Finally the dream come thru, a home, a restaurant, a motorbike and une femme all mobile, today Le Jura

Le Jura is close to Burgundy, why didn’t I visit it before coming to Australia….Le Jura produce some very good wines, some will say the best in the world, they even call it a wine of kings for the kings…, I think it is a bit much, it is a very acquired taste, it can be very very old like 40 years old. Just call it the real name “Vin Jaune”but don’t expect to be like any other wines you taste before.  The Jura is full of lakes and old mountains, not very high for very picturesque, the high Jura, on the way to Switzerland has many ski stations.

I hope I'm like this one day. 96 years old. But I have to live in the country in a small village with no TV or internet, only a few relatives and a few friends. Not many of either one...

After a hard days at the office nothing like a glass of Pinot from Burgundy, no Vin Jaune from the Jura….Few of my friends won’t agree, but such is life in a camping car, I will be gone before they find me :-)
