Potential bump in the road

Planning complete.  Restaurant list looking good.  French rail strike – what?

Just when we thought that everything was in place, the French rail union has called a strike or ‘La Grève’.  French unions are different from unions in other places in that they actually post a schedule of the days that the work stoppage will occur.

France Train Strike Dates

Looking at the schedule, April and May don’t come into play, however, June is another story.  It just so happens that one of the strike days is the day we arrive and plan to take the train to Nantes.

“Oh bother”, said Pooh.

So for now, we are holding our breath and hoping for a settlement.  Meanwhile, we’re checking alternative travel means – but a seven hour bus trip is not how I want to start vacation.
