Four Days in France
« on: September 20, 2014, 02:28:52 PM »
I, Steve and two others are planning a short break in Northern France. No routes planned, but probably Normandy-which is gorgeous.

The trip is planned for 3rd October, probably taking the Newhaven/ Dieppe ferry.

I wil ride the elderly VFR750, and Steve will be on his Suzuke 1100, which is a good 20 years old.

Unsolicited, I know, but:

The Chateau and Musée de Dieppe; the Auberge Colvert, Route D928 south of Abbeville (nice food without having to enter the town); Rouen (nice city and cathedral); Amiens (nice cathedral). Chartres is lovely, but it is so popular you really have to book in advance.

Happy trails!  :D

Thanks! I know Normandy fairly well and the Paris area-that's about it.

Oh-I know the South pretty well too.

Honfleur makes a nice impression on Google maps. Have you been there before?

Sent via flyiing spoons from La Belle France.

Came oover on the Newhaven/ Dieppe ferry. Trip report will commence tomorrow, when I'm less tired.

A bit more interesting than I had hoped, so far.
