They talked about them – We saw them

So many people are exploring the globe and so many are talking about some wonders and marvels.

But, it is only by going there that you realise the sizes and dimensions of the cities and buildings.

However, not all constructions are in cities, if that makes sense.

Take the example of the French castles – or “châteaux” as the French call them – most of them are in the countryside.

There are about 30 of them in the Loire Valley. So, where is the Loire Valley region ?

Easy way to go there is by Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord. Catch the métro to Gare Montparnasse and jump in a TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse), that’s the High Speed Train and you are there.

Lovely surroundings…flat landscapes, loads of fields – all very quaint.

So, here is a sample of what we saw.

Chambord

Cheverny

Chenonceau

So, is that not tempting ? And we haven’t spoken about the food and wine yet !
