second stop-over

Arrived at our second stop-over on the journey back - Amiens, possibly our favourite city in North East France. Having wondered around town and around the fabulous canal and water park area, we are getting ready to go and eat at a restaurant overlooking the river - which just happens to be the Somme.

It's an incredibly beautiful town with a lovely cathedral - one that rivals all the good ones, I reckon - and a great atmosphere which I suspect has something to do to the blend of history and the hordes of young people studying at the large university. There's a chilled vibrancy (if that's not an oxymoron) about the place.

Then tomorrow, we top up with wine, hop on the ferry and will be home to swelter in London's heat wave!
