... It was nice to sit out of the rain, although it did come in the sides a bit. It was so much fun driving around. We went towards the back, through big sections of trees.

We think we're so clever these days but what these guys were able to do... And the fact they weren't daunted by the time it would take or the effort. Very inspiring.

... question to Lara and she said yes! We did not know they were in Blois so we caught up for a cuppa, viewed the beautiful ring and went our separate ways. We feel privileged to be the first of family and friends to celebrate this occasion with them!

Blois is a fairly typical city, built close to the Loire river, on a rocky outcrop and overseen by a powerful local body; in this case the Dukes of Blois. The chateau here was a bit different from others as it was primarily a ...
