There’s not a lot to report for the last few days, we’ve been catching up with tasks, Darren’s made a few alterations to the van and repaired a few bits and bobs. I’ve been feeling poorly for a couple of days so we had a brief wander into town to find a pharmacy, unfortunately the town we were walking round wasn’t the town on the map that Darren was ‘reading’ and so ensued a comedy of errors.
Finally I decided I’d had enough of walking around aimlessly in the baking hot sun albeit through a very pretty town of which I unfortunately took no photos (I was feeling THAT poorly) and went into the supermarket to see if I could get something in there.
I now know supermarkets in France DON’T sell anything pharmaceutical not even paracetamol. I asked the girl on the till where the local pharmacy was and she said in the next town along (that’s when Darren twigged that we had a map of THAT town!) so we gave up our search for a chemist, bought food for lunch and walked the long walk home.
Darren very kindly took his bike out when the shops reopened, we were a bit more sensible this time and Googled the pharmacies in advance so he had a list of addresses that he could go and check out.
I am now totally up to date with the washing and almost up to date with photos for the blog before we start the Spanish part of our trip tomorrow.
