Well I was really enjoying my day, until it came to camping tonight!
I thought it was rather busy in Nantes as I cycled through earlier, and I found out why when I got to the campsite.
There’s a jazz festival going on, which is all well and good, apart from it gives everyone the excuse to bump their prices up, and when I say bump, I mean more like stick a rocket under it and see how high we can go!
After hearing the poor little girl trying to justify the price tonight to me. Telling me about the jazz festival, I thought there’s not a lot of point in trying to look anywhere else! So reluctantly I stayed and camped.
Now what you have to remember is that this not just any ordinary campsite, this is a 5 star campsite!And I’m also on a premier pitch, for which I get, electricity, a barbecue, sun loungers, a table bench, a TV aerial point and a fridge all in a little shed! And it’s only cost me €50! 50 bloody euros! I’ve paid less to stop in hotels!
How they can justify it is beyond me! But I suppose all the time there’s idiots like me willing to pay it!!
As I said earlier it’s been a good day, apart from tonight! I started off following the Nantes to Brest canal, then it was onto country roads. The only busy road was when I crossed over the Loire at Saint-Nazaire and then once over it was all cycle paths.
