This time we are heading to Uzes in the Languedoc-Rousillon region to stay in a house with a swimming pool and all the mod cons (indoor toilet and shower - yipee!). According to t'internet Uzes is a medieval town with a population of around 8,000.
In preparation for the trip I've been out and bought a phrase book. I know a few french words from my school days - du pain, du vin and du fromage, so we won't die of thirst and hunger - but it is 30 years since I left school so I'll definitely need to brush up on the lingo.
I've also been sorting out the travel insurance. I did the search through confused.com (very aptly named for me), and the cover that most suited our needs came in at £59.50 for a family of four. This obviously has to take into account my medical history.
Just for the 'fun' of it I got a quote without any medical history being declared and it came back at £31.25. I was actually quite surprised at how little difference there was and remember thinking the same last year when we went to Italy. I've no idea where all the scary stories come from about insurance being sky high if you've been ill.
Tonight I'll be going through our holiday clothes. I don't think any of us need much so I'm hoping it won't cost us more than the price of a couple of new t-shirts and shorts for Amy & Thomas.
Bonsoir mon ami.
