11th of August 2012

...an other day, an other road trip into the wild!

As my co-pilot today, please welcome Mr Ombrenoire 'Black Shadow' himself, right on time as always!  arrow

The target is not too far this time :

6H21am, it's time to go!

12C, it's a misty morning...

...but the Sun is coming...it's gonna be a good day!

So, today we are going to steal something in France!  Tongue Sorry Ombrenoire, I know it's your home country!  Roll Eyes

I love France! Especially when I can skip boring highways... and when I can cross typical villages...

Ok yeah, let's get rid of it now!.... done!  Grin  arrow

Really nice views...

...isn't it?...

Breakfast times!

Do we have time for this? mhhhuu?  Grin

Nope, but maybe for this then?    Wink  arrow

Ok, back on track! Hey... St Menehould here?

...famous for the annual arcade/pinball mess!  Cool

Sky so blue... love it!

Very sunny now  Kiss ...

...but also very hot! An other break...

"I love the smell of road trip in the morning"  Grin  arrow

Ok, here we are... 3 minutes to go...

Country rules! Definitively yeah!  Kiss  arrow

Welcome to the seller , welcome to ...


In the heart of Burgundy, 5 minutes from the historic center of Auxerre and 1h30 from Paris, discover the charm of the Domaine de Montboulon which can accommodate up to 6 adults and 2 children of young age.
Warm and cozy, enjoy relaxing with family and friends with many activities on site and go to discover the richesness of Burgundy.

A lot of interesting things to do here (check all the activities), but we are here today for this :

Yes! For this Xbox Demo Pod! Yeah, not the best console of its era but definitively one of the beautiful demo pod for me  Kiss

Others 'toys' to distract visitors here (not for sale) :

Reaaaaally nice place here!  Kiss

I didn't realize before the 'road trip day' that place was so cozy & relaxing, otherwise I would spend one night with wife & daughter... Cool

Anyway, here's the beast in daylight :

Very nice condition, me happy!  Cool

Great place, nice catch... what else?

Ok, it's time to leave that place...

Here's a general view of of the "Domaine de Montboulon"  Kiss

What this?

'Junk shop' not too far? ... here we go!

Arf! No luck this time... bye bye our dreams of 'vintage cabinets' or electronic games or whatever here ...  Roll Eyes pacman pacman pacman pacman

Ok, back on way to home... balls and strange shapes along the road, in order to distract the drivers and prevent them to fall asleep!  Cool

The usual "here's my reward inside the car" picture (tm)  Smiley  arrow

A last stop...

...to drink...

...and eat something...

...before the last parsec driven until my homeland...

...and this is it!

Two countries : Belgium > France > Belgium, 9 hours on the road and 711km driven!

Unloading the beast now...

Destination : the Nuno's Lair V1, or V2, or maybe V3? Not sure! Damn, why I'm waiting so long to publish road trip reports?  Roll Eyes Tongue
