It’s never too late... To take a trip
Change the scenery of your life.
You don’t have to travel far.
It’s an adventure.
A chance to refresh. To Learn. To compare.
To meet new people.
To make new friends.
To view things anew.
“Travel broadens the mind” Proverb
Graham was convinced that our GPS should work and so after resetting it, voilá -it sprang into action! We added destinations and were ready to put it to the test.
We have now visited 3 Chateaux in the Loire Valley - all unique and magnificent. Tapestries, furnishings all from the renaissance period 16-18th Centuries. I was especially surprised to see the curtain fabric and wall coverings in a couple of the bedrooms– very “French General” in type. (French General is a Moda range of patchwork fabrics recently available in Australia) Considering the age of these “originals” I was blown away.

This chateau was our favourite by a long shot and we’re glad that we’d left it to the last to see.
My French is improving everyday and communication is quite easy really. Most people in the hospitality industry speak English too, but they are very happy for us to try. This is a wonderful country for a holiday!
