Hi everyone. I hope you’re all well. It’s taken
me my typist a long time to tell you about my first holiday in France. We went last year in June and had the best time. We went to lots of pretty castles, saw lots of beautiful towns and villages, a big cathedral and one really tall tower.
Here is the first bit of our journey.
We drove a long way… all the way to Dover, to catch a big boat called a ferry to cross the Channel to France.
The next day we moved to another campsite a bit further south just near a little village called Touquin. We saw lots and lots of sunflowers on the way.
Next morning we were up bright and early to go and visit Chateau de Pierrefonds. I thought it was called Camelot because I’ve seen it on the TV with a chap called Merlin – something to do with the BBC.
Here is a video I found on Youtube someone was lucky enough to be at the castle when they were filming. It’s very interesting. Merlin in Pierrefonds.
We bought our first proper French baguette from the boulangerie in Pierrefonds and had it for our tea that evening with some sausages. It was yummy.
I hope you’ll join me in my next post to tell you all about our visit to the Palace of Versailles and our day out in Paris when I got to go up the Eiffel Tower.
