Discovering the old Chateau de Res. Whatever is left of it.

THere used to be a waterway under the chateau. A very smart design, there is a lake nearby. It was easy to connect it to the chateau with a small canal.

I’ve always used the Marathon tires. Even though they are not as fast as the sleek Kojaks, the Marathons are super strong and super reliable.

Razor taxi

My route:  board the TGV at Montparnasse to get to Poitiers.  At Poitiers, there’s a little local train to  Montmorillon. And I still have 16 kilometers to get home. No public transit!

Pour aller de Montmorillon à La Trim, j’ai utilisé ce scooter des enfants. Il fonctionnait très bien.

Solution: the little red-wheeled Razor scooter!

It worked very well. This is my travel gear at Poitiers.
