Unexpected delights

Out walking with the LWD and approaching the centre of Villeneuve-léz-Avignon, I saw a familiar sight. You can recognise them anywhere, the ubiquitous car boot sale. The difference being that whilst English car boot sales are generally out of town in a large (frequently muddy) field, this one, with all roads closed to traffic, was in the town centre. It made for a great atmosphere; every narrow, windy street was full of stalls and busy shoppers. In the town square as well as the stalls all the cafés were open, shaded outside tables full.

The “official sights” were good too!

  1. When you have the limited space in the motorhome, how do you stop yourself from buying bits and pieces when travelling around these places? 🙂

    1. With the greatest of difficulty, but being on a very small budget helps!! I do buy fridge magnets and glue them on to cupboard fronts. 😀
