The river cruise down the Rhône sounded
idyllic: TGV to Avignon, then pick up the boat,
spend a day in Avignon before setting off, visit
Arles and Chateau Neuf du Pape, Orange, and
finally the Camargue. But apart from these
excursions, the cruise itself was very
disappointing - there was no river traffic to
speak of, the river's banks were built up so
high as flood defence that you couldn't see
anything from river level, and the only
distractions on board were to eat, eat or eat. But since we were both on a diet, that
wasn't much of an option either! For the first time in years we were bored enough to
write postcards. The boat was a microcosm of English society at its best and worst: we
met some lovely people, artisan-types, some good salt-of-the-earth types, and some
utter snobs; we met them all since 'guests' were rotated around the tables at meal-times
and there was never the opton to sit with new-found friends. We resolved not to be
tempted again by a newspaper ad for a cruise, and never have been.
