Discovering a small part of France: Auvergne and its endless small roads...

This all started a couple of years ago when I was helping a couple of Inmates from the UK plan a visit to the part of France where I grew up. As I was linking small towns in mapsource using very scenic backroads, I realized that I had left the place before I really got into Adventure riding and that I needed to get back to it!

Fast forward to this spring and I emailed a couple of my riding buddies and told them that this year was the year and that I was going to make it happen! By the time the dust settled RVSparky and I were the only two who committed to the trip.

In the next couple of weeks, I'll be sharing our travel, but for now a few teaser pictures

My standard program for a vacation in France has always been: 1st week in Paris (naturalment!). The next 1-2 weeks are spent out in the countryside. So far I've explored Paris/Alsace, Paris/Burgundy, & Paris/Haute Savoy. I'm going again next spring & I'm looking for a good place to base myself & explore after Paris. I've been thinking Brittany, but your 1st pictures may have moved Auvergne up the possibles list.
