Montpellier to Spain via a Gendarmerie

I had barely sniffed hello before busting this move, apologies to my French family who kindly let me take over, entertained us and washed our smelly socks. 
The French interior gets a full 5 paw review from me, I loved it and can’t wait to return. The Ardèche was stunning, good for cycling, dogs, eating and drinking… 

So onto the south of France and the relatives for some much needed home comforts (ie Tigger the cat bothering) We had super few days. Most importantly they have a sofa outside, yes in France you can do that without fear of rotting cushions…

And then the motorhome got broken into whilst on a quiet street in daylight outside a police station. Luckily not much damage and stolen things can be replaced but it was a mess. It lead to a strange yet entertaining afternoon at the local Gendarmerie. Thankfully with a fluent French speaker (Elaine can but oui) The highly stressed, yet obviously underworked, policeman threw his phones around grumbling at his computer and moaning at anyone who dared enter the station. A crime? ‘What do you expect me to do about it?’ Wave arms frantically and stomp off with your two guns. Still we got the crime report filed. 

We’re now is Spain and due to the love of galgos I may just like it better than France.

Dogs on site – many, almost 75% occupancy which leads to a daily escapee. 1 parrot, 1 cat

  1. What wonderful exciting adventures you’re having Doz – sorry to hear about the camper being broken into 😪 They were lucky you weren’t on guard duty that day you’d have got ’em!!!
    Word must’ve got out about your rather extensive wardrobe 😂😂
    They are fabulous pics and so glad you’re all having a wonderful time.
    Take care and paw bumps from the Black Hound Gang xxx


  2. Oh my word, Doz! A break-in at your camper home? They’re messing with the wrong lurcher.
    Glad to hear you got things sorted after a visit to the stressed gendarmes.
    As always there are some beautiful photos to look at, and it’s great to know your humans now have clean socks😉.
    I have just begun a fortnights holiday, and have started in the traditional Loaf way; washing bedding at 10:30pm😂. I just bought a new duvet, so everything needed to be clean for a good night’s rest. After wine that is.
    Keep up the lovely blogs, and we hope to see you soon.
    Love from Nelly, Daisy, and me. Xxx
