Glad it turned out well for you.

I travelled to and from Paris last week with no problems filling up on the motorway.

We got back early Sunday morning and fortunately had no problems getting fuel(diesel), either going or returning. We just topped up 2 or 3 times on the way down and arrived with virtually a full tank. During the week we made trips into Gueret, and was able to top up without any problems.

It was a bit of a gamble to do the trip, but, as Tiddles said, everything turned out OK!!

Even the weather was good, a few frosty mornings followed by warm sunny days.

The law has been passed now, so looks as though there's little point them continuing! Not that that necessarily makes any difference, lol.

I knew it - the minute we had made the decision not to go, it was inevitable that it would all sort itself out. :evil:

I'm glad it worked out for you Tiddles and Anne-et-Steve.

A la prochaine!

Oh dear - I'm sorry Creusebear. Now you can really look forward to our next trip. Will you be going in the Christmas holidays?

We cancelled our trip over half term week, due to lack of petrol,as we didn't want to risk it.We have rebooked for Easter, but we will make a quick dash over a long weekend to close up our house for the winter.
Not quite the same as a 10 day holiday!! :cry:
