…La Rochelle, in summer, is a busy tourist town. Plenty to see and places to eat.


So famous for it’s oysters it has a vending machine for late-night cravings.

We hired a jaunty four-seater push bike to explore. As we pedalled, we wished a “Bon Jour” or  a “Bon Journeé” to all and sundry, young and old, honking our squeaky horn, like a mini-car full of clowns. Their smiles, waves and playful reactions? Priceless. No, we were not drunk. Bit high on life, tho’.
