Apologies everyone- we have had no internet for the last 9 days so no ability to upload our photos our post a blog entry! Our journey continues and Italy and now France are both amazingly beautiful countries that render surprises at every turn. We have been to Cabris with Michael's son Simon, wife Sophie and two girls Clara and Fleur. Now we have journeyed northward towards Paris, Borgoule, the western edge of the Loire Valley, to Fontainebleu an hour south of Paris. Tomorrow we say goodbye to our trusty car: after a luggage drop off in Paris. Nervous driver, but we should be ok. Wish us luck. Three days in Paris and then off to London. The home stretch!
