Our motorbike travel to France and England
We motorbike in France and England for two year in a row...the first time by ourselves, the second with some friends
In both cases the Brittany landscape, the Normandy solemnity and the Cornwall mistery fill up our eyes and our heart.
We went through Switzerland crossing the Simplon Pass, to Lausanne and Nyon, and we arrive in Auxerre (FR) passing the Col de la Ginevrine.
From Auxerre the most famous Loire Valley castle are very close...Chambord, Blois, Chenonceaux, Chinon.
Not to be missed in Saumur area all the champignon plantation built in caves digged in the tuff stone...
Brittany is not far from Loire Valley, and driving along La Baule promontory and Le Croisic promontory is very nice...have a stop in Guerande, famous for its salt.
Passing through Carnac we reach the Quiberon peninsula, and then we go up north, and town after town the landscape is always amazing...Pont-Aven, Concarneau, Audierne, wonderful Point du Raz, Locronan, Roscoff.
From Roscoff with a ferry you can reach Plymouth in 4 hours, and from there is easy to visit Cornwall...
we go as far as the Lizard peninsula, till Land's End, and then Tintagel, Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth.
But if you go to England you cannot miss Glastonbury, Bath, Winchester, Salisbury, and the magic place of Stonehenge.
We crossed the Cotswold Hills and reach Oxford, Eton, Windsor and its castle..and then we drove back to Dover to catch the ferry back to France.
But before going home the France donate us other wonderful landscapes with Fecamp, Etretat, Honfleur and Deaville, and moment to reflect passing through Normandy with its sadly famous beaches and the military cemetery of Colleville.
A little stop in Mont St. Michel is the real last step of our travel....from here to home only highway!
