    Joe:
    Our Visit to Chinon
    After much difficulty in renting a car at the Paris airport we headed to the Loire Valley with the intent of riding bicycles between chateaux. As much by happenstance as anything else, Shar chose Chinon as our location and the Hotel Gargantua as our accommodation. With a name like that how could you go wrong? …

    ... to the hotel - was about 1.5km and hopefully down hill. What I hadn't planned on was the lack of path or where there was a path it was gravel.

There was a little bit of confusion with the toilet facilities at this cafe. ...

    Sunflower fields just past their prime - ready for harvest, sunflowers are harvested for their oil not their seeds. At the corner of a number of fields there were sunflowers where the seeds had been picked out to create a smily face. The sunflower heads were huge - some would have been nearly 50 cm in diameter. Passing through a small village we saw what we had presumed was another chateaux off in the distance. We ...
