What next for the Hidden Gypsy?

  Spring is here at long last, the sun is shining, the leaves are popping out of their little buds and giving a bright, lime green hue all around me. Although our ‘travels’ have finished, we are still in France, soon to go back to the UK where hopefully Harry the Hymer will find a […]

Motorhoming in France … Desperately Seeking Spring!

OK so what is going on with the weather? Can anyone give me an answer? This is seriously beginning to irritate me now, we’ve had the first day of Spring, we’ve dutifully put the clocks forward and what do we get in return? Rain, rain, more rain, wind, and cold, icy blasts. I’ve just about […]

Motorhoming in France … More Beauty!

I think this will probably be the last post from the Dordogne region of France. I still have so many photos but I’m afraid I might bore the pants off you if I continue posting about the Dordogne. It’s strange but the first time we passed through this region, it didn’t ‘grab’ me at all, […]

Motorhoming in France … More Dordogne Stories

I’m sat in Harry, the sun is shining, Charlie is outside in his little makeshift kennel and it’s good to have the awning out again. I will eventually get you up to date with where we are and what we’re up to but for the moment, I have so much I want to share with […]

You’ve no doubt enjoyed the peace and quiet of not having me pop up in your mail box everyday, well I hope you took advantage of it because it’s all over, I’m back! We’ve spent the most glorious week, staying in a gite in the Dordogne region of France, with my sister and her husband. […]

Motorhoming in France … Cognac and Harry’s stuck in the mud!

Today is Wednesday, we’ve travelled a fair few kilometres over the last couple of days, we’re now back in the Dordogne (we do like to keep you on your toes, keep up, for heaven’s sake!) We’re meeting up with family next week, chances are there won’t be a blog during that time so this one […]

Motorhoming in France … a real gem of an island

I’m afraid I’ve gone overboard with the photos again today, I’m sorry but there is just so much to share!! You’ve all read the novel, the story goes like this, the heroine (normally a writer) has a broken heart, she up sticks and goes off to an island where she rents a cottage overlooking the […]

Motorhoming in France … What? No Chateau?

This is a bit of a bumper photo edition, I got carried away, please accept my apologies!! After our little trip to La Cotiniere, we popped over to a town/village called Chateau d’Oleron. I went into the tourist information office and picked up a map, the helpful lady asked me what in particular we wanted […]

Motorhoming in France … Feeling Nauti…cal!

I feel as though I should be wearing a navy and white striped t-shirt, yellow sou’wester jacket and a pair of Musto Sailor’s boots! Yes – we are well and truly in fishermen’s’ land. We woke early again today and after a night of rain, we were delighted to see the sky was blue once […]

Motorhoming in France … Bonjour les Gendarmes!

Our last night spent on the road on the way back to Paris, was in France, in a little village called Loulay, just north of Bordeaux. I’m sure in the summer it is the most delightful village, the evening we arrived, it was blowing a gale, the rain was throwing it down and everything looked […]
