I’m taking a short autumn break with my family in northern France in the Aisne region staying at a holiday parc at Berny Riviere with Eurocamp. We spent the day exploring the holiday parc of La Croix du Vieux Pont, that has two lakes as well as all the sporting facilities you could wish for, and looked around the village of Vic-sur-Aisne with it’s pretty small chateau in the town square.
A drive down to the military cemetery on the edge of town reminded us that this area was on the front line of two world wars, with places like Somme, Cambrai and Arras to be passed on the motorway drive from Calais. The military cemetery here recalls those times, and as my husband is a former tank commander, a visit to Cambrai and to the cemetery near Arras, where his great uncle is buried, is on the cards. It’ll be a reality check compared the trip to Disneyland Resort Paris that we also hope to make while we’re here.
