Last week, the English family I am staying with took me on holiday with them to the Loire river valley in France. That’s where all the chateaux are. We rented a gite, or small cottage, which the seven of us called home for our ten-day stay in the French countryside. I’ve broken down the trip into the seven days we spent site-seeng. Any other days were spent travelling, swimming, walking around Loches, or just chilling at the gite. Hope you enjoy these pictures and my reminiscences my first ever trip to the land of Descartes, Joan of Arc, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Richelieu!
