Before my short report on the journey home, here’s an index to the postings for this short trip. You can access all the postings at one go by clicking here and scrolling down to the oldest posting. I’ve not attempted to place links between the days due to problems with Google’s ‘Blogger’ software that destroys all the formatting when you try to edit using the Blogger dashboard.
Conrad visited the area in 2001 and walked the ‘Full Tour’. His report is here.
Here’s my report on the journey home:
Sunday 2 September 2007
An easy journey home. We cope with the peculiar locking system of the Megane Scenic and enjoy a few hours in Chambery - a very nice town with an elephant square celebrating the French exploits in India, and some interesting ancient streets. Mostly shut, so pleasantly quiet, hot and sunny.
After a nice lunch, easily back to Lyon airport and home to rainy Manchester, but a refreshingly jolly taxi driver.
