France 2001


Welcome to our report of our 2001 trip to France. We travelled 2040 miles crossing from Newhaven to Dieppe (homeward crossing was awful - late, slow and rough). Fuel consumption for our petrol Trafic coachbuilt was 21mpg mostly driving on N and D roads with a couple of 100 mile autoroute journeys which were mostly free of lorries and trucks, far more pleasant than motorways in the UK.

Our itinerary took us north of Paris to Troyes, through Bourgogne and the Jura and across to the Alps south of Grenoble. Then we headed south west to the Drôme Provençale and Mont Ventoux before retracing our route to Annecy, then northwest through Bresse region to Yonne. We avoided Paris by skirting to the west then north to Dieppe.
