Roamin' from Reims to Rome travel blog

We start today along the canal in light misty rain

But even in the mist there are pretty places

And even little waterfalls

We stop at a bar for morning coffee

We look out of place amongst the local men there drinking alcohol...

On we ride following the canal cycle path

We pass lots of barges

And today is a study of different types of opening bridges

Yet another opening bridge

And the réfections were lovely at times

It’s another opening bridge

Suddenly we realise the canal has been built across (over) a river!

Everyone scrambled for photos

Tom keeps an eye on our route

Roman looks particularly fetching in a shower cap

It’s a picnic lunch in a bus shelter today

An old mill


Love those old washing places - lavoirs

Plane but lovely inside. Toms backpack light it and we had to...

Following the VR53 all day

Helen tries to fix a bike problem.

Massive silos along canal
