Les Vosges, Lac de Gerardmer et Le Chablis

Chablis is very close to Burgundy so it is a good detour on the way to Gerardmer in the Vosges region. The ballon d’Alsace, I was told, is a beautiful ride on the motorbike without forgetting the col de la Shultz on the way.

One of my best ride ever and every night the comfort of home, and a home cook meal in the camping car

La cave de Bailly a must for wine connoisseurs. The cave is situated in the village of Bailly near Chablis and is big enough for the camping car. Sorry I don't have photos you probably don't believe me :-(
