We decided to take a 'Year around Europe in a motorhome'... Most people ask us the very same question when we talk about our adventures.... 'Were you experienced motorhomers who'd travelled much before?'
The answer is always the same, firstly, yes we'd travelled and loved taking our growing family to new corners of the world... but no, we were absolute 'newbies' to the motorhoming world
Our school holiday would begin and family adventures/life would resume, yet just like every other year, the summer holiday of 2015 never allowed us to fully finish kayaking the Dordogne.. we'd made a decent stab of it finishing pretty much each section from Bergerac to Beynac... but we knew we'd missed out...
The quality of the canoe makes all the difference!!! So we were delighted with the 2 person canoe (and have been equally lucky in places like Eidfjord or Dubrovnik) but were even more amazed wth the beauty in, on and around the river... Iconic landmarks like La Roque-Gageac drifted past whilst herons or buzzards swept down in front of our canoes and we were even treated to dragonflies/butterflies landing on our hands/paddles..
The Grolejac to Beynac route takes in other magnificent sites that include the imperious 'Chateau de Montfort' or fairytale perfect 'Chateau de Castelnaud' before you reach the finale at 'Chateau de Beynac'...
Not only has it reminded us all of how lucky we are to have this amazing experience, it also reminded us of just how impressive France is as a country.... littered with man-made and natural landmarks that could easily take a year to discover alone!!! Maybe, we'll have to extend and call it a 'Double Sabbatical across Europe'!!!
