This was the start of the vacation. Getting stuff together and making a planning of the trip. On the road sometimes you don’t know what road to take, so you have to take the map and make up your mind.
Bourgogne is a place where they make wine. So you have to look at the fields where they grow the grapes. Its nice to see that they grow on small, very small trees. And as far as you can see, only fields with growing grapes. Nothing on it yet, but they while carry a heavy load in August.
Making trips on a bike you will be astonished by the view of the country. Also what you will encounter beside the roads. Trees all around and suddenly out of the blue this statue. Its the Madonna, don’t know why its standing there, but it looks old and nice. The stairway is renovated and gorgious.
A closer look at the statue. It’s very nice and looking over the sided hills.
A french castle looking over the lower countryside. Nice and white, and a free sight on the front. This castle stands in the hills where we had our camping spot.
Brandon, a nice little town.
Here we parked the bikes. After a trip of more than 1000km they needed a place to rest.
The intention for this trip was vacation and a little working in the garden. Cutting the grass and making a good time.
Nice fields and buildings. A shed against the rain and sun.
Me, checking my cellphone. Inside the old farm, which is more then 150 years old and still looks nice but needs some maintenance.
A look up the hill to the old farm, grass still needs to be cut.
On one of the trips. A great country for bikers and for people who like to enjoy life.
Nice buildings, like this church. In small towns where you only can get to over small roads through hills.
This is such a small road.
This is it for now.
I am back to the working routine again. Still have 2 weeks to go and then I have another 3 weeks of vacation. Will have to spend some time in my own cottage/home for maintenance and painting. Maybe a long weekend Luxembourg. Have found a nice hotel there and you can go on hiking trips there also. Good food and wine also there.
Bye for now.
