Wow, well I am feeling a bit better this morning after a restless sleep. Lets just say that mild food poisoning + 7 hour car ride = MISERABLE!
I have a love/hate relationship with the sat nav. She helps me get where I need to go, but seems to think that lesser known road would be the best. I have a strong feeling this is why we ended up on the top of a mountain in the snow in Switzerland. But, she’s (yes its a SHE) taken us through some of the most beautiful villages and towns that we’d otherwise probably not have seen. Case in point – yesterday. We drove straight through another mountain range, but were blessed with lovely, sunny weather. That detour made the long drive more bearable.
After we got to the hotel we took a little rest and decided to go see Monet’s house (the reason I picked this area in the first place). It was closed until next week (NEXT WEEK!) but we walked along the streets and just took in the scenery. It was peaceful and beautiful.
Here are the pictures from yesterday. The pink house is Monet’s and the huge river is the Seine.
Today we head back home. We have to check out of the hotel at 11 – but we don’t have to catch the train until 8 (its only a 3 hour drive) so we’ll see what we find on the way, or what the sat nav finds.
