This was the first of a few trips my wife and I had planned for 2014. Myleene on her Street Triple 675. Me on my XR.
A simple long weekend over in Lille. However, due ot a cock up with the hotel parking is ended up as a weekend in Boulogne-sur-mer
The following day we set out to Lille on the back roads. We came across a place that I have been trying to visit for several years. La Coupole.
It was being built towards the end of WW2 by the Nazi’s and a launch pad for the V2 bombs. The bombs were destined for London.
After La Coupole we continued on to Lille and finally arrived at our hotel.
Unfortunately the hotel didn’t have the parking facilities it promised so we cancelled the booking. No big problem but neither of us are able to carry anything heavy for any distance due to spinal issues.
We were able to stay in another hotel for the night so all was ok.
We had a couple of drinks and something to eat and decided to head to Boulogne-sur-mer on the coast for the weekend the following day, instead of staying in Lille.
Then it was time to head home.
Nice and easy run and good to get out in the spring time.
