Park up views the good, bad, ugly

I see you're a Park4Night fan too. It's a pity that it is no longer free to download their TomTom POIs.

These sites actually all came from the "all the Aires" books - I have the park4night web page on my laptop but hadn't used it.
Would it have saved me buying the books?
Thanks for that....Previously I've always used paper abroad, using TomTom for navigation only. Athough I'll continue taking the books I've now downloaded all the POIs I can find and am tempted to try using them exclusively and see how I get on.

Although net technology continues to improve, I'm a worrier by nature, and like hard copy to fall back on should things go wrong. Keep buying the books. ?

Holly Honey!
As you park at the Aire just north of Rouen you drive near a crucifix with a life-size Jesus mounted on a frame advertising the nearby church. After we had parked up we noticed a colony of bees were housed in Jesus's backside! No doubt by the end of the year there was honey dripping out his feet. Sorry you have to blow up the pic to see bees.DSCN2027.JPG
