France is a highly centralised country. That also shows in the road signs. Along the motorways you seem to be able to head towards Paris at every junction. E and I often joke about it when en route in France. It turns out to be true off the motorways too. We camped in Gigny-sur-Saône, a vilage of 500 people on the eastern edge of the Bourgogne. We weren’t in the village proper even, but in a hamlet near it. Right outside the campground there was an aging road sign. Pointing to Paris obviously (400km away). And to Lyon (125km). Both pointers aren’t of any practical navigational use for the many narrow countryroads in the region. Every time I spotted the sign when leaving the campground I had to smile.
