When we were offered the opportunity to be hosted at Camping Les Fontaines a family friendly campsite in France we jumped at the chance! We had never been to France with the kids and we never say no to an adventure.
Damien and Kayleigh from Camping Les Fontaines were quick to communicate all the details of our trip and even organised some complimentary activities and bed linen kits with towels. It would not have occurred to me to pack bed linen and we never take towels, as always travel very light with only hand luggage so this saved a lot of space. We decided to fly from our local airport, Norwich, via Schipol to Geneva. The idea was to make life simpler and cut out driving time. In reality, we missed our connecting flight due to a flight delay, and got stuck at Schipol for 5 hours. 50 euros of complimentary vouchers softened the blow and bought us 2 rounds of drinks. Large wines for grownups, obviously. Kids oblivious to waiting about and were quite happy reading their kindles and plane watching. I read a whole book from my charity shop splash out; Five thrillers for a fiver. We were advised to put a claim in for the 5 hour delay by the KLM desk but the email we received in return stated extreme weather was the cause of the delay. My idea of extreme weather being hurricanes or tsunamis, is clearly very different from their’s.
