DhdT Hogwarts Express

After our walk it was time to leave. Close to the RV camp was an Aldi, so we stocked up on our groceries and set out for the next stop. As distances are not quite what we're used to in Australia we could take our time and managed to drive from Germany into France and north into Luxembourg all within a few hours. In the meantime we found this cache on our way to Thionville in France:
Ligne Maginot : la cloche
We went on to Thionville however and found a free parking spot in the centre of town. I had to carefully manoeuvre the camper around the corners and the boom gate, but managed to park it quite decently in the small space of an ordinary car. Thank heavens it was Monday morning and there were not too many cars about!
We walked into town and took in the sights. Searched for a cache that eventually eluded us and found a nice small restaurant where we had lunch:
EvTh - l'autel de la Patrie
|The square where we looked in vain for our cache|
|My delicious lunch: cheese, cheese and more cheese... Did I tell you I love cheese? ;-)|

The highway was going to lead through Luxembourg city, but as Dianne expected us to end up in the city she wanted me to take another route. Not clearly thinking because of another headache I obliged, but it would have been so much easier to keep on going, because all we needed was a camping north of the city.
When I felt well enough to drive again we went on for a short bit to a camping near Heiderscheid: The Fuussekaul. A neat and tidy RV site on one site of the road, and cabins, caravan and tent sites on the other side with clean and modern toilet blocks.
Of course Dianne couldn't help herself and went immediately in search of a cache together with Patricia. I had a much needed rest and went for a short walk later to also write my name in the logbook.
