The last day of a wonderful trip

A travel blog entry by marychaffin


... founded by the Michelin Tire guy..he wanted people to drive so they would buy tires and his solution was to produce guide books. They started out as places to drive to but then they added points of interest, hotels and then restaurants. Then he added the star rating...expecting people to go further for really good food. This year there are 28 3 star restaurants in France. We are lucky enough to eat at one. And 3 stars is the highest rating for a restaurant. We ...

LaGrasse and drinking more wine

A travel blog entry by marychaffin

We went for a 7.5 mile hike on a mountain bike trail to Rolinka's and Antonine's house. They live in a shepherd's house that they are remodeling to be a B&B. They want everything old like, but with ...

The Cathars and Pope Innocent (not so innocent?)

A travel blog entry by marychaffin


Woke up feeling ******...maybe it was the pate...maybe the cheese...maybe too much wine...maybe dehydrated...maybe all of the above. I skipped breakfast, drank 32 ounces of water, took 6 rolaids and 3 advil and just sat back and took it easy. Since I wasn't feeling well I got to sit in the front seat of the van... that was plus...I usually volunteer for the back seat because I have short legs.We headed to Cucugnan...a small hill village in the foothills of the ...
