Ahhhhh Lumiere, a place everyone must visit at least once. It's one of those iconic derelict buildings which is instantly recognisable and very popular, and standing in it I could see why. It's utterly, utterly beautiful, there must be so much money tied up in the place that for it to be just sat there quietly decaying in a little French town in the middle of nowhere is a tragedy.

To say the journey here was fraught is an understatement, it took us 16 hours from leaving my house until we pulled up outside it. The M25 was a nightmare, the ferry was over an hour late, and on the journey through France we had to keep pulling over in rest stops because of the very real danger one of the two tasked with driving was going to fall asleep at the wheel. But eventually we made it and what a relief we got in and out with no dramas. Was it worth it? Hell yeah!!

This was the first location on what was to become my favourite Euro trip so far, explored in the brilliant company of Lee Jambon and Barry the Bitch Destroyer.

It's a hell of a long way but absolutely 100% worth it, it's breathtaking
