Candes Saint-Martin, my favourite spot in La Touraine.

Where to start?

Exactly a week ago I was sipping a cool beer on the terrace of the 'Café du Château', the little bar at the foot of Amboise castle. It was the start of a very busy and interesting week, with lots of visits, good food, many laughs and meeting up with friends I hadn’t seen since last year or even longer.

I’m still trying to figure out how to organize my coming posts. There is so much to tell and there are so many photos to show. Fortunately, I have kept a short diary, simply listing the things we have done ... in case my memory should let me down. So fasten your seatbelts as we are about ready to take off!

Sometimes the real story of a journey is the difference between your plans and what you actually did.

But I know you planned this trip very well, so there can't have been too many surprises for you (not sure about for your friends, though!).

Carolyn, Even after eleven previous visits I didn't know that the Loire Valley held so many surprises ... even for me and in spite of my careful planning ;)
