Cote du Rhone

Nasty bed last night, woke up with a sore neck and a headache that has gotten progressively worse all day. Missed breakfast as well just to add insult to injury! So a bit grumpy, lucky I'm travelling alone!

Did my best to enjoy the sights. Went into the village of Vogue and got a coffee and croissant to start, then wandered through the little streets up to the Chateau.

The style of the houses is quite different than it was down south. Stone work is greyer here and more sombre, much less colour and little decoration.

So today I headed north, basically travelling along the Rhone river through Cotes du Rhone wine country. Being grumpy and headachy I didn't stop often, but did take a few photos here and there...this one is a bridge across the Rhone with my wee car in the foreground. IMG_5882.jpg

While hunting for somewhere to stop for lunch stumbled across a tiny little village with a tiny little chateau. IMG_5883.jpg

Lunch was a bugger up. After searching for ages decided to grab something from a bakery before the midday shut down, then drove 5 minutes to the next village where there were more little cafes lining the road than you could poke a stick at!

Won't bore you with the story of the village with the tiny one way roads that the GPS thought were two-way!

Anyway, cut the day short, have booked into a hotel in Ampuis, a stones throw south of Vienne. Village has an impressive cChateau which is a completely different architecture to the ones I've seen so far, much prettier! IMG_5890.jpg

The final picture is the view of the vineyards from my hotel window.IMG_5893.jpg

Not a stellar day, hopefully tomorrow will be an improvement!
