Keep safe and enjoy
I'm so pleased to have access to this method of communication to keep up to date with your upcoming adventure. How exciting!

Thank you Debs for being my partner at Stansfield Bridge Club this past year or so. It has been an absolute pleasure to have met such a nice considerate person. If you decide to return to Suffolk some day hopefully our paths may cross again. In the meantime enjoy your trip. The tracker is a really good idea, thanks. Trevor

Good look from Switzerland
I'm so happy for you that ist starts soon.I know that you habe already planned and trained exactly one year ago. Nevertheless , you had plenty of time for the linguistically helpless Swiss girl.
I am lookin forward to the reports which i will translate diligently.Kind regards Vroni

Greetings from walberswick
Enjoying the blog, keep on writing. we want to know what you are up to. We spent a sunny BH weekend at Walberswick. Short bike ride to Dunwich and back - and no hills! several dog walks along the beach, got the BBQ going and of course lots of wine... hic. Hannah was there with 3 friends and we had a good chat. Will you be back in time for your air B and B guests?
Steven & Debs (28th May 2016)
We are indeed now among the chateaux of the Loire. Time does not permit to make any visits, but we have done so on previous occasions. As for son st lumiere that is provided by the thunder and lightening storms most days!

At current rate we estimate to be back in UK between 4th and 6th June, but will update later.
Anne and Dad (28th May 2016)
Chateau district coming
We see that you are approaching the Chateaux area - are you visiting any? Do they still do Son et Lumiere at some of them? You must be laughing with your bikes as the rest of France is struggling with no petrol!! Hope you don't run into any troubles though. Take care. All well here. nice to talk to you when at Montpelier.
Love Anne and Dad

Greetings from Dordogneshire
Well here we are camped on the bank of the eponymous river. Apologies to our readers (both of them) for lack of updates in recent days. This is due to a combination of inadequate internet in French campsites and evenings spent socialising with friends and relatives.
We hope to resume normal service in the coming days, but to summarise our recent adventures:

Having crossed the Pyrenees in a bit of a hurry to escape late snow, we found ourselves a bit in the wrong place. Hence a detour through the Corbieres region to reach the Canal du Midi. Beset by unfavourable winds and threat of worse to come we arrived ahead of schedule in Montpellier to pass 5 very pleasurable days with Craig & Valerie.

Then a night with Carole & Daniel, parents of Harriets exchange partner Laureline, before meeting Nicky and Andy off the Eurostar at Avignon.

Then 8 days heading through the Gorges of the Ardeche and Lot in changeable weather and some long hills to Figeac where A & D returned to UK leaving Debs and I alone in La France profonde.
