IMG_1461After a final walk about Avallon and we set off with the intention of going to Dijon via the scenic Michelin route. Sadly this was defeated by the head cold as the inside of a helmet is not a place you want to be with a runny nose.

We stopped near the Burgundy canal around Chateauneuf for a long break and I tried to get accommodation in Dijon via the iPhone but this turned out to be pretty difficult as Dijon seems to be very busy. Finally opted for a Logis de France (the St Vincent) at nearby Nuit St Georges and rode there. The head cold department was pretty unhappy by this point.IMG_1470

Dinner at the restaurant downstairs (l’Alambic) was unremarkable and probably best forgotten. Happily the room we had was large (although it only had a skylight) and the bed very comfortable.
