We were up early, and back on the road after another disappointing B&B Hotels breakfast.
Our first port of call was the local LeClerc supermarket to pick up some drinks and snacks for the journey, and to fill up with petrol. The supermarket turned out to be a massive hypermarket, with a much greater range of products than we seem to get back in the UK these days.
It was an easy drive down to southern France, stopping only for a quick lunch at a service station and for Carol to part with lots of money at the road toll machines.
The highlight of the journey was the ride over the Millau Viaduct, which went much smoother that the last time we were here. Back in November 2018, we were travelling through France in our motorhome when we got stuck in a surprise dump of snow on the approach to the Millau Viaduct, and we ended up crossing the viaduct in very poor visibility using snow chains.
After crossing into Spain at the southern end of the Pyrenees, it didn’t take long to get to our hotel in Figueres, just to the north of Girona, nabbing the last disabled space. The hotel was from the Ibis Styles chain, and was far smarter, and cheaper, than the B&B Hotels the previous two nights. The hotel had its own restaurant with a good menu, and the food was great.
Next morning, the breakfast was fab, with a wide choice of food. We’ll be choosing Ibis hotels every time from now on!
