Normandy 2016: Postscripts and notes...

OK, a couple of things I forgot to mention.

Roy, the RMP veteran who took a tumble at the 46 RM memorial, got back to England alright, and as at the last information I had on him, was recovering at home. We're looking forward to seeing him next year, if he can make it.

Lessons learned:
  • Sunburn's a right royal pain in the wherevers!
    Remember the damned sunscreen cream!
  • Kids and early starts tend not to mix.
    It's been agreed that the kids are staying home next year!
  • Péage works from the left of the wagon - they drive on the WRONG side of the road over there!
    Consider using a Sanef electronic tag payment method for next year - there are five - possibly more - Péage stations to negotiate next year, and the less hassle and fiddling for change, the more relaxed the trip, thus more enjoyment!
  • Sundays are generally closed in France.
    If not in a hotel or B&B accommodations bring, or buy in-country, food for decent English-style breakfasts (and the facilities to prepare/cook it, too)!
Aside from the above, it was all good - and I'm looking forward to next year!
