Today we completed essential chores – laundry and alcohol shopping. A nicely located Carrefour right at the entrance to our Aire was also only a stone throw from a laundrette. With the washing in we strolled round the shop buying crazy French food to accompany our beverages we also managed to purchase a few Christmas prizes.
Leaving France behind we headed off through Belgium then filled up with fuel in Luxembourg and on to Germany for our stop in Saarburg. We again opted for non toll roads and this was definitely better and what we will do from now on. We saved €65+ on tolls and we got to see some lovely autumnal sights and went through some little villages with narrow twists and turns. We also travelled through champagne grape fields where there were grapes growing as far as the eye could see.
Our Aire in Saarburg again turned out to be more of a campsite than a carpark and even had a rally marquee in the centre. We pitched up and I managed to worse levelling ever and parked us completely on the wonk, at least it was the right wonk as our shower would drain.
After dinner we walked along the river towards the town, the campsite receptionist warned us that the town would be quiet as it was a Monday night but it surely couldn’t be as quiet as Sunday in Château Thierry. We were right and although some bars were closed at least there were bars. Lucy had an ice cream and we had some beers then we took in some sights which included the town fire and rescue department doing a rescue practice over a waterfall, this was impressive.
