At the entrance to the Parc, cyclists were chatting away happily

Could be anywhere in Australia, very similar. I often watch the Tour de France, sound off, enjoy the countryside, so different from ours!

For lunch at the lake, we had some Banon cheese among other local snacks.

Last year, we did not visit Paris.

Went to the East and South of France.

The countryside in europe is great for cycling. Lots of little towns to break up the ride, stop for food and drink.

Here the towns are few and far between, or traffic is an issue.

I lived in France for 6 months near Nice on the Côte d'Azur in a two-bedroom rental apartment near the beach.

The thing I loved about it was baguettes, cheese, pastries and wine.

Other than that, nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to spend my life there. Damn cold in winter.
