Lovin' The Loire Valley

Yes, it's been like FIVE WEEKS since I've written on this blog, which still amazes me because it seems to have been just a blur of activities, beautiful weather, and visitors. But I'm back, and this time with information on our upcoming Loire Valley trip. I don't know about all of you, but I am really looking forward to hanging with everyone on the rock n' roll tour bus and checking out a new part of France. Oh yeah, and the castles and stuff.

So, I thought I'd give you some helpful links to check out before we go and a basic rundown of our travel itinerary:

Day One

We're leaving our place at 9:00 AM sharp, which is a little better than the 8:00 AM time for Normandy, right?
Our first stop will be the Chateau de Langeais, and then we will be going to Chateau d'Azay-le-rideau doing a sack lunch there and then it's off to spend the night in Tours.

Day Two

First thing on day two we'll head off to the Château de Chenonceau for a self guided tour, and then we're off to Amboise for lunch and to see the Château d'Amboise, this time with our own personal tour guide à la Chartres Cathedral. After that tour, we will be off to see Clos Lucè, which was, hello, the home of Leonardo Da Vinci. How cool is that? After all that, it's back to the bus and off to Blois for dinner and to stay the night.

Day Three

Saturday morning we'll walk to the close by Château de Blois for a tour (avec guide!) and then we'll get back on the rock star bus and we're off to see the Château de Chambord before we head back to Paris!

Seriously. How cool is all that stuff.

It's going to be a fantastic trip, and our last chance to all travel together (sniff, sniff). Can't wait!

À Bientôt!
