We set off early in the morning with Owen, Rio and Pizca driving along the south east coast heading North passing Valencia and over the Ebro delta by Barcelona.
We crossed into France at La Jonquera, as we stopped for fuel and to let Owen stretch his legs in the Languedoc region, the Mistral wind was blowing.
We drove over the Millau bridge and spent the night in a local hotel.
The next morning we travelled towards Paris by Clermont Ferrand, the periferique, as busy as usual. We arrived at the tunnel where we had to have the pets’ passports scrutinised. Then into Kent, the pets had their first view of green England.
We have already had the opportunity to see the Nutcracker ballet at the Hippodrome Birmingham.
