Paris-Bordeaux- Marseilles- Monte Carlo- Nice
We’ve been planning this trip since Dec 2011!
The tickets were booked in Jan. The hotels and chateau booking done by Feb and the itinerary fixed and tasks assigned. (I’m in charge of where to eat while in Paris and our itinerary for Monte Carlo and Nice :D).
I’m dyyying to try out all the cheese and wine and everything else french I can get my hands on (food-wise :P) once I’m there!
The town we’re staying at in Bordeaux is renowned for their foie gras. The 13th century chateau we’re staying at while we’re there is nestled in a 450 hectare estate, half of which is untamed forest with foxes and wild hogs running around. The place has its own stables, a stream where we can play around in when we’re tired of the pool, and a vineyard, among other things.
I’m slightly worried about the chateau being so old and possibly haunted, so I’m gonna make sure I drink enough wine to not be worried about any other kind of spirits bothering me in the night! ;) Other than that, the only thing that slightly worries me is my complete lack of knowledge in french! I only know oui! and merci beaucoup! What will I do there without Google Translate?!
By the time you read this, I’ll be in France already. Hoping this little sojourn turns out to be as awesome as we imagine it to be. See you on the other side of this holiday!
