What a glorious day to wake up to. The sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky and not a puff of wind, today is going to be awesome.

Fontaine-de-Vaclause was a gorgeous town with lots ...
... Mass and was a lovely experience. We then returned to the Hotel and met in the foyer at 12.00pm before checking out and then walked down to the bus terminal. We had still some time for lunch before catching the bus at 2.00pm.
