make it habit forming. Firstly, the camp sites were decidedly uncrowded. Secondly, there was an extremely pleasant absence of rug rats. We were pretty lucky with the weather, too, which always helps. We didn’t know where we were going until we got there but it turned out to be the Loire (chateaux country) and the Dordogne (Perigord – foie gras country). These pictures are all from the Dordogne area.
