Continuing our tour riding from Saumur to the Charming Village of Vaas France

So, after our visit to the lovely Saumur it was time to continue our journey and ride to Vaas.
I wondered what the next village would be like, whilst taking pictures happily on the back of the bike with the bike purring in my ear as it moved along the beautiful roads of France.
The views were as charming and scenic as the previous riding we had done throughout our tour.
Mike and Jackie were always on my mind too as we rode and I just hoped that they were enjoying the ride as much as we were.
I've included a couple of videos in this blog post and I hope there ok, I know their short but it does give me a sense of being back in the saddle again.
We arrive to the charming village of Vaas in France and were not at all disappointed.
The b&b that we were staying at was situated smack bang in the centre of the village.
Once we had parked up the bikes and booked in we were shown to our rooms, and spot on for bikers they were.
On this trip I would actually say that this b&b was the best for facilities.
I'll go into more depth with the b&b's when we have finished the tour.
Now, there's a story to share with you here.
At first I thought it was just creaking of the building, and then my over active brain made me think that there was a ghost in the building!
As I knew hubby was really tired I didn't dare wake him as I knew he would be really really grumpy with me.
Instead I laid there, with the pillow over my head trying not to hear the noise and eventually fell back to sleep after what seemed to be hours of tossing and turning!
The problem was that it didn't end there...
I was woken by hubby at what seemed like five minutes later saying what's that awful banging noise!
I could hear movement outside of our door and hubby got out of bed and went out onto the corridor only to find Mike staring up at a what looked like a window in the roof.
I could hear Mike and hubby saying that they would have to ring the owner as there was absolutely no way we were going to get any sleep.
The loud dripping continued....
Me, well I was by now so sleepy that eventually when hubby returned back to bed fell asleep immediately!
As for Mike, Jackie and hubby I don't think they slept a wink!
Finally, well, in the morning you can imagine how grumpy we were (meaning hubby and me) we couldn't even go to breakfast!
We just didn't want to share our moody ways with Mike and Jackie. Both of us are and always have been the sort of couple that love our beauty sleep and Mike and Jackie on the other hand seem to be the total opposite!
So, we both felt it best that we go and sit in the bar opposite the hotel and have our coffee!
I was so grumpy! I knew that I would have to go for a walk alone away from any human beings to shake of my mood before meeting up with Mike and Jackie again by the bikes, oh and of course hubby!
So, that's exactly what I did.
And I was so pleased I did!
I don't know if you believe in fate, but me I do....
It seemed to me that every way I turned there was something beautiful to explore here in Vaas.
It was, absolutely charming...
|How cute is this!|
|A smashing bakery can be found in this row of shops|
|I really need to investigate whether this hotel does indeed have a tale to tell!|
Really! I find that odd being that we had had quite a lot of rain, were we the first to complain, I suppose we will never know!
|I don't want to leave the charming village of Vaas!|
Now, I have been through Le Mans before but had not explored the town.
Knowing full well that this is one of the Motogp's venues I looked forward to what was coming up next.
Ride safe, look after each other, until next time.
