Frolicking in Provence lavender fields, “Wicked” beach parties along the French Rivera, dipping in the sparkling Rivera Sea, exploring the breathtaking Verdun gorge and swimming in the crystal clear waters of Annecy with the French Alps as a stunning backdrop.

The Great Experience We Call ‘Van Tour’

We as a trio, Wayne, Miranda and Clinton pick up our van from London having our first night in the van at the town of Sandwich, Kent. Our night was cold but the van keeps us warm.

We wake up early, pack up the van and head for the ferry. Our first impressions of France weren’t the best, but hey, we’re in France!

We head off through France towards Spain. Our GPS gives us the option of avoiding tolls, now hearing how much the tolls are in France we choose to avoid. Avoiding tolls may have taken longer but we saved on the tolls and got to see many of the intriguing back streets of France.
