Wherever the road takes us...

My husband and I are the perfect team; He loves to drive and I love to "passenger".
We both prefer the unscheduled, unmapped, wherever-the-whim-may-take-you style of vacation. Sure, it can be stressful and sometimes we end up hungry, out of gas, going the wrong way on a one way street. But, most of the time
we find one nugget of gold after another.

Here's one that we came across between Le Mans and Saumur, that I like to call "Home Sweet Home".








































As with any grand estate this one comes with its own moat and stables.

After walking around the grounds and pretending like this chateau was ours, we jumped back in our rental car (yes, my husband was thrilled when he was offered a Mercedes E-Class at no extra charge), ready for the next discovery!

  2. The last photo of poppies field is gorgeous! And I love the picture from a bridge, feel the moving, nice view.

  3. So funny -- I had the same experience in France of getting a Mercedes upgrade at no extra charge. I think it was because I had reserved an Automatic transmission car and they didn't have any others in stock. Is that what happen to y'all?

    1. I think we just lucked out! My husband was given the choice between the Mercedes and an equally awesome Volvo. Thanks for visiting Aaron, nice to meet you :)
