We left Germany today heading for Luxembourg to fill up with diesel and get some cheap tobacco. We set off early as we’re not sure how long our journey will take.
Most of the journey was on toll free motorways, it took about an hour to drive from Trier to Route 66 in Windhof, Luxembourg, the shop sells cheap tobacco, cigarettes, beer and spirits. Co-ordinates N 49º38.837’ E 5º57.544’.
We also filled up with diesel at the Total service station not far from the shop, co-ordinates N 49º7.815’ E 5º57.255’.
Diesel was 1.18€ ltr and 1.28€ ltr for super diesel, in the Mosel we were paying 1.48€. It was a strange journey, we drove into Luxembourg then into Belgium for a bit then back into Luxembourg.
The weather isn’t very good today, overcast and a bit chilly.
We were heading for the Aire at Stenay in Eastern France, there are not many aires in this reigion and many of them don’t accommodate big motorhomes.
When we arrived at the aire the barrier was down, there is a notice (also in English) instructing you to call at the Capitainerie (Marina office) which is open from 2.00pm to 6.00pm or the Tourist Office open from 10.00am 12.00am and closed on a Sunday for the gate code.
If you arrive outside these hours there is Motorhome Parking next to the Capitainerie on the other side of the river.
