14th March 2018 Bazouges-Cre Sur Loir (Le Vieux Pont)

After Breakfast and draining down we set off for our next Camping Car Park. Bazouges-Cre Sur loir is a French town located in Sarth, in the Pays de Loire region.

A shorter drive today of 282 miles. After a short break for a sandwich at a service station it20180314_114437 took us approximately five hours. As we were the only ones there on arrival we parked up at the service point to fill up with some water. While filling up we walked around to choose our pitch. The grass pitches had been cordoned off for obvious reasons and although the other pitches were gravel some had ruts in where previous occupants had sunk. Bear this in mind if you should choose to visit when it has been wet.

The aire, which is right next to the river Loir is built on the old municipal campsite and the service point looks fairly new. It has 27 motorhome pitches and has a security barrier in place. The electric is rated at 6amps.

We decided on the most firm one and after parking up and plugging into the electric we decided to go for a walk into the town centre which is only 200 meters away. We got a few provisions from a little supermarket and some cakes from the local bakery. No matter how big or small the town/village is , there is always a good bakery.

We had a bit of a wander around and then headed back to the van for our tea. Early evening we were joined by one other motorhome.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
