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 on the banks of the River Loire. There’s a pretty old town, and much of the pedestrianised lanes in the newer part of town look like the old town.
There’s not a huge amount to do apart from visit the cathedral or art museum, so when we weren’t having coffee and cakes or eating lunch, we spent our time browsing around the shops. The weather was rather wet, but at least it didn’t snow like it has done back in the UK.
Tomorrow we have another long drive, this time to an aire in Boulogne, where we’ll spend the night before catching the Eurotunnel back to the UK on Sunday.
