First of all my apologies for the wait. I have been in France preparing my cousins wedding so there was some time in between blog posts. The place we went to in France is Sommant, it is a place in the middle of nowhere in the Bourgogne. You can compare it with travelling back in time, the houses, the streets, everything is old fashioned and looks like a ghost town, but a pretty one. My family and I have come to this place for more then 15 times already. We always camp on the grass fields of Chateau de Valogne. I will insert pictures of the castle below. The cool thing is that there is nothing in the neigbourhood at all. As kids we always played hide and seek around the castle, made a swing in the trees, build a dam in the small rivers around the campside and we made long walks and horse rides in the mountains. In the evening we ate marshmallows around the campfire and that was pretty much our holiday. Perfect times! Chateau de Valogne is my home away from home.
This place is so special for our family that my cousin decided to keep her wedding party at the castle. In July family and friends will all go to France, stay in the castle and on the camping and celebrate the wedding. Last weekend we went to prepare the last things like ordering the wedding cake, find a hotel for the wedding night, we had the rehearsal dinner and we found the perfect chappel to keep the wedding ceremony in. I must say that it was a really good training for me to speak French! In such small towns in the mountains hardly anyone speaks English. It was an amazing weekend and I wanted to share some pictures with you! Sorry for the late post but really there is no internet at all. Which was very relaxing on the other hand, time to reflect and relax is always a good thing. Enjoy the sunny weather outside today!
With love, Irina
