Small geography lesson: France is made up of regions and departments. One of these departments is Lozère. Which is surrounded by Cantal, Haute-Loire, Ardèche, Gard and Aveyron. That, in itself is not so special. But it is also the second most sparsely populated county (after French Guiana), and the highest of all in its entirety. In other words, a pack of nature and not as many people. I checked out if the 9 hour drive from Ghent was well worth it.
After 5 days hopping around and cruising my Fiat I can say: yes! Yes Yes Yes! Hop in your car and drive down there. Seriously!
