Agree Bill, also one of the problems with attempting to see so many places in a short time is that your head is so ‘stuffed’ you forget what you saw where!
We all know that there are some beautiful places in France and it’s just not possible to see them all in a short time. Lots of my favourites are missing but then I am not a tourist so have had more time to explore, thankfully !

A maxim of mine when travelling/holidaying is, don’t try to do too much, or you finish up doing, seeing nuttin’
Over the years I’ve met several Americans who do this sort of thing. It seems to be more of an attempt to complete a tick list than to enjoy France.

One of my dreams David is to have a camping car with all the extras, awnings etc; ( with cycles/moped attached ) and go touring France (out of season) and stopping off where and when I want.
