Last year, a friend of ours went to Spain on a motorcycle tour of the Pyrenees. His stories and pictures were just awesome! This got us thinking about maybe returning to France for a similar trip sometime soon.
As luck would have it, a co-worker of Janet's who happens to live in France was visiting the company headquarters here in Nevada City late last year. During the course of their discussions, he indicated that he wanted to bring his family over for a vacation in Northern California. The seeds of an idea blossomed between the two for doing a "house swap."
After several months of discussion and trying to sync schedules, we were finally able to work out the details. We'll get to stay in their home in Toulouse while they take over our house in Grass Valley. And the best part: we will have use of a BMW motorcycle!
So, after months of planning, route planning, and research, our gear is all packed and our reservations are all confirmed. Tomorrow we take off for 3 ½ weeks of adventure and exploration in the south of France. Upon arrival in Toulouse, we'll be met by our hosts and taken to their home for an orientation. Then, we'll pack up the bike and take off through the Midi-Pyrenees and a brief trip into Spain. And you are invited to share in our discoveries!
We look forward to keeping you involved in our adventure as much as we can. So sit back and enjoy the ride! It should be a great trip.
