Velomobile Road Trip with Brigitte and Fritz (Day 18)

Day 18.


Malaucene > Avignon > Pont-du-Gard > Avignon

116 km



Today we let it go a little more relaxed and set off only around 10:00 o'clock. The first part of the route to Carpentras we could let it roll. Afterwards it went a little more laboriously by many small places, whose passages were made difficult by many speed bumps.

In Avignon arrived we built up on the camping site on the right river side only fast the tent, and drove then to Pont-du-Gard. The Aqueduct from Roman times is an absolute must see. We jumped briefly into the Gard, and then drove back again. This time on the big road along the river.


We made an interesting observation. The road is quite busy also from some trucks. Here the French overtook more often very closely or drove also times more densely on. After some had annoyed us, I took out Insta 360° on a stick and held it up about 50 cm from the cockpit. All of a sudden, all of the drivers were very civilized again and no longer harassed us. The camera was not even turned on. The mere existence of the little black cube was enough to discipline everyone.


Arrived in Avignon, we showered and ate something and then walked across the bridge to Avignon in the old town. We found a nice restaurant right in front of the Pope's palace and enjoyed the evening.
