No room at the aire

Bertry station
We're off to Europe for ten nights. The first and last nights are to be spent on a French aire de camping car. These are small parking areas, usually free, for motorhomes. There are hundreds along the motorways, but our preferred aires are in small villages and so we choose Bertry enroute to Cologne.

We arrived at 11.45pm to find four motorhomes had already filled all pitches. This aire had free electric hook-ups and it was no wonder it was popular. We parked Cleopatra next to the official pitches, on the verge outside the train station. We were on the road by 7.15am so it's unlikely anyone knew we'd even been there.
