Dijon – 16/9 – 18/9

Camping Du Lac Kir (11,30 euros per night exc. electricity)

From Sancerre we travelled through the rolling hills passing some beautiful villages until we got to Dijon. Just meters from the campsite we came to a halt with a 3m bridge…… Something that most people wouldn’t think about, but when your motorhome is 3.1m high and you don’t really fancy turning it into a convertible an inch makes all the difference :). However, after much deliberation and persuasion by the campsite managers that it is actually 3.5m we progressed through without a problem. The campsite is about 2.5km outside Dijon and not surprisingly considering its name, on the edge of a lake with really nice spacious pitches.

We set out to explore Dijon on foot and although it is not particular picturesque it has a lovely old town and lots of ornate churches in very different styles as well as an exhibition of Francois Rude who created some of the most incredible sculptures that you may have seen in famous locations around France including the following which is located at the Arc du Triumph http://mba.dijon.fr/musee/musee-rude

We totalled up our distances today and since we left Bagnoles De L’Orne we have covered just over 1000 miles in the motorhome and 756.5 kms on the bike/walking 🙂
