“The hidden jewel”

Inveterate travellers as they are, you should always trust an Aussie when they say they have found a gem.

We think so anyway, especially when the gem is… Uzès.

Check out why:

‘The end of an era on French roads!’

A word of advice for those planning to drive in France: you may still carry your cases of Puligny-Montrachet :)) but you must also have with you a self-testing breathalyser kit as of 1st July if you don’t want to be fined (11 euro on-the-spot fine from 1st November). Kits cost between 2-5 euros and can be purchased in petrol stations, supermarkets and pharmacies. No IQ testing kit in the cards as yet.
