Happy Sunday, my friends.
Wishing you a blessed and peaceful Sunday.
Please join me on Wednesday for the WP weekly photo challenge( it will be coming out late for me this week). In the meanwhile, if you are interested, you can go to check out what other people are posting with the theme “From above”.
Otherwise, I am very happy to share you May’s destination for D and I – Bourges. This city is located in central France and an easy trip from Paris.
This is the Unesco World heritage site, Saint Etienne cathedral .
Bourges is a mere 2 hours from Paris by train.
This city is famous for the cathedral, the city’s most illustrious son, Jacques Coeur, who lived during the Renaissance era. Jacques Coeur who was a supplier to the royal court in silver and also helped to establish an international business network. This done by setting up business”counters” ( I imagine like a modern-day franchise) and by also using commercial fleets for trading.
There are also many of those old wooden houses (like in Rouen) that I now know to be called “half-timbered houses”, but also a very interesting marsh land area with gardens that is close to the center of town.
We will be in Bourges for two days .We leave on the 23 May.
One last note concerning the future prize drawing ( to be held next August). We have 17 people who commented since I put up the prize drawing post. That’s pretty good! We had 13 people in last year’s drawing, so that shows how the readership of this blog has expanded.
If you want to know more about the prize drawing, you can read the following post:
Happy Sunday to all and have a good week.
