Since weeks we are ready to go. But tooth ache, dentist, grandparent’s duties delay our departure again and again. Finally nothing more is in our way, we can start and our direction is south. A stork circles above Alsace, leftover from last year or is it a messenger of spring? Soon we reach the announced rain front. We know a good place for the night on the river Doubs.
The sun is shining, fresh baquette, fresh croissant, a heron at the bank – a good start in the day. The natur is also ready to start. We see a few primroses on the amazing green meadows and sometimes a blooming tree. But this all ends when our TomTom leads us via small roads to an altitude of 1400 meters (Gerbier de Jonc). Here is still snow, but the view is gorgeous. We will stay! And guess what we find next to our place? The source of the Loire!
