    Chateau Chambord

    June 19, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    Chateaux Chambord to Paris.
    We had "petite Dajunier at one of our favorite patisserie places in Amboise: Bigot.
    We drove along the Loire River so the family could see two chateau's along the way: Chaumont and Blois.
    We finally arrived at Chateau Chambord and was pleasantly surprised to see very few cars in the parking. We parked in the second row, and were thankful for it.
    We toured the chateau with gusto and determination to be done in two hours...and we did. There were many photo opportunities along the way. For those uninitiated, the chateau is gigantic with very large rooms. There isn't much furniture, tapestries or paintings. However, the chateau is breathtaking in size and the roof is a photographer's treasure.
    We left the chateau, and the Loire river on our way to Paris.we got a bite to eat and took a boat cruise on the Seine River. The weather was cool, but the views were wonderful.
    We are all tucked in with dreams of the Louvre, Notra Dame and going to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
