It was a bit of a noisy night at the marina aire in Charleville-Mézières. The occasional car isn’t a problem but some goose decided on playing duff, duff music across the way about 2 am. Anyway he went off to spread joy elsewhere after 30 minutes or so with peace and sleep returning.
We have a couple of days up our sleeve, so rather than risk another restless night we decide to head north into the western Ardennes. The Ardennes is the great forest that runs across part of northern France, lower Belgium to Germany. We service the Hymer and head north. I have set the co-ordinates for an aire in Montherme on La Meuse River. The reviews are excellent, but unfortunately it’s full when we arrive. As its the weekend most people wouldn’t be going anywhere at this stage of the afternoon.
So we continue on another 15 kilometres to Revin, also on the La Meuse.
There is a laundramat outside the adjacent supermarket, so we throw a load in whilst we have coffee and croissants.
