La Rochelle, the Calm Before the Storm – Day 4

Thursday 16th July 2009 – France
Got showered, had a bite to eat then packed up the tent. I realized it was going to be a pain in the arse to keep rolling up the tent, sleeping bag and mat each and every morning, so i just chucked it all on the back seat of the car and set out.
