After our stay in Troyes we continued our trip. We flew over the Massif Central towards the Alps where we had a late lunch break at Chambéry. Then we crossed the Alps, for which we had to gain height to 1200 feet.
We finished our first day of our fly over Europe tour, at Troyes in the Champagne area of France.
We started the day at Lelystad Airport. The initial plans were to fly to Germany, but after checking the weather forecast we decided to fly to France.
The last 5 days were mostly on the road and finding out that even on the good roads in Europe, the troubled roads of Belgium disregarded, with the Yellow Monster 300 KM a day is quit a challenge. Moreover, it is dark early.
In Belgium I wild camped around the town of Ypres, known for the First World War. The route to it consisted mainly of a lot of wrong driving and getting to know the quirks of my GPS.
