... truly a gourmet meal and we left feeling satisfied but not over-filled as is often the case at North American restaurants. Our final stop for the day was a field of sunflowers in our way home to take some beautiful sunset shots. Day 2 we decided to do something different. We borrow a couple of bikes from our host and hit the trails. There are many bicycles paths in the area and I think we would need a couple of weeks to explore them all. We rode amongst the ...
... it would rain soon, so we pedalled hard to get to our destination before the rain would start. The path followed a farm on one side and park on the other side closer to the river. This area was swampy and the path was covered in swarms of small bugs. We were pelted by bugs for 10km, my legs and arms were covered in small bugs that stuck to my sweaty hairy skin.

When I get back, I fiddle around some more with the Orange SIM card, suddenly, it works, problem is, I do not know what I did to make it work!
Turns out, that was a false alarm, still not working!
... the permanent garden of Charmont which acted as a retreat from the hot weather, was like a tiny paradise away from France with the Indonesian inspired jungle, river running through, lush greenery and mist rising up. It even had mosquitos - a genuine experience!
After 3 days of Chateau hunting (we also saw the rather forgettable Chateau Blois) and wonderful bike riding we were excited to be heading off into the sleepy Dordogne area for some tranquility and different French ...
