Today we are in the area of Bourgogne surrounding Chablis. The trip started with usual challenges: forgetting to tell Wells Fargo I needed my card activated for use in France, 3 hours lost attempting to get a sim card, and blowing up the hotels fusebox followed by tech difficulties with my video editing software. This means no video blog for today. As they say, c’est la vie!
The sun sets very late here (9:53) and we did not arrive at our hotel until after sunset at 10:30 pm. We shot this image in a vineyard just across from the village Chablis. If you like it make any donation of $10 or more for a chance to win the #1 first edition print on gallery wrapped canvas in a size of 20×30 worth $900. All backers dated since we departed (June 3rd) through when we return (June 18) are eligible to win! Winner will be chosen by a random number generator.
And just as we expected, the stories here write themselves. We booked a hotel in Tonnerre to follow some travel advice of our sponsor Perrine of Perrine’s wine shop. Over a glass of local wine with the hotel owner we discover we are staying in the home of Perrine’s grand mother. For the whole story you must wait until the fall!
Check back in tomorrow and please consider becoming a backer of La Culture du Vin.
Thanks to everyone for all of the love and support.
