José and her father wanted to visit the l'Agriculture in Paris once.
We decided to visit it during the weekend of February 25-27 2011. And when one is in Paris
for the first time, we had to visit at least some of the famous architectural highlights of the city.
At sunday we dropped of José's dad at the trainstation Gare du Nord and drove straight to the Champagne area,
to have some time on our own.


Here we stayed from February 27 until March 3 2011, where we put up our tent in Arrigny,
just a stone-throw away from the famous Lac Du Der Chantecoq. It was nice to camp again, allthough quite cold
(we had some night frost at least one night!).


Since we visited Paris in 2011, my father-in-law wanted to visited the home area of the race of sheep
he liked most at the L'Agriculture: the 'Mouton Charollais', which originates in the Bourgogne area in the eastern part of France.
In the spring of 2012 he decided that it must happen in 2012, and during the summer period this idea turned into an invitation
to join my parents-in-law for a one week holiday. We stayed in the area from September 1 to September 9, 2012.
Daytrips and walks around the area diversified with visiting local farmers and exploring the agriculture south
of the National Park 'Du Morvan'; an area which is called Charollais. It turned out just fine. We had some good weather,
saw some nice things and especially butter-, damsel- and dragonflies where abundant.


Unfortunate my father-in-law was unable to buy him a ram of the race Mouton Charrolais in 2012.
So, when he found out that at August 2nd, 2013 a Concours was held in Palinges (also Bourgogne),
he suggested that we should go back to France once more. And so we did!
From July 31 untill August 4, 2013 we stayed at a campsite near Palinges, visited the Concours on friday,
and tried to do some dragonfly-watching in the area.


Every first week of March we try to get on a holiday. In search for something new we decided to go to southern France in 2014.
Again, and the fourth year in a row. We stayed their from March 4 untill March 10, 2014.
We have visited some famous sites like the Camargue, La Crau, Les Alpilles and Mont Ventoux.
On a culture detour we also came across Pont-du-Gard and Les Baux-de-Provence.
Weather was good, birds coöperated a little and we had a wonderfull time.
