Top tip. When your partner assures you they’ve checked the route and made a note of the charging stations, just double check their notes before you set off.
Otherwise you sweep up to an Aire de Repos all set to charge and 😬 there are no chargers. Not one.
Turns out he mistook one aire for another a few miles further on – which of course we sailed past.
On came the REx and now we’re at Lidl in Bully les Mines using their free, but oh so slow charge point.
Next stop Laon. Where already we can see that only one of the two posts is working. Will we make it to Châlons en Champagne before midnight?
