    • Day 7


      August 2, 2022 in France ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

      After our first evening on the banks of the Dordogne, we enjoyed Patricia’s hospitality and took a leisurely breakfast in the garden, both becoming particularly fond of her homemade apricot jam. We eventually made it out into the heat and did some quick exploration of Fronsac, a village just across the river, before stopping for a late lunch at a restaurant across the water from our previous evening’s setting. We then enjoyed the pleasures of Patricia’s garden swimming pool, cooling off from the steep temperatures and taking advantage of the water. Although a minor head injury was sustained (no first aid required) the time in the pool was certainly a highlight!

      After a nap, we went back out into Libourne for dinner (extreme application of insect repellent required), taking up our reservation at Bistro Maratime, another spot by the river, and had a wonderful evening full of wine, beef and superb people watching. A highlight of the evening was the salsa dancing class taking place on the pavement just next to the restaurant terrace which we watched for hours over meal. Naturally, we joined in after dinner and did some pavement dancing of our own.

      Le Grand Départ

      March 15 in France ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

      Ca y est! Après 4 années sans voyage personnel à l étranger (ou à cause de mauvais karma), le Grand Départ a sonné. Quelques tâches et ajustements de dernière minute avant de boucler les valises.
      Départ de Libourne en train à 16h42 pour aller vers CDG ("beaucoup mieux que Roissy" diraient certains) en passant par Angoulême.
      Actuellement dans le train, retardé, le ressenti est partagé par à la fois l excitation du voyage et à la fois le destress de toute la planification depuis des mois. J'ai très chaud : j'irradie mes voisins de mes 40 degrés corporels.
      Ah! Un bon départ débutant toujours par une galère, la valise a connu un léger écueil : un trottoir mal négocié, une chute, une fracture de la poignée. Rien d invalidant ; juste un air abruti, mais fier, de devoir trainer 20kg de valise à roulettes en courbant l échine.
      Enfin bref voilà ! C est parti!
      Namaste India (Bahrat)!
