It is Friday, 5 February 2021. We have a total of 114 miles under our feet and are just about half-way to Paris. We stopped for a moment just outside St Omer, at The Abbaye de Clairmarais – a quite stunning farm where they, among other things, make their own beer! It’s so exciting to be somewhere new, even though we haven’t yet travelled many miles, it all looks different and smells different and sounds different – quite blissful!
We moved on south, still en route to Paris. You pass through so many wonderful French villages and small towns, it is so easy to stop and chat and sample the local produce but we have many miles to go. Here are a few places we passed through. Some of the photos have clickable links to find out more about where they are and what they are!
