france: saturday 091209

Thursday, January 21, 2010

After our wedding, we drove to the Chateau de la Treyne, on the Dordogne River – another breathtaking place.

This day included a pre-breakfast breakfast (with strawberry juice!!), a hot air balloon ride at Rocamadour, breakfast (with kiwis and personal quiches!), walking around the chateau’s grounds, and a gastronomic dinner that is not possible to imagine (and without photos, youll have to try to imagine it anyway).
