Something for the weekend...

Today you can visit the brocante 'de la Foire de la St-Georges' over at Preuilly-sur-Claise, which on a beautiful day is worth it simply for the walk around this pretty place.

it Sunday you can head over to Yzeures-sur-Creuse or check out another Sunday brocante.

Barrou to Paris by bus.

Because of the current train strikes here in France Pauline had to take the bus to Paris yesterday as her train was affected. So rather than wave her off from Chatellerault train station we simply walked up to the bus stop opposite 'Le Bourg' in the village which was an easier journey for me...but as it turned out, not for Pauline. There is only two buses through the village,one on Saturday and one on Wednesday (don't know how you are supposed to get back) so it was ideal for getting her to Tours to pick up the other bus to Paris.
Unfortunately the bus at Tours was late and it meant that by the time it hit Paris traffic was at a peak. She left Barrou at 12.15 and did not get to my brother's apartment in Paris until around 8.00pm. She is setting off from their with my sister-in-law today to get to Milan...hope that journey goes smoother!
