Scheduling our route to coincide with a reasonably priced flight is always somewhat difficult. The prospect of a flight wasn't that appealing and having decided to start a water-only fast during our stay in Laragne-Monteglin, driving and taking the comfort of our own home with us (instead of packing a small cabin bag) became very appealing. So before during any further South, we decided to pack up and head North, leaving late afternoon as the sun was setting on mountainside.
Making good progress, we stopped overnight in Bourg-en-Bresse with a beautiful monastery right by the aire:
The next day saw us appreciating the Autumn colours as we drove:
Enjoying our time in Luxembourg - benefiting from filling up the tank at 95 eurocents per litre!
Sunsets as we drive through Belgium:
Wake up in Holland and time to break the 10-day water fast with some tasty green juice before being reunited with a very surprised but happy Oma:
And relaxing after the long drive with a stroll along the beach at Kijkduin - where we quickly had to readjust to the Autumn chill:
It definitely felt like the right decision to drive back to Holland and at the right time.
