A Busmanís holiday
Despite covering thousands of miles travelling to France and Germany on numerous occasions over the last couple of weeks, you would have thought that a nice long weekend relaxing in the garden would be on the top of the list for an extended weekend break. Oh no, four wheels where changed to two, as Tim set off with 4 fellow bikers for a weekend of motorcycling around the glorious Brittany country side.
A nice long enjoyable weekend was had with over a 1,000 miles ( 1,600km) being covered with numerous tea and lunch stops, from munching a French Baguette at the delightful medieval town Concarneau, crepes by the lake in Huelgoat, Croque-monsieur sat by the abbey in Redon, to the obligatory moules and frites at the seaside in Carentec. Well as Napoléon said “ an army marches on its stomach” which was quite apt, as Tim was staying in Pontivy, which in 1804, the name was changed to Napoléonville after Napoleon Bonaparte. After his downfall, it was renamed Pontivy, Napoleon that is, not Tim !
All sounds like a “très bien” time was had
