To say this last year has been a bit chaotic would be an understatement and plans we made at the start of the year, always seemed to get pushed aside, so there have been less videos of Fifi than we had imagined we would be posting. So better late than never, I thought I would … More A little drive in the November sunshine.
I can’t believe that it’s New Year’s Eve already. Where has this year gone? I remember my mum saying to me that the older you get, the faster the years seem to go, and I never thought that would be possible. But this year has gone by in a flash, and it’s the first time … More Life flies by in Provence
I can honestly say that yesterday felt like a holiday. I know that probably sounds a bit ridiculous – I’m in Provence, I cycle almost every day, I have stunning villages to visit and explore, surely every day should feel like a holiday. The fact is that generally it does and don’t get me wrong, … More Back to a Brocante – with a bit of planning ahead.
Our drive down through France in Fifi with all the excitement and worry already seems like a distant memory.

I Mentioned in yesterday’s post about the story of using 2CVs to set the categorisation of climbs in The Tour De France. It made us realise the final climb back to the house can only be done in 1st gear, so is a Category 1 climb, and to be honest pretty tough at the end … More Fifi the cycle carrier
Day 5 of our adventure driving Fifi our 49 year old 2CV from Devon to Provence and a spectacular day’s drive … More Fifi’s French Adventure Day 5…. All the way to Provence
After 12 days in the garage at Brantôme we’re back on the road again driving Fifi, our 49 year old 2CV to Provence … More Fifi’s French Adventure Day 4
We’re quite enjoying putting these little videos together now. The Sunflower fields were stunning, but the sight of Fifi being loaded onto the back of a recovery truck is so sad. Hopefully you can also see why we love the view from the Hotel L’Esplanade as we push open the shutters….. It is Jaw-droppingly beautiful … More Fifi’s French Adventure – Day 3 video
