Here's a little travelogue from our day on the bus going from the top of Normandie to Soreze in the Southwest of France -not so far from Spain. While bus travel is sometimes long it works out better for us - the airlines won't take our amount of baggage on internal flights - changing train stations in Paris ( and elsewhere) in July would have been a monumental drag - so we sat on the bus, patronized rest stops, played cards, and, 15 hours later there we were!
