Besancon to Freiburg

We left Nolay in fog and had it for most of the morning.  We got to Besancon to experience blue skies.

Besancon is a lovely French town with a large student population and a fort on the hills overlooking it.

We wandered around and found a local restaurant for lunch - the proximity of Switzerland is apparent on the menus available.

The city cathedral was ornate and had an astronomical clock which you could view from the inside and the outside of the church.

We hit the road for Freiburg, Germany and our Tom Tom GPS insisted on sending us down a small country road with no road markings and a speed limit of 30km/h for 15 km before joining us up with a 'proper' road.
