Bonjour! The only word I know but it’s a start!
In Marseille. Luggage collected and a wonderful reunion with Christine and meeting her brother Michel, who is lovely and very French. He speaks as much English as we do French… (so lots of bonjours and side kisses) A brief tour through Marseille then an hours drive north-east to where we are staying. On the property are Christine’s fathers house (with the Australian flag flying for us) and our separate unit a short distance away.
We have a coffee (deliciously French) and Christine runs us through our itinerary for our stay. A village and vineyard a day for our first week is planned. All I can say is I am so excited… so much to see, do and drink …. hope you’re ready… it’s going to be amazing!
I expected to be able to take a little nap after lunch to recover from the hours of flying… Christine had in mind something completely different…
Time for a beautiful, delectable lunch on an outside table Christine has set up among the vines. Very French. Amazing cheeses, salads and of course Champagne… Woooooo – Yes we are definitely in France!
