Tours

It was quite a long and boring drive to Tours, so we listened to lots of podcasts on the way to keep ourselves entertained. The campsite in Tours is an ACSI €18/night one, located a 20 minute bus ride from the centre. Despite the wet weather, we braved it into town both days. It’s situated … Read more

Taking the tunnel back to the UK, we drove to the Sewardstone camp site … Read more
