Tradition

Hello everyone.

Tonight we have returned to La France and are in the Département du Jura. This is a part of L’hexagone that is new to me and I must say so far I am very impressed!

OK, this is going to be brief…no hotel WiFi available to be worth a biscuit. Actually it’s a great little provincial France hotel, the sort that is rapidly disappearing. I don’t know what it is about paper-thin walls and floors, threadbare carpets, questionable electrics and cheap tatty furniture that people don’t like these days. These places are all about tradition!

Personally, I love these old places for the bags of character that they have and I feel it will be a sad day when they are all gone, honestly I do. As usual there is limited choice in the restaurant, but what you get is plenty of good freshly cooked food typical of the region and enough to satisfy the hungriest diner.

Anyway, have we had an experience today…more big passes in the Swiss Alps, got caught up in a fantastic Swiss traditional feast day, beat the weather(just about) and rolled into France in time for supper! – All of which I’ll tell you about when I get some decent internet access.

Harls is safely tucked up in the hotel garage, keeping the owners Suzuki company and I’m just about to eat, après un petit apéritif, salut!

Bonsoir et attrape-toi bientôt!

    • Ha! Never to late to learn!😂😂😂
      I’ve gotta admit that it’s been a bit confusing on this trip…
      French, German, Italian and not necessarily when you think either!
      Sometimes I opened my mouth and the wrong language came out, then sometimes a bit of a mixture!!!
      Perhaps I should stick to Welsh!
      The Swiss Police have a nice trick, they walk round the back of your vehicle to see where you are from off the number plate and then choose the right language; Switzerland has four official languages, plus English, due to all the expats, tourists and film stars!
