Mira Bilis, nothing's changed. I'm sure you could assemble a car from the debris you see on a long journey! :D
It was the early and mid seventies when I went. Do you remember seeing car tyres, exhaust pipes and all kinds of car junk along the autoroutes? We couldn't get over how much scrap there was ... and these were toll roads! LOL! :D
Mira Bilis, my father would never use the autoroutes and we used to go through the Alps. On the way down we went Route Hannibal and on the return journey we went Route Napoleon. Not much difference, you just go either side of a mountain. Our first trip we took hurricane lamps.... my dad's face was a picture when he saw you could hook up to electricity. That was in the 60's and the UK camp sites didn't have that facility. I like the route nationales but for speed, give me the autoroutes any day!
I hope feral's having a grand time!
The first time we went, we drove down via the 'B' roads and through the Alps. The second time we used the autoroute. I was only a child both times, so they were simply family holidays. We were accompanied on both occasions by aunts, uncles and cousins, who also brought their own vehicles and tents. Great fun. :)
Mira Bilis, when you went camping down south, did you fly or drive? We always drove because we took gifts to England from France and brought back essential English goodies on the return journeys. We used to drive through this area but never stopped to sightsee. What we did see was very nice.
Here's the page for their cams ... lol ... but you need to request a password and login from the harbour master first ... http://h2ofrance.com/p_river-port-webcam.php
Hi JessiLuv, I really like this cam. It gets quite busy in the Spring.
