August is hot. August is humid. August is the start of school.
But, I’ve got a plan. I’m not staying home. Can you guess where I’m going? Here are a few hints:
- “City of Lights”
- Joan of Arc’s childhood home
- Château de Chambord and Château Chenonceau
- Place des Quinconces in Bordeaux
- Garonne River to Cadillac
Did you guess? I’m heading to France with my husband. It will be a double celebration, our 40th anniversary and an early birthday celebration for me.
We are doing a pre-river cruise extension, four days in the Loire Valley. Then we will board a riverboat to explore the Bordeaux region on the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers. The cruise is named Châteaux, Rivers, and Wine, now that’s the way to finish off the summer.
Guess I need to lose some weight so I can find it in the pâtisseries we will visit at every turn of the rivers. I booked it and I can’t wait!
