So, you are zooming at 130 km/h down the French highways, getting in all sorts of trouble at the points where you have to pay the toll, because you hired your car at Heathrow and the steering wheel is not exactly on the correct side, and you are going from point A to point B, because that’s what we do these days, don’t we? As fast and as uninspired as possible. It is beginning to rain and it is getting late and you begin to wish it would end, but there is a fair amount of driving yet, before reaching point B. Because you are in a foreign country and the language is different from what you are used to, you are a bit out of your comfort zone and you have to think on your feet. So suddenly you think, “Well, I don’t really need to reach point B tonight. Tomorrow is just as good a day as today for point B”. And then, you see this sign, saying Neufchătel en Bray some twenty km ahead. Somewhere very deep in your subconscious mind, you seem to remember having read about this place, so you think “I wonder what the place might be like” and before you know it, you have taken the turn. So, you are driving and there is nothing, you turn once and twice and you see the lights of a place in the valley. You are thinking, “There must be at least one hotel there” and sure enough, there is. It is called Les Airelles. Right in the middle of the town. Romain is at the reception – young, tall and elegant. Very helpful and natural. A genuine young man without any pretense. Next thing you know, you are having some very refined local cuisine and you are thinking “Point B can wait. I am having such a good time”. The hotel is in an elegant old building, reminiscent of a set from a period movie. You make a mental note to follow your reveries more often.
