Dot to Dot Tandy Tour of France September 2012

a trip by BobsJoy
From: August 29th 2012
Until: September 26th 2012

We decided this trip, instead of finding all new places to visit, to revisit places we have really enjoyed. I went through all our French travel "trip records" and selected campsites and places we had rated highly. Then plotted them on an Autroroute map as POIs and handed over to Bob to play dot-to-dot with my map and come up with a joined together route round France.
