Friday was a public holiday in France to commemorate the end of the First World War. We took a trip to the town Pourcain Sur Sioule to watch their ceremony. It was a cold wet day and somehow fitting.
Before we went we did some history 101, regarding the role of France in the war and massive toll it took.
Every Hotel de Ville, every memorial, every Government building is covered with French flags.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
