... of Champagne-Ardenne. As we were driving through this part of France we hadn't seen any grapes and I thought it would be pretty hilarious to be in the Champagne region and not see any vineyards, lucky we went to Verzy! Next to Verzy is the village of Verzenay. Verzenay is very quiet, surrounded by fields of grapevines and home to many wine caves.

TGI... Whatever, we are on holidays!!

A travel blog entry by larissajcroom

The three guys raced off to work and Eloise and I enjoyed the break and stayed in bed!!
