Leave Paris for Nevers

Wednesday 9th September 2015

We have had a wonderful five days with Brian and Linda, but, today, we say our farewells, they have one more day in Paris, before heading for home.

Their plan is a wine and sandwiches picnic on the banks of the Seine.

It should be an enjoyable day, it is bright and sunny, all day, with the temperatures climbing to 25C.

For anyone thinking of using this campsite, and, perhaps, worrying about access, a little bit of video of our departure. You need to skip over the drive to the service point, and, as you can see, the access roads are not bad, provided you do not encounter a road sweeper, as we did!


The sat-nav plots a route more or less through central Paris.

Paris inner ring road!

It is not too bad at first, but, then, once past La Defence, we seem to spend almost as much time underground as on the surface!


We arrive at Camping de Nevers, at about 16:30, to find it, effectively full!

This is the first time this has happened in eight years.

We are offered a space down by the river, along with numerous other campervans and caravans which are in this "overflow" area, no electric hook-up is available, and, we do not get a reduction in price, which, does not please Kathleen.

But, we have a good view of the Basilica from our pitch, to compensate for the lack of electric hook-up.

An evening stroll across the bridge, into Nevers, rounds off the day.

Nevers is quite a lively town, lots of eating and drinking places, all busy.
