We started the day (after a quick breakfast in our room) by walking around the Medieval town of Provins. Being as UNESCO Heritage site, most of the old town was much more 14th Century, instead of the most common 18th and mid-19th Centuries.

Feeling queasy from this rather than the boat....) Easy drive down to Reims in the rain, where we arrived earlier than planned. Was ...
