Enjoy! It must be better than staying here to experience the worst August for a long time

Very nice Simon. Were just a tad east of Bordeaux at the mo, having been to Spain and back. Is it crazy hot where you are? Its lows of 20 at night and 30+ during the day. Not complaining, its better than the UK, but boy is it draining!

Were near Nontron, Aquitaine, and travelled to A Corua along the coast through St Jean de Luz. Incredible part of the world.

And yes, mid to low 30s every day here!!!

Hi All,

Glad you're enjoying the Continent but today, Sunday 27.8.17 has been just the BEST weather I can remember for years...

32 degrees? Keep it.

Robert
