Summer holiday is here
It's now been two years since I was made redundant from my job of 22 years and a little over a year since I started my own business dog walking. At the start of our summer holiday last year I only had two clients. This year I have eight regulars taking 21 hours of walks between them each week. Last month was my busiest ever and yesterday my busiest day - I walked six dogs a total of 15 miles in seven hours. My legs need a rest!
I'm enjoying being the passenger in Cleopatra while Tony drives us to tonight's stopover near Dijon. Tomorrow we've booked a campsite on Lake Annecy for the night and then we're heading into Italy for a night before catching and early ferry on Monday from Savona to Corsica.
You may remember that we visited Corsica last summer. It's a huge island and we loved so much about it and so, when we decided we needed some kind of plan, booking a ferry to Corsica was an easy choice.
This year we've got three and a half weeks. We've bagged cheaper crossings by swapping our departure from Nice in France to Savona in Italy. The crossing times are more convenient too since sailings from Nice are now at 2pm while from Savona they're at 7.30am, letting us arrive at a campsite in the early afternoon.
We plan on returning to our three favourite campsites from last year (no, not the naturist one!), and have found three more that will let us see a bit more of the island.
Before then we have the familiarity of one of our favourite aires tonight and we get to see Lake Annecy which has been on our bucket list for a while!
See you there.
