La Côte d'Or
Friday, 17 July 2009 16:25

We are renting a car and going away for the weekend.  We are happy to be heading back to the Côte-d'Or where our French adventure started in January of 2000.  Not only do we love department 21 for sentimental reasons, but it is also one of the most beautiful areas in France.  The purpose of the trip is to go to an event called "Savigny en Tous Sens" that our friends on "La Lavande" went to a few years ago, and have been raving about it ever since.  Hiking, wine tasting, lunch and dancing sounded like fun to us, so we signed up a few months ago and planned a weekend around it.

Funny, it is much easier to prepare to go away on the barge, because when we cruise, we take the whole kit and kaboodle with us. Preparing for this weekend trip has taken us all day packing just one little suitcase, getting rental car and hotel reservation confirmation papers together, gathering up chargers for the camera and phone, and trying to make sure that we don't leave anything else at home.
